SortFix Launches Search Refinement Service

Mar 11, 2010

SortFix announced the launch of its eponymous search service, which helps users refine searches. The service works by suggesting specific terms that could be added to searches to garner more accurate results-adding "locations" or "menu" to a search about restaurants in a specific city, for instance. According to the company, the service is designed to replicate the way in which more advanced users refine their searches based on initial results, ultimately ending up with a more tailored and customized experience.

After conducting a search, users are able to select additional "power words" from a list of suggestions and related terms. The service currently supports searches through Google, twitter, and Bing.
