Major Health Websites Pre-Searched on New Health Portal

Share Article,, and many other major health sites overviewed and pre-searched with direct links by health concern, on Health Site Guide

Great Neck, NY October 17, 2006 -- Health Site Guide, a free portal with pre-searched links to healthcare information available on over two dozen sites is making it fast and easy for people to find a link to the health information they need.

Featuring overviews of sites that include WebMD, MerckSource, Mayo Clinic and many recognized health websites including leading US government sites, Health Site Guide was created to take the search out of searching, and provide easy-to-access, fast results by linking viewers to exactly what they need.

Now in its fourth month since the official launch, user comments suggest that Health Site Guide is making a difference for people who have not decided on a specific health site, and don’t want to search endlessly for relevant information.

As one user commented “Everything is there, categorized by health concerns, and that helps when I really need information fast. The search engines are still far too broad-based.”

Commenting on the benefits of Health Site Guide, Bob Lipp, co-creator said “There are a lot of great health sites, but unless someone has chosen one, the results of their search can be daunting as they try to figure out which site is right for them. We’ve taken the guesswork out by pre-searching dozens of recognized sites, and providing overviews on each; as well as direct links to hundreds of health concerns and special features like video, animation and much more.”

The overview on WebMD begins “WebMD is a user-friendly gateway to extensive free information about diseases, conditions and maintaining good health. Here you can post a question on the discussion boards that may be answered by an expert in the field, or find a doctor (and in some cases make an appointment online). You can also check your symptoms and read articles written for the newly diagnosed...” The overview pages, written by independent medical and science writers, are very popular with Health Site Guide visitors, who may use the “reviews” to decide on which site meets their requirements.

In addition to overviews, all sites featured on Health Site Guide are broken down by Health Concerns (from A to Z) and Special Features including interactive tools and much more with direct links provided to the specific page on that site.

Since its launch, 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

“Health Site Guide is designed to be very user-friendly, and recognizes that many people who go online for healthcare information, do so with a degree of curiosity and anxiety,” adds Lipp. “People who search for more information on a medical condition or wake up one morning with the need to go online and check into a possible health concern don’t want to analyze the results of their search. They simply want quality information and they want it now.”
