(PRWEB) June 25, 2005 – A leader in Invisible Web search technology CloserLook Search Services Inc., http://www.closerlooksearch.com, announces a licensing agreement with Mamma.com Inc, supplying deep web technology to Mamma.com’s Health Search. This powerful and innovative Internet search tool will help you find detailed information on health related topics. The application is being released (initially in Beta version) on Mamma.com's health search site http://www.mammahealth.com. This site combines Mamma's metasearch technology and user interface, and is powered by CloserLook’s deep Web search technology.

Mamma.com’s Health Search is not just a general Internet search as seen on many search engines. This state of the art search application makes it possible for anyone to simply type in a medical term and get a detailed report within a few seconds. The search results are not previously cached or stored. They are obtained in real-time, directly from the sources. A brief description and definition of the term as well as the causes, symptoms and treatments available for the medical condition are exposed in the search results giving the user a lot more than just a URL list. Links are provided so that one can get in-depth information from multiple sources.

"The search process today is often tedious when the user is looking for specific information ", says Sumithra Jagannath, president and founder of CloserLook. "Search engines are quite useful in providing the user with a list of sites that might contain information they are looking for. However, they do not assemble and present this information in a user-friendly fashion. Our partnership has transformed the current search experience in this vertical into one where users can get the information they want with one click.

"It's the fastest, easiest way for Internet users to find in-depth, non-biased information on any health-related topic. We don't just deliver 'close' results, but results that are dead-on accurate - and handpicked from multiple, credible medical sources from across the Web" says Guy Faure, CEO of Mamma.com.

"The entire Internet Search industry is looking for ways to tap the potential of the Deep (Invisible) Web,” says Ms. Jagannath. She goes on to add, “CloserLook’s deep Web medical search application comes right in the middle of that undertaking and Mamma.com has been the first to license this product.”
