Evanston, IL (PRWEB) December 12, 2006
MyPublicNotices.com, the leading online resource for legal and public notices, today announced the launch of a co-branded Web site for its newest affiliate, The Washington Post. The site, created in cooperation with WashingtonPost.Newsweek Interactive, is located at http://mypublicnotices.com/washingtonpost.
The siteÂs features make it easier to search the information in The Washington PostÂs legal notice advertisements, which are updated daily. ÂLegals,Â as the ads are sometimes called, are an important resource for users interested in public sales, government contracting opportunities, and a variety of other topics. WashingtonPost.Newsweek Interactive will update the site daily with legals published by the newspaper.
Users locate legal and public notice ads from a growing list of newspapers through sites hosted by MyPublicNotices.com. The company hosts feature-rich, co-branded public notice sites for more than 30 newspaper affiliates. In addition, MyPublicNotices.com has built a national portal site, http://mypublicnotices.com, and 12 separate statewide portals, to increase accessibility to the notices it collects from more than 200 newspaper affiliates.
MyPublicNotices.com has expanded rapidly since its July 2005 acquisition by Legacy.com, which is best known for its newspaper obituary program. ÂOur goal is to provide the nationÂs newspapers with a similarly compelling program for the important but often overlooked category of public notice ads, Â said Stopher Bartol, President and CEO of Legacy.com. ÂWorking with an industry leader such as The Washington Post is a significant step toward that goal.Â
