Geotagging News

A fundamental technique that enables innovation

Geotagging leverages important location data about your content, allowing you to offer readers meaningful experiences for places they care about.

How To Geotag

Geotagging is easy with Bloom! In fact, it can take as little as 5-10 seconds to geotag a single news story. Here are three options Bloom provides:

  1. On our local news map
  2. In your WordPress with our WordPress plugin
  3. In your non-WordPress CMS using our Geotagging API
