Google Executive, N.Y. Times Compete for Local Ads in New Jersey- Bloomberg.com

Google Executive, N.Y. Times Wrestle in New Jersey for Local Ads – Bloomberg.com

New York, NY/ Maplewood, New Jersey– The New York Times joined the fray this month with a Maplewood blog. Their prize: online ads from local companies — the fastest- growing source of revenue for the news business. – Bloomberg.com

The New York Times does not own NewYork.com (Domain Investor Leland Hardy does), NewJersey.com or Maplewood.com as strategic online extensions to their NYTimes.com online property. If the New York Times used a premium geo-domain name strategy to attract local advertisers, they would gain a competitive advantage by multi-channeling their media company to compete in the tri-state (NY, NJ & CT) area’s regional online ad market.

Moreover, the Maplewood rivals described in the linked Bloomberg article clearly shows how some traditional and new media companies, as well as Madison Avenue, do not understand the power behind high-profile geo-domain names as online extensions to a media company’s brand. In this instance (read linked Bloomberg article by clicking this blogpost’s headline), the New York Times has created a blog geo-targeting Maplewood, New Jersey to compete for local advertisers by using a sub-domain (Maplewood.blogs/NYTimes.com). The competing Google executive is using the domain name Patch.com to geo-target the Maplewood local online advertising market.

More importantly, in order to geo-target the tri-state regional and local Internet ad market, media company’s would benefit greatly by using a geo-domain strategy of premium geo-domain names. Listed below are some of the Top premium dot-com & dot-tv geo-domain names that make perfect sense (if the extremely rare geo- domains were attainable) as an aggressive, strategic play for a major online media player competing for market penetration in the Greater New York tri-state new social media arena:

Top Tri-state Geo-Domain Names for NY, NJ & CT :

In sum, premium geo-domain names are the answer to the future of new social media and local search marketing.

Top 10 City Newspapers in Trouble

The Top 10 papers in danger, according to 24/7 Wall St., include (in order):

1.) The Philadelphia Daily News, the smaller of two jointly operated papers.
2.) The Minneapolis Star Tribune, which has filed for Chapter 11 protection.
3.) The Miami Herald, hurt by the state’s severe real estate collapse.
4.) The Detroit News, the smaller of two papers in the Motor City.
5.) The Boston Globe.
6.) The San Francisco Chronicle, a deadline for closing has been set.
7.) The Chicago Sun-Times, the smaller of two city newspapers.
8.) The New York Daily News, which could see losses in the millions.
9.) The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, facing stiff competition in the Dallas market.
10.) The Cleveland Plain Dealer, located in one of the nation’s toughest markets.

The Boston Globe owns geo-domain name ‘Boston.com’. The geo-domains of the above referenced major cities will survive and thrive down the road as old media converges with new media. Traditional print media advertising dollars will continue to migrate online with the emerging trend of geo-targeted, local paid search marketing.
