With Yahoo News, AOL News and Google News now among the top destinations for online news, it's more important than ever for colleges and universities to make sure their press releases are showing up in news search engines. With more than 50 million blogs, 100 times more than there were three years ago, it's also important to learn how prospective students are using blog search engines like Technorati to cull through 1.6 million legitimate posts a day.

This teleseminar will show CHE members how to put the "public" back into public relations. It will cover the latest information on using news search and blog search to increase Web visibility for academic institutions. For more details and to register for the teleseminar, please visit
