Anybody noticed the inquirer.net transition?

I blogged about the rumored break-up of Inq7.net from media partner GMA 7 almost 2 months ago. You can read more about it here.

So, I noticed earlier today that some of the sections of Inq7.net are now resolving to inquirer.net already. See sample screenshot below:

Inquirer

You can actually see this now if you go to the section via the left navigation tabs. The screenshot here shows the Technology section as http://technology.inquirer.net

I might have overlooked this but I’m pretty sure this domain transfer was very recent. Again, I might be wrong still it’s a bit sneaky to inject the new domain there, eh?

This clue adds up to the whispers about the breakup. It could happen anytime soon.

    Here’s what Joey Alarilla said:

    INQ7.net = Inquirer.net + GMANews.tv

    GMA’s better off getting a YouTube Director account a la CBS.

    I think inquirer is still partner of gma7 since inquirer.net still have links for Gma7. Maybe they will update the links at the bottom of the new inquirer.net site. hmm…

    Mike Abundo said “TV is dead. GMA 7 is dead weight.”

    Hindi rin… :p

    Abe, may hiwalayan ba talaga? ;)

    By the way, finalist ang GMANews.tv sa Webbys.

    Yes, it is necessary. Back in the dotcom bubble, Big Media thought the key to online success was Even Bigger Media — hence Inq7.

    Now more people know what deep Internet surfers have known for years: the key to online success is niche media. Inquirer is in a better position to address niches than GMA.

    I noticed this since last week. New domains appear once I click to the other sections of the site. Too bad the two companies are parting ways, then again it’s all necessary if one is to survive in the age of ‘new media’.

    Secret!!!

    Maybe it’s because Sunstar and most other newspapers use static html with the keywords in the title, while INQ7 uses dynamic URLs with “id.”

    In any case I don’t think they care much about those old pages. Philstar and MB don’t care at all and just wipe out old pages!

    Guys it is so obvious that inq7 is moving into real estate or remittance marketplace business and just look at the front page.

    What do you mean by very weak on SEO? based on what i know, inq7 gets lots of hits from outside of rp (you should noticed the ads everywhere)

    I also observed that inq7.net is very weak on SEO. It is usually beaten by Sun Star when it comes to old news.

    I know why it’s transitioning… but I can’t tell!

    Probably just the sites. GMA have a different approach, Inquirer have a different plan.

  15. Avatar for Carlo Carlo says:

    Actually all sub-pages are now resolving to inquirer.net except the ads section.

    It’s very recent, I didn’t notice this before, we’ll see what will happen in a couple of days or weeks or months.

    i have a question, is the break-up meanig inq will not support GMA 7? or just a separation from the GMA 7 news and the newspaper itself?

    I saw some links below for gma 7 and about inq7 and about inquirer.net? the about inq7 relates to the site while the inquirer.net relates to the news paper. hmm maybe they will update this
