NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine - https://archive.org/web/.

Cool Site of the Day designation drives hot traffic

Another one of my web efforts, HealthNewsReview.org, was named Cool Site of the Day by The Kim Komando Show one week ago today. Komando says she “hosts the largest talk radio show about computers and the Internet.â€? The program is heard on over 450 stations throughout the United States. One thing is known: traffic to HealthNewsReview.org soared. This week, the site registered more than 1.3 million hits and had more than 30,000 unique visits. Almost 400 of those visitors became registered users.

After just six months of operation, we have reviewed 208 health news stories on the site.
