The HoursMap Store Widget is well-suited to blogs and websites with a local focus. To make holiday shopping easier, webmasters can create a widget that shows hours for popular local stores such as Game Stop, Old Navy, and Walmart. Users will be able to see at a glance what`s open right now as they dash out the door for last minute shopping. "With the popularization of location-based sites such as Yelp, Foursquare, and Gowalla, users are demanding access to more local information via the web and mobile devices," said Wendy Yang, Founder of HoursMap. Yet, up-to-date hours of operation remains one of the pieces of local information that`s often inaccurate or missing.
Using innovative technology, HoursMap brings the most current business hours and location information to users. HoursMap discovers this data using its unique local semantic technology that recognizes and extracts local information from unstructured web pages. HoursMap crawls only the web pages with store location information so that sites can be re-indexed frequently, bringing users the most current data. Users can find information such as post office hours, banks hours, malls hours as well as information on popular places such as Costco, Target, In `n Out, and local eateries and stores. The HoursMap Store Hours Widget is the first offering in the HoursMap developer program. The HoursMap Store Hours Widget can be freely installed on any blog or website.
