I remember seeing in the paper where they had hired a new webmaster so maybe thats why.

The guy they hired is not a webmaster, he is the online sales ad rep. He has nothing to do with the posting of the content on the actual website. He sells online banner ads that are posted to the main website.

They are terrible wrote:
Its because their circulations is way down. No one looks at their online advertising anyhow its a waste of money.
Poor guy has a dead end job. Cant compete with google or facebook.
Their circulation is not way down. In fact, its held very steady all throughout the recession.

The 70 or so people that frequent topix to run people and businesses down ain't exactly that crowd that likes the paper. Still, look at the facts: The Plain Talk has about 6500 subscribers to their printed paper and 7000 unique daily visitors to their website. That's about 210,000 unique visitors per month, making online banner ads among their most valuable spaces. Don't know anybody local with a facebook with that much traffic. Older folks prefer the paper, younger folks prefer online - prolly as simple as that.

Ok and how do you know that? And what difference does it make who does the updating as long as people get the news whether it is online or in the print product? I do not see why people complain about it. You get the news reported to you. Ray Snader reports the same news. If you dont like it, then keep living with your head in the sand. This is your local paper. You people are the ones that create the news, the npt staff simply does its job and reports it to everyone else. Dont like the paper? Then dont read it. But you sure as heck better not call them and except them to cover something for you or your business or your church.

Newspapers, in general, are a dying breed, similar to mail-order catalogs and public libraries.

<quoted text>Wrong you can advertise for free on facebook(which has huge traffic) and google search dwarf what the POS plain talk can do, yes even with your pathetic SEO crap thats usuless. No one clicks on your banners I invite everyone to use to tool google analytics and watch what shitty traffic they really have and how much its drops off. No one uses it and its a waste of money. Trust me I know.
You're the moron. If you ADVERTISE on Facebook to take advantage of its overall traffic, they charge you money and it's more than what local media charges. You can have a Facebook page for free, but it's reach is limited to your handful of friends -- hardly enough to influence sales. As for click thru rates and SEO crap - your comments reveal that you know nothing about marketing - not a surprise. Google Analytics is the source for their online traffic, which you'd know if you read the paper.

Papers aren't dying, they're transitioning to a digital distribution model over the next decade. Big newspapers are struggling during this transition, but small papers are doing fine

I hate to break this news to you, but you are so wrong. Newspapers will always be around! Pulblic library usage has drastically INCREASED over the last few years.

I I did not mean to destroy the compliment. I kind of replied to the other people who complain about the paper at the same time. Sorry to the person who posted the compliment and sorry to the reporter who does work to update the web content. I should have clarified myself. I apologize.

Cut the shit you dirt bag. Leave Katie out of your stupid drama. If you want to run some one in to grown run Nelson Morias. He is hinding all kinds of things in his passed. He is the psychoic liar. He kisses the Sheriffs ass all the time. That is why the CCSD is always in the paper. So Back off you retard. Go get your crayons and helmet and get on the short bus out of town.

No I'm just acting like Some of the stupid people here in Newport.
People get on here and start shit about other people it's not right. I'm just sorry that some one has to hurt a friend of mine by posting shit about her. So Back off. If you didn't write the shit about Katie then shut up.

This thread is a perfect snapshot of the problem with the people in this town and how they use topix. The post is started to share GOOD news for the community and it's paper. Then the business is run down. Then the people working at the business is run down. And the never-do-wells running every thing down can't spell OR behave any better than an eighth grader - because that's all the education they have. What a poor little piece of the earth.

I'm grateful for the paper, for Katie, for Nelsen, and for the CCSD. Piss on the immature haters.

Katie is a swell person, for a jersey girl. Watch out she might cut you.
