HowStuffWorks.com (HSW), the Web site famous for its easy-to-understand explanations of how the world actually works, and The Reader's Digest Association, Inc. (RDA) announced a strategic partnership in which RDA will contribute 50,000 articles to the HSW Web site over five years. In RDA's first large-scale digital partnership, HSW will be the exclusive English-language online publisher of these articles in many popular categories including home and garden, science and nature, lifestyle, and how-to reference content, such as sleeping better and reducing stress. Until now, this material has only been available in print.
HowStuffWorks.com's quality content is highly ranked by the world's leading search engines, attracting an audience of approximately 15 million unique users each month. The addition of the RDA articles to established categories within HSW will create unique and compelling opportunities for advertisers, who can now easily reach groups of engaged consumers interested in areas such as DIY and home and garden topics. This partnership also represents a new revenue stream for the RDA articles, which, now available in their online format, will be able to attract new advertisers.
By adding RDA content, known worldwide for its combination of quality and personality, HSW is continuing to expand its portfolio of expert information and to enhance the user experience. Recently, HSW has contextually integrated thousands of engaging and relevant video clips drawn from Discovery Communications' vast video library to provide information-seeking consumers with a rich, multimedia experience. Now, consumers will be able to read HSW and Reader's Digest Association articles about everything from remodeling your kitchen to growing an organic garden to setting up a home wireless network, augmented with video clips from the Discovery family of networks.
