Dogpile, WebCrawler, Webfetch, to be Powered by blinkx Video Search
London, United Kingdom - (Website Hosting Directory) - November 16, 2006 - Video search engine, blinkx, will partner with web search products and services firm, InfoSpace Europe Ltd., to enhance video search capabilities on InfoSpace's family of metasearch brands.
InfoSpace metasearch combines relevancy weightings of multiple search engines to return the best results, in order to provide users with a more powerful and comprehensive way to search. By partnering with blinkx, Infospace will offer its users the same breadth and relevancy of video search results as it does text-based search results. blinkx video content is now available on InfoSpace's WebFetchPro site and will be added to InfoSpace's other branded search sites including Webfetch, Dogpile and WebCrawler later in the year. Under the terms of the agreement, Infospace will pay blinkx for the video feed results, based on volume of searches.
Dominic Trigg, Vice President at InfoSpace Europe remarked, ''blinkx is a terrific addition to our search portfolio," explains "They offer a unique concept in video search technology which will help us to challenge the thinking of what constitutes a relevant video result on European sites. WebFetchPro aims to maximise the relevance and user experience of our meta-search engine with results provided by our unique relationships with each of the major search engines. The video search arena is a competitive 'hot potato' right now and I am pleased we have been able to take this pro-active step forward with blinkx.''
