RefTagger Serves Over 100 Million Bible Verses

BELLINGHAM, WA—March 6, 2009—In just one year since its release, RefTagger has delivered over 100 million interactive Bible verses across more than 7,500 websites.

Developed by Logos Bible Software, RefTagger ( is a free web tool that webmasters can install to dynamically deliver the text of Bible references within their website. The overwhelming success of RefTagger is due to its ease of use for both webmasters and site visitors.

“We had long been looking for a tool that would display the Bible verses that we reference on our site,” said Shea Houdmann, Director of “Before RefTagger, every option we looked into was either too expensive or too difficult to program into our site.”

Using Reftagger, Houdmann was able to transform over 5,000 Bible references on into dynamic links which reveal the referenced text.

Before RefTagger, sites like had to choose between leaving references bare, manually building links to Bible websites, or copying and pasting Bible text into their site. None of these were good options. However, RefTagger alleviates the problem entirely. Sharing the text of Scripture is now as easy as typing out the Bible reference—RefTagger does all the work automatically.

Since installing RefTagger, has received numerous emails thanking them for adding the functionality.

RefTagger works on any size website or blog, and can be installed quickly and easily by anyone with minimal web knowledge.

RefTagger pulls Bible texts from, and webmasters can choose from over 25 different translations to display. Webmasters wanting to give their site visitors more control can install the RefTagger control panel to their site which allows users to select the Bible translation RefTagger will display.

With 100 million verses under their belt, Logos Bible Software is aiming to serve 1 billion verses in 2009. Additional information and examples of active RefTagger sites are available at:
