Website contents page in magazines

February 20, 2008

I want to go into more detail on this later, but thought I’d just mention the ever-increasing ways publishers are finding to drive print readers to their websites, to the point where some magazines have full pages dedicated to the website’s content, just like a regular contents page. Here are some examples from Condé Nast Portfolio (February 2008), Vibe (March 2008), and Wired (February 2008). I was surprised that Wired don’t offer much more than what’s here, they have a pretty popular and content-heavy site after all…however a lot of their editorial does end with a link to further writing or other content. Also, note Vibe give equal billing to the website at the top of their masthead.
