Topix.net and CitySearch Announce Partnership

by skrenta at 8:18 AM

I'm very pleased to announce a fantastic deal between Topix.net and CitySearch. Topix.net will be providing local news headlines to CitySearch, for inclusion on their city guide sites in their top 40 markets. We'll also be integrating local ads from CitySearch's advertiser base into Topix.net. Read more from Gary at SearchEngineWatch and ClickZ.

Combined with our distribution through Ask Jeeves, My Yahoo, info.com, Newsgator & other RSS clients, and sites using our javascript headline widget, this deal should drive even more traffic to the news providers whose stories are being localized by our AI. Note to local bloggers: if you've got quality hyperlocal content, we'd like to get you into our crawl. We can help your posts show up on major sites and drive you traffic.
