Enter the SparkPeople Web Search Sweepstakes

Tuesday, July 07, 2009



We're excited to announce more improvements to our "Web Search" page--PLUS a new contest and a chance to earn more SparkPoints!

Most Internet users like to set a search engine such as Google or Yahoo as their homepage, and some people like to customize that page with things like news or favorite links. Did you know that SparkPeople offers a page just like that?

Setting your browser's homepage to www.sparkpeople.com/websearch is another great reminder of your health and fitness goals and will allow you to:

  • Search the web with a search powered by Google or search all of SparkPeople.com

  • NEW: view your SparkPeople Friend Feed to see what your SparkFriends are up to

  • See your local weather, including the current temperature and forecast

  • Add news feeds from USA Today (See the latest Headlines, Entertainment, Sports, Tech, and Health News and more)

  • Add your other favorite RSS Feeds

  • View your daily horoscopes from Tarot.com

  • Create a list of links to your favorite websites

Now, about that contest...

    Dear SP Team:

I had tried several times to set SP as my home page, but it just never took hold for some reason. Do not know what I did incorrectly!

I will keep trying, thanks for SP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it here!!!!!

    Does this contest apply if you have already set SP as your home page or only to new subscribers?

    I would love to do this, however, both computers I am using (at work and home) are work computers and I cannot change my homepage ... sigh....

As soon as I get a personal computer I will change it, even if the contest is over.

  I thought it was a great idea. I downloaded it, and it survived one web search then converted back. This is a new HP mini notebook and it came with windows vista installed. (Hard to find a new computer without it). I got more porn spam on yahoo than mail, so I don't yahoo! My search over-ride has been successful with Google and they keep the spam out of my mail box! If I have to download SPARKPEOPLE.com every time I log on, that's one more stress I don't need. I'm willing to try searching on the site when I'm here =) emoticon
I'm back, clicking on the google feed allowed me to add the spark search to my google page, but I don't if that qualifies for searhing from the spark page. I guess I'll find out sooner or later emoticon

    Same here, I already had it set as my homepage. It helps, when I sign on, to remember to log in my food and exercise.
