Vivisimo Launches Search Site

Oct 01, 2004

Vivisimo, a provider of intelligent clustering and meta-search software for organizing search results, has unveiled, a full-service search site powered completely by clustering technology. Instead of presenting long lists of results, groups search results into folder topics, in an effort to give users a quick overview of the main themes in the results and letting them focus on topics of interest. Designed provide easy access to information that is usually overlooked with current search engines, Clusty was built in response to the success of a demo search box on Vivisimo's corporate Web site. The default Web search on Clusty includes several shortcuts for items like stock quotes, weather, dictionary, and more. Besides basic Web searching, visitors can search dedicated tabs for shopping, news, blogs, images, Wikipedia, and gossip. The final tab, "Customize!" lets users customize Clusty to suit their requirements. Visitors can choose the tabs to display from a list or create their own tabs by selecting information sources to search.
