Wall Street Journal Twitter Lists

November 25, 2009

Today I unexpectedly discovered all of the Wall Street Journal’s Twitter lists.

Won’t setting these all up via RSS to be fed into my Google Reader and iGoogle account excite Mr. Murdoch even further?

Scanning all of the Wall Street Journal feeds (and now their listees) in one homogeneous format like an iGoogle page should make identifying the articles I would like to read much easier than trying to visually strip out all of the extraneous information that usually occupies the Wall Street Journal’s homepage.

Free: Enjoy The Wall Street Journal Online Courtesy of Bing

July 1, 2009

While searching for an article on the Wall Street Journal online today, I found the following banner ads from Microsoft’s Bing strewn across the site.

Bing Wall Street Journal

When I initially logged into my account via Firefox, the Bing banner ad consumed over half my screen then it shrunk to the size above.

According to their display ad below, Bing has also made the online version of the Wall Street Journal free today.

Any ideas how many Bing searches were generated via these Wall Street Journal banner ads?

Or how many Wall Street Journal subscribers will convert to lifetime Bing users as a result of their exposure to Bing ads?
