New search engine ranks results by relevance score.
NimbleCat, Inc. today announced a new people search engine to identify and qualify individuals whose professional experience has been posted on the web. Search results are ranked by applying a relevance score to social profiles and resumes similar to Google's PageRank™ metric for information. This enables employers and other business people to locate individuals with greater speed and accuracy than general-purpose search engines or the search tools of social networks can provide.
The number of people who can be found on social networks and on the global Internet is rapidly approaching one billion. The growth of social networks has increased the ability of people to connect with each other exponentially. But according to Kevin Wheeler, Founder and Chairman of The Future of Talent Institute (http://www.futureoftalent.org) "there is a problem. Search engines were built to search for information. They are terrible at searching for people".
NimbleCat's search engine solves this problem with a relevance metric the company calls the NimbleCat Score. This score is based on the professional accomplishments, management expertise, experience and education manifested in a person's social profile or resume. As a result the search engine is very effective at handling queries like "Marketing communications experts with management experience who have worked at Microsoft or Google". Dr. Sunil Mehta, NimbleCat's CEO and co-founder said "this is a problem the industry has been trying to solve for a long time. Never before has a search engine been able to accurately identify credible professionals with the speed and accuracy that NimbleCat does".
Once relevant individuals are identified via NimbleCat's people search, the search engine makes it easy to reach them. Each search result has links that enable users to find those individuals on Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter or research them on Google with a single click. Or a secured email can be sent without ever exposing the recipient's personal information.
NimbleCat's people search is available on its web site at http://www.nimblecat.com and also as a Facebook application at http://apps.facebook.com/ncsearch. Over one million individuals can be found via the NimbleCat search engine today. The service is free for personal use. Professional users who require higher search volumes and need relationship management features, such as notes and tagging, can choose from a number of monthly plans.
NimbleCat, Inc. was founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to invent new and better ways to connect business people and employers with high value professionals.
