A big welcome to New York Post, now hosted right here on WordPress.com VIP!
The powerful daily newspaper just launched this morning entirely on WordPress and the WordPress.com VIP Cloud.
Also joining New York Post is its popular gossip section which now has its own domain, PageSix.com. It also has a new design which features new high-resolution, expandable photo galleries.
Both sites prioritized high-resolution images as well as an emphasis on mobile. Per an article in Ad Age about the launch, New York Post expects their mobile audience to continue to grow:
In year, Mr. Angelo said, half of the paper’s audience may be coming from mobile, which is why the Post followed the example of many others on the internet, making its site fit any screen on any device.
The team integrated Elasticsearch to aid the search of the New York Post’s huge article database in seconds and return relevant results to the user, across any topic. The New York Post has a huge content archive, which is difficult to comb through using traditional search infrastructures. The user is now able to filter results via the faceted search in an efficient and intuitive manner to pinpoint an exact article.
