unouni.com is a niche search platform which focuses on University web sites around the world, allowing the academic community to search for information directly relevant to their own interests within their own peer group.
The growing vertical search market and the search requirements of niche user groups, have driven the development of unouni.com, providing a single search on Universities through the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, with further country specific searches scheduled as the popularity of unouni.com develops.
Powered by Google, the unouni.com search pulls together University web site content into specific country based indexes, allowing users to derive search results directly related to their own national communities, or examine results for similar search criteria across international institutions.
The benefits of zoning the search into both University specific and country based indexes has come from the founders 8 year insight and experience while working with The University of Edinburgh, UK, where he managed information systems, specialising in delivering and deriving intelligence from information stored across the Institution.
As well as the academic communities themselves, prospective students and the general public now have a resource that allows them to search for courses or news across a bona fide group of organisations and only return directly relevant results.
For example, a general search on Google for ‘mba’ returns over 250 million results, using the unouni.com platform, powered by Google, only the top 100 relevant results from institutions directly within the country of choice are returned.
The decision to partner with Google to provide search results allows the unouni.com team to focus on the business of communicating and supporting their mission to bring relevant content to those who need it.
The result is that unouni.com is rapidly becoming the search point of choice across the University and College community.
