Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) May 30, 2006
CityTownInfo.com (CTI), a unit of Moving Traffic, Inc., announced today that it is providing Google search users with free instant access, via the new Google Co-op program, to its extensive database of information on thousands of US cities and towns.
Available immediately with free signup, the service allows people who search Google for “palo alto”, for example, to see CityTownInfo’s profile of Palo Alto, California near the top of Google’s results page. In this example, the profile includes the city’s population (58,598), location (15 mi NW of San Jose), area code (650), political leaning (Democratic), relative household income (high), along with numerous other characteristics. Users can also click on a link to access CTI’s complete city profile (for example, at http://www.citytowninfo.com/places/california/palo-alto).
Users can sign up for the free service on Google, at http://www.google.com/coop/profile?user=008291016253664647185. After sign up, the service becomes available to a user searching for a town or city at Google using one of these formats: “boston”, ”boston ma”, or “boston massachusetts”.
CityTownInfo.com provides demographic information, written profiles, data on housing, neighboring cities and towns, schools, income, weather, crime, and much more, for thousands of cities and towns across the US. The site also ranks each city or town on dozens of characteristics and highlights areas where each city is unique or notable, and provides a community space for visitors to offer their own comments on each city or town.
Eric Enge, VP of Marketing for Moving Traffic, said, "We’re proud to be one of the first sites in the Google Co-op program. We expect Google’s Co-op to be a real success because it offers searchers fast answers in response to their searches, not simply a list of relevant external links.”
