Blogs » Your Advocate: an editor's blog » How do you find related articles?


We've added another new feature to our website -- related articles.

Now when you read an article about, say, Texas A&M's emails regarding the University of Houston-Victoria, you'll see along the right-hand column links to other stories we've published on the subject. The goal is to make it easier for you to find stories that interest you.

We owe thanks to digital developer Shawn Willmon for this magic. Behind the scenes, our reporters and editors are adding keywords to stories to help the system find the related content. We expect to get better at this as we get used to how the system works.

As long as we're on the subject of related articles, I'll add a link to a UHV story off our site. The Houston Chronicle has written its first story on the UHV controversy, which I'm sure will be of interest to Advocate readers: Should Texas A&M take over UH campuses?

One of the best features of the Internet is how deep you can go, if you like, on any subject. How else would you like to help guide you around the Crossroads?
