PPS new layout

The new Project Petaling Street layout is working nicely and we are pleased with its current performance, although some tweaking and further addition needs to be done in order for it to be working at full functionality. We have kept advertising opportunities and aesthetics in mind, without sacrificing usability and performance. We firmly believe that user experience and monetising opportunities should and can go hand-in-hand together, and we have kept those two things in mind when developing the layout for the new PPS to its final completion.

We have been getting some good feedback from PPS users. Majority of users have expressed their delight and satisfaction with the current layout. We are happy to know that you enjoy the new layout for PPS and we pledge to serve you further as the end-user. Unfortunately, however, some people with an axe to grind have been going around spreading mischief and negative criticism towards PPS, for no other reason other than that the ownership of Malaysia’s first and leading blog aggregator is now under the management of VCTech Network. One can easily notice how unfounded those claims are. The changes are certainly not “horrible, painful for the eyes” (the colour scheme is in standard black text on white background layout), the content are certainly not “cluttered” (on the contrary, we may say that may be true for the previous layout) and there are certainly no “more ADS, ADS ADS” (what are you, a sourpuss?). Some people need to understand that PPS is not a charity and we have employees to pay their dues and web hosting does not come as a free service.

Look out for more improvements as we go along this journey to improve the services of PPS, the face of the Malaysian blogosphere!

VCTech Network acquires Project Petaling Street (PPS)

VCTech Network has acquired Project Petaling Street (PPS), a well-known blog aggregator in the Malaysian blogosphere, from its founder and original owner. We view this acquisition as an important step for our company in offering quality web products related to our business niche, which are blogging and search engine optimisation. In line with its new tagline “the face of the Malaysian blogosphere”, we have worked on promoting PPS and driving more traffic to the site, hence providing users with a good collection of blog posts and PPS users with exposure and traffic to their respective sites.

Our vision for PPS is to continue the policies of its previous owner and to improve on it by providing visitors with a better user experience. Towards this end, we are working on and will launch the new template layout for PPS which will have a better colour scheme and is in line with current Web 2.0 internet trends. We will also work on upgrading the PPS backend and provide more features with the current system before we decide on the next step to take.

These changes are necessary for the future of PPS and we intend to aggressively push through with it. We hope that PPS users will continue using our blog aggregator and showcase “the face of the Malaysian blogopshere” to the world.
