Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
http://www.OurTown.com, the nationally branded, hyper-local platform of 70,000 Websites which cover every U.S. ZIP code, has gone live with the production version of OurTown's site, uniquely focused on the combination of Local News, Local Views, Local Search and Local Commerce. OurTown has just appointed its 1000th Local Editor, expanding the pool of talented professionals who are seizing the opportunity to earn a substantial income by operating their own hyper-local news site.
"With OurTown's backlog of applications in hand, we expect to rapidly grow to 5,000 Local Editors by year end, covering more than 25,000 U.S. ZIPs," said Roger Ach, CEO of OurTown Media LLC. "OurTown has attracted a wonderfully diverse group of Local Editors who are Teachers, Realtors, Mompreneurs and Bloggers; all solid citizens who are active in their community and interested in being paid for their work," added Ach.
With its emergence from Beta, OurTown.com is featuring a new front page, an enhanced navigation system and several new features, including its comment and blogging system. Local Editors will also find all pages pre-populated with feeds from Topix, Newser, Oodle, and The New York Times. Local Visitors can access an upgraded Local business search system that will allow Local advertisers to showcase their hyper-local content.
