Search Word Pro has been released--an online search tool that is designed to search search engines, blogs, invisible Web resources, government search engines, magazines, and news search engines and sites in a new way. The technology is the culmination of over four years of research and development by former federal government researcher Paul J. Krupin and Don Short, programmer and President of One Word Telecommunications, both based in Kennewick, Washington.
When a user visits SearchWordPro.com, they click on the Search Builders button, which opens a list of topics. Users select topics from the list to create a search query, or enter terms of their own choosing, then click the search button at the bottom of the page. A Launch Page then opens with 25 to 50 search engine options; users click on a search engine and it automatically adds in advanced search syntax. Search Word Pro also provides for "Saved Search;" up to 20 searches can be saved. A "Shared Search" button allows users to send the search page to someone via email.
The Search Word Pro Web site contains over 90 topic specific search builders organized into a dozen categories. The program allows users to select from over 250 search engines, and uses a vocabulary of over 12,000 words. The free demos available for use at Search Word Pro site cover the topics of Crisis Help, Health, and Job Skills--these are specially designed to provide emergency public service information in time of need.
Users receive one year user access to a small suite of search builders starting at $10; comprehensive access runs $17.95 or $24.95 a year. Multi user packages are available at discounted rates and search builder sites can be custom designed and deployed for public or private use.
