Hi, what are you looking for?

Expressbuzz.com Relaunched As NewIndianExpress.com

The New Indian Express, which was earlier hosted at ExpressBuzz.com, has re-launched its web news portal as newindianexpress.com. The New Indian Express is an Indian English-language broadsheet daily newspaper published by the Express Publications and is based in Chennai. Just in case you were wondering, in 1999, the Indian Express had split into two groups, following a family settlement after the groups founder Ramnath Goenka passed away: The Indian Express with the northern edition (at www.indianexpress.com) and The New Indian Express with southern edition.

The New Indian Express Group publishes newspapers in English, Tamil and Kannada and magazines in Tamil and Malayalam, across South India and Orissa. It also hosts 9 websites in 5 different languages – English, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam. It’s group websites include Dinamani.com Kannadaprabha.com Andhraprabha.com Apweekly.com, Cinemaexpress.com Malayalamvarikha.com, and Indiavarta.com.

Our take on the revamped website:

Navigation: The site features two top level navigation bars, one linking to the group’s other publications and another one linking to various news sections within the New Indian Express website. There’s a ‘Breaking News’ carrousel featuring the latest news updates with text and picture thumbnails, and a 3 column structure with the middle one featuring highlights from major news sections, the left hand side column featuring links to Features and the right hand column featuring trending stories, editor’s picks, polls and social media plug-ins. at the time of writing this post, we found that the site features banner ads and video ads.

Content: The newindianexpress website covers National news, World news, State-wise news (South India and Orissa),  Business, Cricket, Sports, Entertainment, lifestyle, editorials and video interviews. Currently, the news portal wires most of its content from independent news services like IANS, AP and others. Apart from that, it also sources content from news portals such as IBNLive.com. There’s also an ‘Ask Prabhu’ section, where readers can post questions for Prabhu Chawla, Editorial Director of The New Indian Express. He answers select questions, which are published on the site. The site also offers an e-paper.

Features: The website is social media friendly and allows users to share links on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, and email articles.

However, we observed that the site doesn’t allow users to register on the website. Due to this, users can’t personalize content, or bookmark stories for later reading, and have to enter their name, email id and captcha every time they want to leave a comment, since it doesn’t use a comments platform such as Disqus or Facebook.The portal offers Search, allowing users to filter results by relevance, date and type
