I was contacted by someone asking why we never linked to 49ers articles from Examiner.com. I have actually been keeping an eye on this project for some time now because I find how they are doing business fascinating.
While not actual press, there is a screening process for their writers and their sites does not appear to be flooded with articles that are just spitting out news that can be found from other sources. However, we try to keep the news wire filled with articles from reputable sources. How different is Examiner.com from RealFootball365 or Bleacher Report? I am not sure yet. These writers are getting paid (not much -- but paid) by how much traffic they bring in. I am keeping a close eye on them to see if we want to include them.
What are your thoughts? Is this something you would find valuable in the news wire?
