Powerful Blog Searching Added to RocketNews Search Engine

Rocketinfo Inc. (OTCBB:RKTI), a leading international
supplier of real-time news and competitive intelligence software to
corporations, governments and professional service firms has added
powerful new tools for searching weblogs to its popular RocketNews
search engine.
Commenting on the new features, Rocketinfo Director of Research
Martin Thornell said: “We’ve been offering weblog searching on
RocketNews for some time, but we really wanted to improve the search
experience. By categorizing the blogs in our database and allowing
users to specify that they want results from particular types of blogs
or blogs from a particular geographic region, we’re providing the
ability to create tightly focused searches that produce the results
people want.”
RocketNews was one of the earliest search engines to offer the
ability to search weblogs and the company is raising the bar by
offering powerful parametric controls. In addition to standard Boolean
search tools, visitors can refine their blog searches by limiting the
results by date, geographic location, such as North America, Europe or
Asia and content type, such as technology blogs, business blogs or
health blogs.
There has been a rapid increase in the number, popularity and
influence of weblogs in the past 12 months. Weblogs are having a
profound impact on politics and technology, and are influencing the
way traditional media outlets gather and report the news. Marketers
and public relations experts are also eyeing blogs as a powerful way
to reach consumers. With the number of blogs expected to exceed 10
million by the end of this year, Rocketinfo expects huge growth in the
number of visitors using RocketNews to search for blog entries
matching their precise requirements.
