Society of General Internal Medicine Launches New Website on Bridgeline
Digital's iAPPS Platform

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bridgeline Digital, Inc.
(Nasdaq:BLIN), The Digital Engagement Company™, today announced the launch of
a new website for The Society of General Internal Medicine (SGIM) at SGIM.org.
SGIM joins a growing number of healthcare organizations including American
Dental Association, the American Academy of Dermatology, and the Maryland
Hospital Association to select Bridgeline Digital's iAPPS platform to power
its next generation websites.

Bridgeline Digital redeveloped SGIM's main website and consolidated and
enhanced two microsites run by SGIM affiliate groups: the Association of
Chiefs in General Internal Medicine (ACLGIM), and SGIM's Journal of General
Internal Medicine (JGIM). The SGIM main site and the new micro site for the
ACLGIM are now live and the new microsite for the JGIM is in development and
expected to launch in early 2013.

Bridgeline's development team added a dynamic Social Footer to SGIM's primary
website which incorporates interaction and content from LinkedIn, Twitter, and
Facebook that enables increased engagement and understanding of their website
users. Bridgeline also added a comprehensive customization feature allowing
SGIM to change microsite-based templates with ease to respond to changes in
their marketing strategy.

SGIM's new website also features innovative functionality around internal
search and data recovery in its Resource Library. Leveraging iAPPS'
out-of-the-box integration with Perceptive Software Enterprise Search
(formerly ISYS Search), the new site leverages search component catalogs
natively within the iAPPS framework and indexes all media types, including
content within PDF files vastly improving the ease and speed in which users
can access relevant content.

"Bridgeline Digital was extremely innovative with their services," said
Francine Jetton, Society of General Medicine's Director of Communications.
"The Social Footer strengthens SGIM's presence and activity across social
media outposts, which is a key component of our marketing strategy and
critical for our business success going forward."
