    Please don't tell me i'm too late!

    Because I am willing to put my effort into helping you out. I checked the site, and it does not look bad. Since I am here, for starters, where do we go from here? Get back at me and let me know.

    re: hi

    good-afternoon Kelvin Brown,


    will keep this short as i must log off...


    WEBSITE ~ well brother your site need META-TAGS... each page need to have seperate tags, etc... ok?


    Example:

    ==
    <TITLE>Black News Channel.com - Look up black news on your favorite Black celebrity...</TITLE>
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="black news, black news, black gossip, Black celebritys, news, black news, black gossip, Black celebritys, news, black news, black gossip, Black celebritys, news, black news, black gossip, Black celebritys…">
    <META NAME="Description" CONTENT="Black News Channel.com - Look up black news on your favorite Black celebrity...">

    ==
    ==

    right below your HEADER tag...


    NOTE: over 90% of my visitors find my sites via the search engines...
    GOOGLE, AOL, YAHOO, ASK.COM and a few others... then you have the directories such as LOOKSMART and DMOZ...


    have a nice day...


    sincerely,
    c.t.adams-///

    Hi Cedric,

    Not to late all. The site is by no means finished. Likely, never will be.

    Right now, I just need to know what topics or who in the news you would like to see covered.

    i.e. BET, blacks in hollywood, Black finances, black pilots, etc.

    Thank you C.T.

    I am very familiar with the techs aspects, but right now I am more concerned with finding what other want to know about and providing that info.

    My brotha:

    From brotha to brotha, I am real proud of your success. From the way I seen it, it did not look likt the website was unfinished. Actually, it looked pretty darn good. I didn't think that you needed THAT much help. You got off to a good start. I will do the best that I can without sounding like I want to take over the business. My purpose for being involved in this is to contribute to one strong brotha's success. I will start searching ASAP.

    Cedric

    again thanks for the kind words.

    There are still 2 big pieces that will be added to this site. I just got a list of suggestions. But, I am still looking for for.

    this site is for the People, not so much for me. I want to provide info that will make people want to visit this resource repeatedly. That means I need to put up news of interest to the People.

    Thanks

    re: hi

    good-afternoon Kelvin Brown,


    well brother i checked out your site again, and i see you have NO REAL CONTENT? just links my friend to PRWEB.com, etc...

    you need to get people writing for your site? let them send in articles, and so on... as a visitor i would have NO NEED TO VISIT your site again, when i could go directly to the source such as ABCNEWS.com, FOXNEWS.com, etc...


    have a bless day...


    sincerely,
    c.t.adams-///

    Thanks for the feedback.

    But I do differ in the opinion as to real content. Yes, you are correct in that the current content is a collection of news headlines from multiple sources.

    Part of the intent is that you can visit here, first, to get a glimpse of all the major headlines, instead of having to visit ABC, CBS, etc. I am putting it all in one place, making easier to filter.

    As to my own content. I do have one of my own sited that will be a pheed to this this. The problem is getting people to submit Articles, articles. And many articles I turn down, because I am looking for more of a business use for the articles on my site. see. www.supportblackbusiness.com.

    As more articles are submitted there, they will also be added to black news channel.


    As soon as settle on the software, I will also add a blog, to the news channel.

    I am not saying what it is until I finish the setup, but there is something else being added that will make this site different than most any other site, that uses news pheeds.

    Thanks again,

    kelvin

    P.S. I have a few articles here, on the site, http://blacknewschannel.com/cgi-bin/articles/articles.cgi , but I am not going to use that in the future, because the article manager does not fit my future needs.

    Do you have my e-mail address? If not, then we will go on from there.

    It will take hard work and research to make this work.
