I'd be a fanatic if Patch would use the actual website links associated with companies, homes for sale, businesses, or places of interest, and not some BS link to a sub-page on Patch. I understand you're trying to boost your host numbers, but do you know how redundant it is to Google search EVERYTHING on here, and how stilted it seems that the editors seemingly know how to use the internet, but never do? Perhaps the next time, we can just click a link that takes us to the places you talk about, and not this gambit of repetition on Patch Patch Patch Patch.... you're not the only site on the internet, gladly. I'd fear Jason Lea of the Mentor Patch thought police would turn us into hipster cliches, full of insincerity and double speak legalese, overspent and angst ridden over copy pasting their news into my news. Long story short... black and white text isn't that hard to decipher. Cut the crap and drop a link to the websites of things you post online. No one has clairvoyance and we don't need to extract one line of information to attain information on another website. I'm tired of this cognitive dissonance poop.

Hi, Zachary. I genuinely am not sure what you're talking about. Do you mean when I post links on Patch's Facebook page or do you mean in the story itself? Because the links in the story go to YouTube (which is not associated with Patch in any way.) And, if your concern is how I use the Patch Facebook page, then you should note how other news agencies use their Facebook pages. They almost exclusively post links to stories on their site.

Zachary, you really don't make any sense. You might want to clarify what you are describing. Is it really that hard to click a link? Life's tough.
Zachary Shook January 14, 2013 at 04:14 PM
Follow me here, it's not hard. Facebook has a direct link to Patch. We come to Patch. Patch takes you to a page with general news. So, if you were talking about Cold Stone Creamery or Buffalo Wild Wings, Patch only links to Patch, not the other sites. Patch has erroneous links, never having any direct website linkage when stories are being written about places with a website. No real cites, only assumed uniqueness. It's just another trip I make to detect information here, crop the wild card text, and then go to a website I need to to get the actual information. That doesn't make my life hard. The idiocy of it as a whole does. Simply put, you're a third party, much like training wheels to a bicycle. We could get rid of unnecessary banter by adding links that go from Patch to the actual website, usually done in the header with store or web info, for stories written on Patch and Patch only. I don't know how that undermines the intelligence of the editor, the journalists, Patch itself, or the site users, and, if you're the editor, and you don't understand that, it saddens me to see how, collectively, the educational system has failed us, at even the college level, and perhaps you should coordinate with journalism as a journalist again until you perfect it, and then return as editor. I can't see how they'd give someone inexperienced such an important job as this one without understanding people.
Jason Lea (Editor) January 14, 2013 at 04:37 PM
Zachary, you're basic logic is flawed because I DO link to other sites when it's pertinent. I link to other sites in this very story.
Kyle January 14, 2013 at 04:37 PM
Your condescending tone does not enhance your argument Zachary. Almost every single business facebook page directs you to their own site when they post content, even if that content is from other sites around the internet. You don't need a college education to see this either. This isn't anything new. It is actually a really bad business practice to have a site direct you away like you are suggesting Patch should do.
Zachary Shook January 14, 2013 at 05:08 PM
Okay, so, the gang's all here. Where do I go to inquire about these homes then? Youtube? Okay... so now Youtube is the conglomerate for home ownership as well. Not seeing the point? Who do I contact, other than the third party's information through the youtube link, to inquire about the housing for sale? If I were a business owner, and Patch was interested in doing an article on me, how would I get word of mouth associated with the article link? It seems counter-intuitive to the practice not to have a way for a consumer to have access to information being propagated by the site detailing news. ABC, NBC, Getty, Reuters, AP, and several others, for instance, have direct links to the parties named if such pages exist. You're showing your column experience as amateur, at best. Kyle - I'm not certain you're helping this at all. I don't imagine they'd hand an editorial job to someone without a college education, so, you're grasping straws on your reflexive remark. "It is actually a really bad business practice to have a site direct you away like you are suggesting Patch should do." FALSE. Only if it's not the party named directly to their direct website. (i.e. - century21.com, etc.) Jason - it's "your," meaning belonging to or associated with any person in general, not "you're," meaning you are. Again, I'm just asking for a direct link. None such exists. My apologies for making such robust remarks when all I want is information. I'll go back to my code writing job now.

I have added links to the online listings. Thank you for the suggestion.
