EDITOR: Steven Matthews, MLIS

Knowledge to Business (K2B) is an update service
for business owners and professionals. Twice a 
month you will be e-mailed links for business articles 
that have stood out as submissions to BPubs.com
[ URL: http://www.bpubs.com ]. 


I've received a number of questions regarding the 
"BPubs" name. Typically people will wonder "If you 
index articles why do you call them publications?"
Good question... and while the answer sometimes
includes "because BArticles sounds strange",  the
real answer is that I'm hoping BPubs will evolve 
beyond written discourse. 

As the web becomes more multimedia driven, I can 
index video seminars, audio presentations, or any 
other format that business content takes. The common 
element here is that different types of business content 
will be "published" on the web. Hence the "pubs" part 
of BPubs. 
Enjoy this weeks articles ;-)   Steve

You may have caught the BPubs homepage tagline
and wondered "what's that all about?"  Well... BPubs 
is crusading for a miniature revolution in the way 
search engines work - it's called "Content Indexing". 
You can read more about why indexing 'only content'
may become a trend in the way search engines are 
changing at the BPubs "about this site" page.
