Web Search Gets Specific: LookSmart Re-designs FindArticlesby Kent Lewis on March 21, 2005Uncategorized
LookSmart (remember them?) have revamped FindArticles.com and added new tools and organization to around 5,000,000 articles – you can now search on a whole bunch of criteria for articles on many topics. FindArticles gives searchers the ability to sort through a comprehensive collection of reliable sources that includes more than 1,000 publications. Searchers can sort results by article date, length, relevance or publication name, and can refine the relevance of their results by inserting new search terms as needed. Other new features include “hot new articles” and “top articles ever” for each of FindArticles’ neatly organized categories: Arts & Entertainment, Automotive, Business & Finance, Computers & Technology, Health & Fitness, Home & Garden, News & Society, Reference & Education, and Sports. After finding the best articles for their search, many users take action by saving or sharing search results. FindArticles utilizes the power of Furl, a free Web page archiving service, to round out the experience. (LookSmart acquired Furl in July 2004.) Furl members can bookmark articles, creating an individual archive that can be recalled instantly from any computer. With five gigabytes (GB) of storage, each member’s virtual library holds tens of thousands of searchable items.
