Our Hometown Press Coverage


  • Looking for a better way to connect with your readers online and have them stick around longer? Check out SmartClickConnect. Created by Our Hometown, Inc., the product hopes to tap into a reader’s natural curiosity to better engage with them. SmartClickConnect can be used on both Web and mobile news sites, and it automatically tags names, major topics, events and places in a news article.


  • Developed by Our Hometown, Inc., News Bayou aggregates news articles using the company’s Points Mentioned product. Launched early last year, Points Mentioned uses a simple algorithm to target locations mentioned in a paper’s online article.


  • In newspapers’ race for digital revenue, being small is no excuse not to run fast. Many community newspapers, typically dailies and weeklies running south of the 50,000-circulation mark, have been as aggressive in their pursuit of digital dollars as their much better resourced peers in larger markets.

  • Want to know where breaking news is taking place in your neighborhood? Our Hometown, Inc., based in Clifton Springs, N.Y., has introduced Points Mentioned, a new product that will help newspapers target locations in their online stories. By using a simple algorithm, Points Mentioned zooms in on locations mentioned in an article — whether it’s the next city council meeting or a person’s place of birth in an obituary.

  • PointsMentioned is a tool that reporters can use to quickly create maps to go along with their online stories. PointsMentioned uses “natural language processing” to automatically identify addresses, cross-streets, and specific sites mentioned in articles, and then generates maps based on those geocoded locations.
