Content - Health Info

Really worth it or Hype?

AP News just stated the other day that all internet age groups top search is health information. Do you find the claims worthy of the praise and feel that website that add content about health will bust their hits, just because of the Health Info? Comments, anyone?

>top search is health

I saw that and was skeptical, too. However, my reaction was tempered by recent financial article headlines saying that some of the health websites are headed towards profitability (WebMD, I assume?). If that's the case, then that seems to offer some validation to the claim. Also, the term 'health' may have been amplified a bit beyond what I tend to first think of as health-related to include searches on weight loss, viagra, anthrax, smallpox, vaccines, aerobics, etc. When you take all of that into consideration, it's a really huge category.

Where is that story at? I'd like to read it. (searched yahoo, but didn't see anything that looked like that).

It was a AP News article that was on the radio between the 6th and the 13th of this month. I will see if I can find it. Thanks for the post
