    WH-D: Web 2.0 Site Comes With Object Lesson - Missing Media Kit

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    I may be unusual, but one of the first places I go when I’m trying to understand what a web site is all about is its About section. WH-D’s About section is located in the lower right corner on the home page – not necessarily where I would have put it, but certainly legitimate. Here’s a screen shot:


    All right, I’m going to start at the top. You can see the Advertise With Us section, and how they want you to “Become part of WH-D. Download our media kit for the many options to advertise with us!” If you’re starting up a web site, you’d want to get your media kit into as many hands as possible. You’d want to do it as easily as possible. We’re not talking about expensive brochures that cost you something every time you give them out; we’re talking about a simple PDF file.

    At least, I’m forced to assume we’re talking about a simple PDF file. I’m forced to assume this because I couldn’t find it. I tried viewing the page in FireFox, and I couldn’t find anything to click on in that area. I tried viewing it in Internet Explorer. With IE 7, I got exactly the same result as with FireFox; with an older version of IE, I did get a “hand” icon when I hovered my mouse over the area. When I clicked, however, regardless of the browser, nothing happened. I made sure all browsers I viewed the site in would allow pop-ups, so that wasn’t the issue.

    My natural assumption at that point was that perhaps the press release I received was unintentionally sent out early. I shared my suspicions with Dan Garon, and asked him to check into it for me. He replied quickly, letting me know that, despite my concerns, the press release did not come out early, and the site owners believed they were ready to go live when the release was sent. I received the original release at 3:26 AM on May 14. All of the screen shots in this article were taken at least a full twelve hours later.
