defenceWeb launches News By Country feature


defenceWeb is now even easier to use with the launch of its News By Country feature, listing news stories according to which of the 54 African countries they cover.

This handy tool makes keeping up to date with the latest news in any country an easy task. As the news stories are listed chronologically, readers can browse by date to find out what happened during a time period that interests them. This makes it a great tool for anyone doing research on a specific country.

The service is also useful to decision-makers and opinion-formers in government who want to see what coverage their country is receiving. Naturally, the News By Country feature is also an invaluable tool for students, enthusiasts, journalists and people interested in defence looking for a consolidated source of news or as a risk assessment and research tool.

In addition to providing a great value-add to the defenceWeb readers, the News By Country feature is an attractive feature to prospective advertisers looking for visibility in a certain target market. Companies may decide to be visible in countries where they are already doing business or in countries where they intend to do business and need to become more visible. For instance, advertisers will be interested in sponsoring the South African country page ahead of the Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) show, in September this year. Companies tendering for defence contracts in specific countries will want to sponsor applicable country pages to gain maximum visibility for their campaigns.

The News By Country feature is just one of the many ways defenceWeb continues to grow and improve as time goes by and is one of the reasons why defenceWeb retains its position as Africa’s leading defence and security news portal. This is also reflected in its impressive traffic statistics, which recorded 76 000 unique visitors in January – traditionally a very quiet month. Traffic for February is set to greatly exceed this figure.
