1) Obsolete Search Listings to be Deleted
2) New Changes to OCC Search
3) Big Discounts on Advertising

Four years ago, OurChurch.Com implemented a central registration system where users register a single username and password and use that with all their websites and search listings. Since then, thousands of people have updated their search listings to with the new system, but many still remain unchanged. On April 14 we will delete all search listings that are more than 4 years old and have not been updated since then.

If your listing is more than 4 years old please check your listing and make sure it's up to date. To edit your listing, go to http://www.ourchurch.com and search for your listing. Then click the edit icon next to it.

We've made some improvements to the search engine. Search results now include sites that match the keywords in the URL. So, you can search for a site by its address. Search results now have new edit and delete icons next to them so you can update your search listing or delete a listing for a site that no longer exists. Search listings also have a warning icon next to them so you can report dead or inappropriate links (though we don't expect any of the latter since we review every site before it becomes active).

OurChurch.Com is auctioning advertising space on eBay. Advertise your website on OurChurch.Com and the 7,000+ Christian websites we host for as much as 67% off our normal rates and you could have thousands of new visitors to your website in April. Auctions end March 17th. For more details: http://www.ourchurch.com/view/?pageID=155273

We hope you like the new format of our search newsletter as well as the improvements in our search engine.
