This commerce partnership makes perfect sense as we extend our reach to our target audience through internet.com's network of Web sites, which mirrors our content catalog." internet.com, MightyWords' first major distribution partner that is not an online bookseller, is well-known for its network of more than 160 Web sites, including BotSpot.com, ClickZ.com, EarthWeb.com, InternetNews.com and SearchEngineWatch.com. internet.com now offers MightyWords' eMatter, a term coined by MightyWords to describe mid-length, must-have, need-to-know business, computing, market research and professional information. Typical eMatter is between 10 and 100 pages, and is longer than a magazine article but shorter than a book.
