FirstStop WebSearch becomes the first meta-search tool in the
emerging field of "social bookmarks"
San Luis Obispo, CA (May 31, 2005) -- FirstStop WebSearch, LLC
announced today the addition of a Social Bookmarks search category
within FirstStop WebSearch (www.FirstStopWebSearch.com), their
award-winning meta-search engine software product.
With a single search, users can now obtain an aggregated list of search
from popular social bookmarking systems such as LookSmart's
Furl.net, CiteULike.org, and Zniff.com, a search engine for the
The new search category will be pre-installed in all new
downloads and will be available via update for the existing users of
Social bookmarking systems, which have gained popularity over the
past few years, have brought a new approach to web searches. They
allow searches within the part of the Web visited by users of such
services. The fact that people take time to bookmark and annotate
web pages is evidence of the quality of the indexed content. This
produces search results that are highly relevant and free from "spam".
Although social bookmarking systems are still very young, their
human-built indexes grow every day as more and more people become
active users. The most popular systems, such as Furl.net and
Spurl.net, already have several million web pages in their databases.
To maximize the benefit of social bookmarks for web searchers and to
provide access to a larger number of bookmarked pages, FirstStop
WebSearch combines the most popular services into one meta-search
category, which allows users to query multiple social bookmarking
systems all at once and receive an aggregated list of search results.
