Weather for your site...

easy, complete, and its FREE

Remember when it used to be a real pain to get a local weather button in your site? You had to sign up for extravagant services, or 'steal' the code from other sites and modify to suit your own zip code. No more!

AccuWeather.com has launched a newly redesigned and re-engineered netWeather v2.0. Improvements made to this dynamic, free weather content make it the only offering of its kind optimized for use on all types of web sites, including blogs, social networking sites such as MySpace.com, Spanish-language sites, international sites, and more.

"AccuWeather.com is happy to respond to the huge interest in personal web postings with the only free weather sticker that really serves the needs of all kinds of sites," said Jim Candor, SVP of New Media for AccuWeather, Inc. "We are reaching out to the international blogging and social networking site communities, offering the sizes and easy downloads they need and optimizing our stickers for popular sites like MySpace.com."

Responding to requests from its customers, AccuWeather.com's netWeather v2.0 offers a number of features that are not found in other free weather stickers. For Spanish-language web sites, AccuWeather.com is releasing a Spanish-text version of netWeather v2.0. The new netWeather v2.0 sticker is available for every ZIP code in the U.S. and for locations all over the world. AccuWeather.com's netWeather v2.0 includes a sticker optimized for MySpace.com and offers smaller sticker sizes that can be easily integrated into any blog or personal networking site. AccuWeather.com's netWeather v2.0 will also be made available for download directly from some social networking sites, allowing users to add the weather to their personal pages without clicking away from the site.
