Bergen, Norway (PRWEB) June 8, 2005
Today Deriva.no launched its free Norwegian news aggregation service, updating its content every 15 minutes from over 70 news sources. Deriva is operated by Hjertaker Media who have partnered with UK based search technology company, Ultra Knowledge, in order to offer their users improved ways to search the news. Deriva offers a single access point to over 70 Norwegian news sites where the articles have been categorised into specific topics, enabling easy access to content on films, music, sport, local news etc. Deriva collects its news from a wide range of sources covering the local and major newspapers of Norway in addition to specialised areas of focus such as information technology and financial news.
Olav Hjertaker, founder of Deriva, stated, ÂLocal news is very important to our readers and unlike other sites that group all Norwegian news together, we have ensured easy access by categorising the local news into the specific regions and counties of Norway.Â
Deriva removes the need to visit multiple news sites and duplicate searches, as it can now easily be found in one place, saving the user time and effort.
Hjertaker stated " It can be frustrating having to visit multiple news sites as they all have different navigations you have to work out and they all use old search technology that is simply not good enough. We selected Ultra Knowledge search technology as they have provided us with new and effective search features that no other news service is offering. Ultra Knowledge allows us to put the search user in control, offering a number of ÂassistiveÂ search tools to help them find exactly what they need."
A news search on Deriva gives users the ability to view and compare the different variations and opinions on the same story, instantly, ensuring the users always gets the full picture. Deriva intends to expand its service to cover all Norwegian language news sites, so that users have a one stop shop that points them to the sources that offer the best coverage of local, national and international news.
