I’ve often wondered – but why don’t many online main stream media sites link when they refer to blogs or websites?
I find it slightly ironic – particularly when they write about new media/blogging.
I’m not sure if it’s laziness, fear of losing readers from a site or if it’s just a different philosophy of web design – but I would have thought if a site was seriously interested in providing useful content for their readers that they’d hyperlink mentions of other websites.
Inspiration for this post – Business Week’s How Top Bloggers Earn Money (I resisted the temptation to just give you a dead link). Thanks for the mention in the profiles BW, it was a real surprise as I’d not heard anything about it until I saw Shoemoney write about it (he’d not heard anything about it either). I really should get a new set of head shots taken!
