Navisso Search (http://navisso.com) invites webmasters to include their websites into Navisso’s final searchable index. Navisso Search’s Head Developer also talks about Navisso’s development plans to inform webmasters and end-users about “what Navisso is really about”.
Natalie Wrens, Navisso’s product manager said: “We are inviting all webmasters to submit their websites to the Navisso search index. Submitting your web site today means making sure of becoming a part of our final search index launching in early 2007.”
Navisso’s Head Developer Bernd Hilders talks about “Navisso Insights” in order to make web-users understand what Navisso is really about.
Mr. Hilders (Head Developer) said: “To make sure our visitors understand what Navisso is really about, I have compiled the following information about Navisso Search:
Navisso is developing a searchable index so that web-users can locate interesting, family friendly and highly related web results. Unlike many other search engines, we employ our own indexing web-robots to pick up fresh content every day. Navisso doesn’t return any search or advertiser feeds – we provide content our indexing robots found while travelling the web.
Many web-users stepped forward to provide feedback and to forward complaints. While we understand most users expect to find Navisso.com first while searching for Navisso, we would like to make it clear why this is not always the case.
There are many search engines on the web and each of them employs different methods to index content. Some search engines base their search results on back links, while others return advertising feeds on top of their own database results.
Navisso tries to reward content-rich sites instead of pushing official web sites, well known web sites or even web sites linked from thousands of other sites. We believe our ranking methods will return more information to end-users, because in the end it’s the web site’s content that matters.
Talking about other search engines, I would like to provide an example. Let’s compare Google results to Navisso results. If you search Google.com for “Google” you will find Google.com as the first result. This is what webmasters and SEO’s would expect – but it is wrong.
Why should Navisso reward a web site by pushing it to the first rank if the content of the site simply doesn’t contain enough material to index? Have a look what you see if you visit Google.com - you will notice it’s “Web Images Groups News Froogle Maps more »“ and maybe a few words like advertising, ‘about us’ and some preference links.
Now compare Google’s web site with sites like virtualpromote.com, lockergnome.com or searchenginewatch.com and you will quickly notice that these sites provide more information about Google than Google’s start page itself. Would it be fair to list Google.com above content-rich web sites? We don’t think so.
Of course, the search engine world is led by search engines like Google, MSN Search, Yahoo and many others, but in the end it would simply make no sense to launch another Yahoo, Google or MSN Search, as we would just copy their ideas, ranking methods or business plans.”
Navisso Search is operated as “beta test” and therefore only returns a small set of the complete database. Currently only web sites written in English are accepted into the index, but we are planning to offer international search indexes as well in 2007.
