Local Corporation (NASDAQ:LOCM), a leading online local media company, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the company patent number 8,312,125, which covers a method and system for the bulk acquisition and development of multiple web domain names.

Issued on Nov. 13, 2012, the patent describes a system and method for enabling the bulk acquisition and management of multiple web domains.

The patent covers the technology related to the fulfillment of web domains.

The method includes collecting a set of domain names for bulk content development, some of which are derived from user-provided keywords; filtering the set of domain names based on matching the domains to most-often used search terms by consumers; automatically submitting domain names for purchase; applying a template to the web domain related pages; and inserting content in those pages.

“The domain name industry continues to grow, with the number of domain names registered worldwide expected to top 305 million by 20181,” said Heath Clarke, Local Corporation chairman and chief executive officer.

“This method is already being used as part of our Launch by Local SMB fulfillment platform and forms the basis for our site expansion into lead generation verticals. We’ve spent years developing our intellectual property portfolio, and we’re pleased that this key patent has issued.”
