Great Neck, N.Y. (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
Recognizing that people who visit the web in search of information on breast cancer often do so with a degree of anxiety and concern, Health Site Guide, the “pre-searched” search engine for health, has created a mini-site that provides direct links to a wide range of breast cancer information all from one page. These direct links include information available on recognized health websites, breast cancer organizations, and support groups. The mini-sites can be accessed from the home page of http://www.healthsiteguide.com under Health Spotlights. Other spotlights include Autism, Colon Cancer Screening, Diabetes, Heart Disease and Prostate Cancer.
“People who search the Internet for information on breast cancer usually do so for themselves or a loved one. That’s personal, and the concern level is typically high,” states Bob Lipp, co-creator of Health Site Guide. “Typing ‘breast cancer’ on a major search engine yields results that first have to be searched for relevance. Visiting http://www.healthsiteguide.com and clicking breast cancer from our home page Health Spotlights yields pre-searched links to information and organizations that matter.”
The concept of a “pre-searched” search engine is something unique. At Health Site Guide, medical and science writers reviewed over two dozen recognized health sites, while a team of researchers created direct links to hundreds of Health Concerns, dozens of Special Features including video and animation, and more. The mini-site concept compiles these links by specific concern and adds organizations, support groups, and more, including a link to current medical news by topic.
Since its launch about two months ago, Health Site Guide has attracted a growing number of visitors who want information that is easy-to-access and thorough. The free search engine also provides Today’s Health News by topic and free eBooks to members who sign up by providing only a nickname and a password…no personal information is ever required to use http://www.healthsiteguide.com.
“Health Site Guide is designed to be very user-friendly, and provide a wide range of relevant information, adds Lipp. “For example, people who search for information on breast cancer want to be able to access a broad range of information from many reliable sources, fast and easy. They want quality information and they want it now.”
Health Site Guide selected their initial six Health Spotlight mini-sites based on current health concerns. Autism, for example is growing at an alarming rate, and concerned parents want to know why. Heart Disease remains the number one killer, while Breast, Colon and Prostate Cancer are among the leading concerns of people in a cancer-conscious world. Concerns over Diabetes are evident, since it is believed the disease affects over 20 million Americans.
“We believe that people who search for breast cancer information, for example, want one place where they can go to get as much information as possible, including videos, support groups, organizations, and more,” states Alan Lewis, a staff researcher. “Health Site Guide has pre-searched these links in order to make them available on one page, so those who have concerns about breast cancer don’t have to spend their time searching for answers.”
Health Site Guide encourages businesses, universities and health-related organizations to link to our search engine (“Link To Us” information appears on the home page of Health Site Guide), so their viewers can take full advantage of the enormous amount of information available. Links are provided as pop-ups, so viewers can access Health Site Guide without leaving their current site.
