Web Traffic to Online Newspapers Increases

WebTrafficUp     As a cyber journalist and curator of website traffic related content, information about website traffic and newspapers really  interests me which is why I wanted to share this piece with you.  I am also introducing a snipet of content curated from Google.  I was reading through a prominent online financial publication where the author indicated that:

newspaper publishing is the most obsolete industry in America” – Porter Stansberry, The S & A Digest

In the article Dan Ferris and Sean Goldsmith continue that, Gannett, the company that owns USA Today is still in a steady decline. In mid-October 2011 the company announced that it’s third-quarter earnings fell almost 4%. Revenue from publishing and broadcasting fell 5% and 6%, as well and the only positive was that the company’s online division, which includes all newspaper websites gained 21% in total revenue.

To further explain the migration from print news, and how website traffic to online news sites has increased consider the recent merger of ABC News and Yahoo.  Also see this content rom Google:

Web Traffic Rules Proposed by China

ChinaInternetImage     * First Featured at Technorati*

Last week, China called on the United Nations to develop a comprehensive set of web traffic rules for the internet.  Chinese government officials claim that the United Nations is best suited for the task due to it’s role in global and geo-political affairs.

The Chinese ambassador for disarmament affairs, addressed the UN General Assembly on information and cyberspace security.  The Chinese voice their concern that the internet is now ingrained in virtually all aspects of our society and has serious concerns that there are no comprehensive website traffic rules.

The ambassador voiced his concerns about web traffic related incidents where malicious damage has occured and stressed his countries plea for international rules and guidelines that govern cyber security of various countries.

Last month, China, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan submitted to the UN General Assembly an “International Code of Conduct for Information Security” that pushes for the implimentation of an open and transparent process for developing, within the framework of the United Nations, international norms and rules for information and cybersecurity.

The Chinese want all UN member states to join in responsible and constructive initiatives to control and govern web traffic flow in cyber space.  Claiming that the internet connects all people more closely within seconds of each other, they are seeking to build peaceful, secure, and equitable cyber security.

The Chinese ambassador called on the international community to work together to make cyber technology better in order to serve world peace and the “well-being” of mankind.

How do you feel about the United Nations governoring your online abilities?  Leave me a comment and let me know,
