San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2005
FirstStop WebSearch, LLC announced today the addition of a Social Bookmarks search category within FirstStop WebSearch (http://www.FirstStopWebSearch.com), its award-winning meta-search engine software product.
With a single search, users can now obtain an aggregated list of search results bookmarked by users of popular social bookmarking systems such as LookSmart's Furl.net, CiteULike.org, and Zniff.com, a search engine for the Spurl.net.
The new search category will be pre-installed in all new downloads and will be available via update for the existing users of FirstStop WebSearch.
Social bookmarking systems, which have gained popularity over the past few years, have brought a new approach to web searches. They allow searches within the part of the web visited by users of social bookmarking services and allow Web surfers to store and quickly access all the interesting pages they have found on the web from any computer. The fact that people take time to bookmark and annotate web pages is evidence of the quality of the indexed content. This produces search results that are highly relevant and free from "spam."
Although social bookmarking systems are still very young, their human-built indexes grow every day as more and more people become active users. The most popular systems, such as Furl.net and Spurl.net, already have several million web pages in their databases.
To maximize the benefit of social bookmarks for web searchers and to provide access to a larger number of bookmarked pages, FirstStop WebSearch combines the most popular services into one meta-search category, which allows users to query multiple social bookmarking systems all at once and receive an aggregated list of search results.
