    * Just got my PingZINE magazine!

    Just received the good ol' pingzine magazine.. not a bad issue either.
    I really liked the Sales and Marketing articles.
    Kudos to Tarik for that great article on page 36!

    What did everyone else think of the magazine? Apart from it being jampacked with ads..

    Yup. I got that over a month ago. Good issue, but yea, too many ads. Although I must say it's really degraded in quality since the first ones.

    Well, guess I get the bottom of the barrel . I really liked the very first issue, every second page is an ad in this issue.

    Oh well, I dont think there are any other WebHosting Magazines out there at the moment.

    Hmm.. Thats funny, I would have never thought that a FREE color printed magazine would have to many ads in it. Guess they should cut down on the ads, so they can dot disappear in a few months..

    The ads aren't the issue, Trifolic. The overall quality of the articles has decreased over time. I could care less about the ads. I was just pointing out that there was... an abundance of ads this issue.

    actually most of the FREE magazines are only pages with ads. Lucky if 5-10% of the pages contain at least some useful text.

    I got my copy of PingZine today as well, and I thought it was an alright issue. I liked the article about keywords, and i don't hate the ads. There are some sites in there that I will end up visiting as a result of reading the mag.

    I'm sure Wordtracker is all happy about that article!
    Some of the ads were nicely designed though, so I guess they were good to look at

    You pick up any magazine and it's jam packed with ads but if the articles are well-written and informative then readers are more willing endure the ads.
