New York, NY (Vocus) March 9, 2009
U.S. consumer advocacy and customer complaints website, PissedConsumer.com, has introduced Google Custom Search to the site's features. The new on-site search platform allows visitors to search the main site's company profiles and consumer complaints, while at the same time searching the community forums for additional feedback on a company, product, or service. In the past, searching for consumer reports across the entire site and attached community could only be conducted through multiple searches. The process was streamlined to help users find more consumer reviews in a shorter amount of time when conducting research before making purchasing decisions.
"When someone is making a decision of whether or not to do business with a person or company, it's common for them to want to hear past experiences first," says Joanna Simpson of PissedConsumer.com. "We designed PissedConsumer.com to allow for a variety of feedback and company information such as formal consumer complaints, company profiles, and more casual conversations about customer experiences in the forum. Unfortunately, the previous search functions couldn't operate for both the primary site and the forum, meaning both a site and forum search needed to be completed to find full consumer feedback from our users about any given company. The adaptability of Google's Custom Search allows us to offer both in a more convenient single-search option."
In addition to searching the PissedConsumer.com forums and standard consumer complaints, the new integrated Google Custom Search feature allows visitors to also search reviews with pictures (in a separate section of the site from standard consumer reviews), consumer advocacy information, consumer tips, and the site's collection of government resources.
"The new search feature helps more than consumers," says Simpson. "It can also be used by professionals and companies to search for, and respond to, consumer complaints and feedback more efficiently."
PissedConsumer.com is a premier consumer advocacy group, featuring service reviews and customer complaints in a social networking environment. The company uses online tools to publicize reviews and complaints filed by consumers on the Internet. In addition, the site offers a set of free tools necessary to bring the dispute to a fast and successful resolution, including a consumer complaint letter generator and collection of consumer tips and advice in the site’s consumer advocacy section.
