UKWizz the UK search engine is pleased to announce that it has recently introduced a new search service that allows users to search UK news sources.
The new search tool uses data that has been gathered by UKWizz. One of the goals of UKWizz is to use only use our own data. News search is no different.
We index over 200 UK news sources through the day and store all new data in our news database. When a user carries out a search they will search within our data and we return any stored news articles that match their query.
Our results will display a title and description for the news article. When the article is clicked on, it will send the user to the article on the news sources website. News search is available at http://tools.ukwizz.com/news
It is also available from the main UKWizz results pages by clicking on the "News" link at the top of the results page.
UKWizz first launched in 2004 as a UK specific search engine. This is still our goal and we still continue to be one of the few UK based crawling engines on the web.
We hope that the new news search service will prove to be a valuable addition to the site. In order to achieve this we need to continually improve it. We are very keen to attract new sites who offer UK news and would like us to index their content.
Alistair McIntyre, the founder of UKWizz said...
"News search is a very useful tool to be able to offer, news is something that people want to have access to when they are online. It seams natural to offer them access to news from within the UKWizz search interface".
The current news offering from UKWizz has only just came out of beta testing and as such is far from perfected.
"We have a long way to go until the news search engine is truly finished. Currently we allow users to "simply search". Looking to the future we have a lot of very neat ideas we want to put into place within news search."
