The Return of Local Search
We are re-introducing our search for nearby local events, which was one of the core initial features of localendar (in fact, that's where the local part of localendar came from)

We removed this feature some time ago because it was not properly implemented to support non-United States members, and because it was not fast enough. We have addressed both of these issues.

You can click Search on your calendar to get to our "Looking for local events?" option or just click here

In the near future, we will also offer members the ability to include a local search calendar on their site, similar to how you can publish your calendar now.

Re: The Return of Local Search
I have posted a public event with the appropriate zipcode.

The description of the event eludes to the fact of a public search. I just goggled our event and in fact could not find it. Is this pushed to the actual public and if so how. I could not find any direction information about this. The reason for my asking is that we do offer "free" public events and show them on our website. This is one reason why we chose to go to localendar instead of using our existing calendar that has a problem.

"If your Public Event is open to anyone, check this box. This will add your event to the national localendar database. Anyone who does a search for your area will find out about your event".

Re: The Return of Local Search
Per the post above, your event is added to our global (not national, we should correct that) database which is searchable here:

http://www.localendar.com/cal?JSP=Search
You can also access the link for Search from your calendar's Search button.

Google may index your calendar and add your event (as may other search engines) but we have no control over how often they will scan your site and update their results.
