The Search page is now a little stronger, thanks to the addition of Google search functionality.
In addition to using the Search page to query our database for movies and theaters, you are now able to use Google to search all the pages on our site, plus the rest of the web.
This addition allows you to find information on our site much easier than before, as the search results are not limited to movie names, cast lists, theater names, and cities. For example, the South Towne Cinema in Madison, WI recently closed. I wrote a Journal article about the closure on Monday about it, but if you did a search for "south towne" using the Search page, you would only find the theater's entry. You would then need to browse to the Journal Articles page to see any related articles for that theater.
Using the Google search dialog on the Search page, entering "south towne" and selecting to search this site, would reveal many more relevant results. Choosing to search the entire web would reveal even more results from all web sites in Google's index.
This additional functionality is now available on the Information and Journal Articles pages for all movies and all theaters in our publication as well. Just look for the "Looking for More Information?" heading on those pages and you will see the search dialog.
Give it a try and see for yourself!
