MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TigerLogic Corporation (Nasdaq: TIGR) today introduced yolink, a next-generation technology that enhances search by extracting information from behind links and inside of documents.

Yolink offers a suite of new products aimed to make search easier and more productive, starting with an API for integrating yolink into any web service. Yolink can be used to enhance existing search engine results, or can provide site or app search functionality outright. The yolink API is simple to implement and is completely customizable.

TigerLogic also unveiled easy-to-implement yolink blog and site search widgets for non-programmers, as well as yolink Labs, a group of proof-of-concept environments that demonstrate the power of the technology on popular sites and services.

"Yolink technology enhances search and offers a smarter way to cut though the layers of unfiltered, extraneous information to find exactly the information you are looking for," said Brian Cheek, Director of Business Development. "What we've done is provide a way for people to step through links and inside documents to get the information they really need, quickly. This is something the search market and web site developers have been waiting a long time for."  

Yolink technology cuts down the time to research and find key information on the web, in PDFs, ebooks and more. Too often a web search is just the beginning of a real search – for an apartment, for an excerpt, for an old classmate, for a product review. Yolink excels when there are multiple-step or multiple-query searches by taking unwieldy results and surfacing key information so users can quickly find information and focus on getting things done.

Yolink's power is demonstrated in the Labs project section on yolink's website, where any user can experience firsthand how yolink can enhance search results on popular sites and services. Some of the yolink Labs projects include yolink for Craigslist, Google Patent Search, Wikipedia and Yahoo Boss search, among others.

The company also offers a browser plug-in and desktop search application for anyone who wants to use yolink across the web or an individual computer.

Over the next few months, TigerLogic will continue to release products to yolink Labs to showcase the many ways the technology can be applied.
