New AntiqueWeek Website Includes Powerful Search In its continuing efforts to provide services that collectors, dealers and enthusiasts can use, AntiqueWeek has redesigned its website with several innovative features.
News-Antique.com - Nov 30,-0001 - KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. April 18, 2006 — “AntiqueWeek has always been about creating the best environments for buyers and sellers of antiques and collectibles to research, find and relate to the industry,” said AntiqueWeek Associate Publisher Tony Gregory. “That is why we’ve launched products like our monthly AntiqueWest edition and the annual AntiqueWeek shop & mall guide.
“Our new website is another way for us to accomplish our mission. More and more of our customers are starting to do business on the Internet. The new www.antiqueweek.com is on the cutting edge of new technology, and it should significantly cut the time it takes collectors and dealers to look for the information they need to buy or research antiques.”
The new website is a free service for newspaper subscribers only. AntiqueWeek still offers its forums, but now includes a powerful search engine. This engine will speed through every auction sale bill and newspaper story for the item requested by the visitor. Then, the website will organize the information into an easy-to-review listing.
“Some customers prefer to buy items through our classifieds, and others find deals by attending auctions or shows,” Gregory said. “This website gives our subscribers the ability to find what they are looking for in both our classified and auction ads very quickly. In addition, it will also provide the reader with any news stories that may have mentioned that item.”
“If a customer wants to find a specific style of furniture, our search engine will find every classified listing and every auction ad where that furniture is found,” Gregory said. “Not only that, it will find any news story that has mentioned something about that furniture.”
In addition to the search engine, the website will also archive AntiqueWeek news stories and columns.
From the news side, viewers will be able to read the top news and features of the current issue as well as articles that have been archived. Also readers will find all of the opinion’s stories that run on page 3 each week including Connie Swaim’s column, Circa. There is also a link to submit a letter to the editor or a press release. A recently added feature is a comment section at the end of each article. Readers can post their thoughts on the stories as they are read.
Always striving to provide the best service, AntiqueWeek will continue to add new elements to the website during the next few months.
