MyOutdoors.net adds Google Co-op integration!

I've been wanting to do this for quite a while and I finally got around to it. Google Co-op is a great service that allows you to see relevant search results from a specific website right in your Google search results. In this case, if you are subscribed to our links, you will see search results from MyOutdoors.net when you search through Google. For example, I did a search in Google for "hiking," and this is what shows up for the subscribed links:

We added the keywords from the activity type (hiking, biking, etc.) to our RSS feeds so that the top entry will show up. In the future, we'll extend this even further so that you can add your own tags to journal entries and then more searches will end up hitting more entries on the site. We also want to add custom search to MyOutdoors.net so we can provide even more relevant search results to our users.

MyOutdoors.net on Television! - WKOW Madison, WI - 10:00 P.M. Sunday, November 18, 2006

Apparently the Isthmus article generated a little more buzz than we thought. We were pretty surprised when WKOW asked us for an interview. I don't think I've personally been interviewed on TV before. Hopefully I don't acti like a fool...

Anyway, to all you Madisonians, watch us on TV! 10:00 P.M. Sunday, November 18, 2006 on WKOW, the local ABC station.

Oh, how we love the Isthmus!

We were recently fortunate enough to have David Medaris of the Isthmus interview us here at MyOutdoors.net. It's the first real publicity the site has received so we're incredibly excited about it. David wrote a fantastic article and really made an effort in describing what we're all about. Go check it out.

Thanks, David!
