Trigger Categories



ABCNEWS.com is doing something insteresting. I took a screen grab of their home page after seeing that they are changing the way they group their news stories. If a story is important enough to have many articles on it, they give it a category to itself with scent in the label. The Death of Saddam and Gerald Ford are their topmost categories on the page. MSNBC.com still uses generic categorization. Their top 4 buckets are In the News, NBC News Highlights, Recommended Stories and Inside MSNBC.com. Where are the trigger words there? I wonder if the other top news sites will copy this.
