< Previous: Revising content


In an ideal world, you would simply take the revised list of content and go create it. However, some of the content that users will want may be impossible to provide.

There is also the issue of competing sites. If there are other sites providing basically the same content, how will yours be better?

Unavailable content

If you cannot provide some of the content that users will want, you need to consider the best action. You could:

If you continue without the content, you need to be sure that the content you do provide for that user type is sufficient for them to get something out of your site.

Competing sites

If another site provides exactly the same content as you are thinking of providing, or better, then unless there's something particularly wrong with that other site, there's no reason for you to continue.

An awful lot of Web sites suffer from "ok site, but this other site does everything that it does, and more" syndrome. There's really no point in having these sites on the Web at all.
