History of

Oregon Coast Beach Connection/ has its roots in a magazine that was on the central coast for almost ten years. As it changed hands over time, it became obvious the technology of the Internet and of handheld devices was going to eventually eliminate the need for print publications, having made sizable dents in that industry already . It was decided in the summer of 2005 that the switch would be made to the Net, and in early 2006 the current model of came into existence, as its daily news stories began circulating on Google news and a variety of other news and RSS feed networks.

In late 2007, the website began utilizing video on top of the other various cutting edge techniques for distributing content, and now has a growing number of coastal videos on YouTube.

In 2008, began utilizing revoluntionary new technology that allows automatically changing content that search engines can pick up on. This allows for small boxes that constantly stream new headlines, as well as weather information and other useful content.

More unusual and visionary approaches will be added to this soon.

As of 2019, the publication gets on average 900,000 pageviews per month.
