| Big Advertisements on Kamat.com|
After much cajoling on part of our ad. agency, I have decided to give the big horizontal banner advertisments (known as the "Leadeboards" in the industry) a try, as you can see on this page, and on the main page.
What's Meant by "Last Updated?"
That's one of the questions that has bothered me ever since I got involved with online conent production. If an ad. banner on a page is changed (like above), should the date of last update be modified? What if a typo was fixed? What if nothing changed, and the page was just republished?
On Kamat's Potpourri, I define "Last Updated" as the date that page was last processed by the Content Management System, whether or not the contents actually changed.
This is necessary for me, because even if I did not edit the page manually, there might be a new picture, a new suggested link, or a relevant hyperlink that has become available since its last update. BTW that's the only way I can manage the hundreds of thousands inter-related links (I stopped counting after 200,000) on Kamat's Potpourri.
At the same time, I am aware of shortcomings of this approach, and to dilute the meaning of it, I have not provided a feature like "What's Updated", or "Browse by Last Update". Our Content Explorer however, supports "Search by First Online" feature (Eg: Pages Published on Aug 15, 2003)
