About.com is an Internet-based network of content, providing articles and videos about various topics. The site, visited each month by approximately 90 million users, competes with other online resource sites and encyclopedias such as Wikipedia.

About.com was acquired by New York Times in February 2005, which later announced plans to sell the site to IAC, owners of Ask.com and the Reference.com network, for $300 million.

About.com lives up to its name, telling you about absolutely anything you’re looking for. Upon visiting the homepage, you’ll be faced with trending articles, ranging from lifestyle to finance to fashion, plus neatly categorised sections offering tips on the home, food, health, style, money, careers, technology, education and travel, so it’s likely there’s something you’re interested in reading about.

The articles are written by a vast range of contributors, all knowledgeable in their respective fields, allowing them to publish the best advice and information that’ll help you expand your understanding of a particular topic.
The articles range from serious and cutting-edge to fun and playful, offering something for every mood, and you may find yourself stumbling across articles you never knew you needed, for example “6 Holiday Hazards to Watch Out For”. Who knew a Christmas Tree could be so perilous?

About.com often appears in Google searches while looking for recipes or how-to articles, proving its popularity. It's well laid out and in my experience, it's been easy to find relevant information, whether I'm browsing a general topic or searching for specific advice.

I’d recommend the site completely, as it’s a great, free source of information.

I would consider reducing the amount of options on the...

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all...

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.
