20 Years Ago on Nov. 10, 1998 -- Winter Women's Health

November 10, 1998: Lead promo features pretty stock photo woman to promote Women's Health content, which basically meant exercise and diet content. The top text promo features the all-new AOL 4.0, while the second features online shopping for the anti-procrastinator.

In the Web Centers column, you can see pencil markings for what looks like proposed adjustments to the listing order, presumably based on their popularity. (Or at least our perceptions of their popularity. This starts to get into our metrics process, which I'll get into more later.)
[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
