Search Engine Friendly - Reader Friendly!
Plenty of people love the look and feel of paper and turning a page to see the next fantastic ad or article. Google is not one of those people however! Google needs individual pages, with indexable text content in order to list your articles properly for search engines. Our system is NOT a PDF page-flipper or Flash-based player. Instead, it is a database-driven content management system with individual articles and web pages for each article. While we do incorporate Flash advertisements, and a PDF page turning view for some pages and presentation (each issue available for download as PDF, and for reading in a page-turning viewer for instance), the text-searchable, indexable content is perfectly presented for Google and humans alike.
Direct from InDesign to Website Articles!
With the management sections of the system, you can easily manage the website and can post new articles, and content on your own. If you can use Microsoft Word, then you are familiar with 80% of the management process. Art directors, editors and publication staff require little training to use the digital publishing platform and manage issue and article content instantly.
One of the best features of our website system, however, can be the services that go with it! Once you are on our system, we can work with your art department to create a customized batch-process that allows us to take your Adobe InDesign files or press-ready PDF file and import it directly into the website. With one or two day turnaround, we can bulk import your new issue to publish it to your webiste for you! Often, clients will give us their InDesign files once they have gone to press, or at blueline stage, and by the time the issue is being delivered, your new issue articles have been published online, hassle-free.
Magazine CMS - Your Server or Ours
Once you've taken a tour of our website system, you'll see that we've built it from the ground-up with publishers in mind. The system can host multiple websites in one installation, making it perfect for organizations and publishing groups that have several different magazines. Depending on your needs, we can install the system on your servers, or can set up individual magazines on our "shared" Moore Creative magazine server.
Publication Websites Customized For You
Every instance of the magazine system is customized specifically for that magazine and its needs. We will add or remove any features for you, and during the installation process can work with you to create new functionality as needed. During the design & development process, we work with your art staff to customize the look & feel of the website design to best match your printed publication, we can even work with your designers .Our goal is to develop a site that works perfectly for your publication's online presence.
iPhone, iPad, Online Reader Ready!
The default system is perfectly readable in mobile phones, and e-readers... articles look fantastic in an iPhone or iPad! Also, we can create a customized mobile version of your website that delivers the key articles or newest issue articles ready for quick reading on the go.
