Vertical Search Solutions

Why offer vertical search engines on your portal or intranet?

At CloserLook™ Search, we develop vertical search engines that satisfy particular search intent of end-users of your portal or intranet. Traditional search engines try to be everything to everybody and offer very broad searches on every topic. However, online search needs have evolved beyond this "jack of all trades" approach. People have a need to search for information on sites that specialize in a particular subject. Without a vertical search engine, this would either mean manually searching a multitude of sites that specialize in a particular subject, or settling for the first few results from a general search.

CloserLook™ Invisible Web Search Technology can deliver vertical search results to satisfy a broad range of user communities. With topics ranging from health and travel to business profile searches and skip tracing, our search engine provides results that are pertinent to the end-user query for that particular topic.

License our vertical searches to provide in-depth information on various topics of interest to your audience. Improve the search experience and keep your visitors coming back for more!

  • Vertical searches increase page views by delivering more pertinent search results that recognize the end-user's intent. This can help increase your ad revenue by delivering more focused results.
  • We build vertical searches to leverage the Cost Per Action model to create alternate revenue models for your site. Contact us to learn how our vertical searches can help grow revenue on your portal.
