Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 25, 2005
Ezilon (http://www.ezilon.com) has launched the latest of its regional directories. The company, which originally gained popularity in Europe by limiting search and directory listings to regional results only, today unveils Ezilon Search (http://search.ezilon.com), a human-edited, U.S. - and Canada-specific directory.
With an emphasis on targeted directory listings limited to North American sites, Ezilon Search bucks the industry trend toward automated directory indexing; instead Ezilon relies on a team of editors to review and categorize each listing. It's an approach that produces more relevant results for searchers, said Ezilon President Charles Michael.
"There is no substitute for the judgment of a real person when it comes to reviewing sites for inclusion in a Web directory," explained Michael. "Our objective in the regional U.S. and Canadian site is to produce a result-oriented high quality directory that will be of high interest to a North American audience."
Ezilon Search visitors can restrict their search results to the U.S. or Canada; there is also an option to search worldwide. The Ezilon Search directory is comprehensive and easy to navigate; site owners whose sites are based in North America or contain information of interest to a North American audience may submit their URLs for inclusion in the Ezilon Search directory. Submissions are reviewed and added quickly, said Michael; the company intends to ensure the quick addition of sites now and in the future.
Ezilon Search also offers free e-mail, along with North America-centric classified ads, job search, chat, e-cards, online dating and new or unusual Web sites. Advertising is available across the Ezilon network, which also includes Ezilon sites specific to Europe and EU member countries, the U.K./Ireland, and Australia/New Zealand.
Michael predicts the Ezilon Search model of regional, targeted, human-edited directory listings with a limited hierarchy will appeal to American and Canadian searchers.
"Typically when people search online, they want to find relevant information quickly and easily," said Michael. "They don't want to wade through hundreds of links that have nothing to do with their search or drill down through too many directory pages. Ezilon Search lists only the most targeted North American results in each category, increasing the likelihood that the user will find the right information immediately. We will continue to grow and add directory listings, and we invite Web site owners in the U.S. and Canada to submit their URLs for inclusion in Ezilon Search."
