ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Gigablast, Inc., an internet
search engine corporation, starts the new year with a bang! The company
announced today its recent database expansion from 650 million webpages to
over 1 billion. The new index also includes a comprehensive refresh of
webpages from the previous index. Anyone can search the new index from the
company's homepage, http://www.gigablast.com.
Gigablast also recently unveiled some innovative, new search solutions
which are currently free to the general public and leverage the increased
index size. Among these are Dedicated Site Search (DSS) and Custom Topic
Search (CTS). DSS gives webmasters the ability to provide their website's
viewers with search capability for the specific website being viewed.
Additionally, webmasters can provide root URLs to seed the spidering process
of their websites. Gigablast will spider their websites in real-time at the
rate of one page every five seconds. With multiple dedicated clusters,
Gigablast can handle large amounts of DSS queries and webpages. Until all of
a website's pages have been uploaded to the dedicated servers, viewers may be
directed to Gigablast's main index which likely has most, if not all, of the
website's pages already indexed.
CTS was announced on December 20, 2004 and allows webmasters to tailor
their website's search feature to a custom topic. The topic may be defined by
a list of hundreds of arbitrary websites. These websites are entered into the
search tool by the webmaster and are often related to an area of interest.
Gigablast then restricts its search to these websites. Gigablast suggests
that webmasters build their list of relevant websites by harvesting URLs from
an online directory service such as: http://www.dmoz.org/ or
http://www.yahoo.com. Instructions and the html code needed for
implementation of DSS and CTS may be found via links on Gigablast's homepage.
