Look to your local newspaper for website content

The pundits will tell you that traditional news media is dead. Newspapers are losing market share and going bankrupt in record numbers. But one thing that often seems to be overlooked is the quality of content that many newspapers provide and the frequency they do it with.

I like to read the Toronto Star every morning and I am often blown away by the breadth of research that goes into their investigative articles. Articles that appear there on a daily basis!
Just one of these articles would be sufficient to create a really interesting website which would draw traffic and attention for years to come.

So if you are looking for great content look to your local daily for inspiration. There are precious few websites that go to the trouble that a good investigative reporter goes to in reporting a great story. Depth of research, excellent sources and a compelling read. Make sure you give credit to the origianl newspaper source when putting your website together.
