  • Local obits intelligently presented based on the physical location of the user at the time they access the site
  • Streamlined search box integrated into the site header enabling obituary searching to be easily executed from any area of the site
  • Improved search algorithms to help better ensure that users are quickly and reliably finding the results they are looking for
  • The ability to tag obits of family and friends so that they appear on the user’s home page for persistent and easy access allowing every Tributes.com user to establish their own personalized ‘virtual cemetery’ experience
  • Living Memorial Wall highlighting the continuous interactivity of site users across the Tributes Network with the obituaries of loved ones
  • Simplified access to customization features including obituary alerts, saved locations, and anniversary reminders

“In celebration of the 3rd anniversary of the launch of Tributes.com we are excited to be enhancing our brand image and user interface to be softer in tone and more sophisticated in its design while dramatically improving our site experience to be much more personalized for our users,” said Elaine Haney, President, Tributes.com. “Two million consumers now rely on our brand each month and it’s important to ensure that they can quickly and easily search our database and locate comprehensive obituary and service information and interact with the friends and family that need their support in a timely fashion while simultaneously having the ability to make their regular Tributes.com experience their own – with immediate access to the obituary news they care about and the memorials of their loved ones close by.”
