It’s great, but it SUCKS!

Man.. Korea still won’t come to terms with the internet. And for once I’m not talking about out of date Active-X crud….

the brilliant LIST MAGAZINE, which I suspect I’ve talked about here before, is a great way to push Korean literature to the world.

Until you look at the website in which everything is a graphic….

“Why,” you non-ex-webmasters ask, “would this be a problem?”

Because graphics can’t be searched by search engines and there are not ALT tags (the way you make graphic content searchable) on the site.

And a quick look into the code reveals no useful tags….

You have really nice site.. full of content.. that no one will ever find…


Maybe I’m wrong

  1. The biggest problem is that whole 'thinking about our reader' sort of thing – the thought that if you advertise something in English, we're going to assume / want to believe that the page in question actually IS in English…

    That does suck about their website though… Maybe an e-mail from one of their influential writers would help?

  2. It’s a badly designed site, no doubt.

    But once you go past the main page, there are links and search engine indexed articles.

    Here’s a random example:

    Besides the poor design, my biggest beef is *no RSS*!!!!!
