Gigablast Search Engine Now Offering Related Pages

 

New Mexico based search engine company unveils new Related Pages feature.

 

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, March 23, 2005--Gigablast Inc, an internet search engine corporation, announced its new Related Pages feature which is available to the public via the company’s website, http://www.gigablast.com/.  Related Pages are highly relevant search results which do not necessarily contain the searcher’s query terms. A lot of these related pages are never even returned by other search engines for that reason.,” said Matt Wells, CEO & founder of Gigablast.  To see what he’s talking about, try doing a search for Colorado activities on Gigablast.com and refer to the pastel yellow Related Pages segment of the results page.  Click on the more’ link to expand the segment.  You will see many webpages which are contextually related to the original query terms, but have no obvious direct connection to them.  Many show the word Colorado, but not activities or activity, yet the pages all seem to fit well into the descriptive two-word query Colorado activities. 

 

Now try searching for JVC.  Several of the Related Pages are related to JVC electronics, but others are the homepages of competitors such as Panasonic, Toshiba, Denon, Pioneer, HP, Marantz, and TEAC with no evidence of the word “JVC” anywhere.  Upon searching for the original query terms within several of these pages, one is left wondering how the Gigablast software code is able to distinguish them as being relevant in the first place.  The answers? …proprietary, of course.  Matt Wells said “Be on the lookout for more innovative search enhancements originating from Gigablast later this year.”

 

Gigablast also recently announced a 50% increase in the size of its index from 1 billion to 1.5 billion webpages.  The index was at 1 billion pages just 10 weeks ago.  The new, larger index includes a comprehensive refresh of webpages from the previous index.
