Pacific Northwest Inlander Launches Redesigned Sitenew

The Spokane, Wash., alt-weekly has re-launched its website, Inlander.com. The redesign features faster load times, online archives stretching back 10 years, a regularly updated, all-in-one blog (a la The Stranger's Slog) and, crucially, a searchable, sortable, shareable entertainment listing system. The redesign was made possible through months of work with Wisconsin-based WeHaa, a web-publishing company that is also currently working with the Santa Fe Reporter, Ohio's Athens News and Birmingham Weekly. "My major goal was to really give The Inlander the dream site ... [to] give them the best tools to grab the online market," says Cesar Montes, president of WeHaa. "We keep growing and growing and growing, because we are [always] open to hearing the needs of the publisher."

However, you can still find alt-weeklies that had a pretty good year in 2008. That's just what AAN's editor Jon Whiten did, and he reports on 10 papers that increased revenue in a story published by Editor & Publisher.
