Washingtonpost.com is now offering free headlines on a variety of subjects, including the war in Iraq, to be posted on other Web sites.
Web site owners must fill out a short online form and insert a small amount of code on their sites to get the free headline boxes, which can be customized to automatically post headlines on the war, politics, business, entertainment, food, travel, style, and other topics.
The headline boxes include a “washingtonpost.com” logo at the top, and if a user clicks on any headline, they are taken to The Washington Post Web site for the complete story.
In a statement, Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive CEO and Publisher Christopher M. Schroeder said the new feature “can help Web publishers and developers attract new people and keep their current users coming back throughout the day.” The Post gets brand recognition on other sites and any traffic that may be driven by the headlines.
