Wotbox (http://www.wotbox.com) is an independent Search Engine that over the last year has developed a strong following on the web. Mainly known for its advanced geo-targeting technology, Wotbox displays a flag of the country of origin next to each result on its search pages. It also offers many other advanced features including allowing users to zone in and search only in their chosen country.
"The logical next step on from this was to create a fully localized version of Wotbox for each country." says Director Mike Nott, "We're trying to give international users more choice by providing another local search option for them. We also wanted the interface for non-english sites to be in the native language, making it easier for local users."
The new country-specific Wotbox sites are for:
Australia - http://www.wotbox.com.au
Canada - http://ca.wotbox.com
France - http://fr.wotbox.com
Germany - http://www.wotbox.de
Italy - http://www.wotbox.it
New Zealand - http://www.wotbox.co.nz
Spain - http://es.wotbox.com
United States - http://www.wotbox.us
This brings the total number of Wotbox sites to 10 including the main international site (http://www.wotbox.com) and the United Kingdom local version (http://www.wotbox.co.uk) that is already proving very popular with British users. More localized Wotboxes will also be available soon.
Based in London UK, Wotbox is a true independent Search Engine relying solely on its own crawlers to populate its results. While still in the early stages of development, Wotbox has proven itself as a contender within the search industry by offering one of the most fully featured Search Engines on the web. The team is currently concentrating on improving its geo-targeted localization, link based ranking algorithms and AI spam prevention system. Wotbox are also developing a number of other search technologies for possible future release.
