Ziggs.com Launches Online Search For Professionals
Ziggs announces the introduction of a new search platform for finding people in business online at http://www.ziggs.com. Providing the fastest-growing index of current professional profiles on the Web, Ziggs' innovative website enables users to search from a single source for people in business across more than 1 million professional profiles from nearly 16,000 companies.
Expected to double to 2 million profiles in the next 100 days, Ziggs delivers targeted online search for professionals and easy-to- use profile management tools for companies and individuals. Together, these services help people find and connect faster with the people they're searching for every day.
Every profile in the Ziggs Index is accurate, professional, and timely, enabling the searcher to successfully find the most current and concise information on the person they seek. Ziggs aggregates up-to-date, existing public profiles from current corporate websites, and then links the searcher directly to the profile on the corporate site. For corporations with existing online employee profiles at their corporate website, Ziggs helps them leverage this investment by driving prospect or client search traffic directly to their company-based profiles. For individuals without profiles on a corporate website, Ziggs links the searcher to a profile that can be quickly created and hosted at Ziggs. As a result, the searcher can trust the accuracy of the content of every profile found through http://www.ziggs.com.
"Searching on the Internet creates an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the people we do business with every day," said Tim DeMello, founder and chief executive officer of Ziggs. "Typically, the searcher is looking for a snapshot of concise information on the person in question, including where they work, how to contact them and maybe even a photo to put a face with the name. But name search results on major search engines primarily provide random links on a person, such as a news story or some other mention. So Ziggs set out to create a search platform that would enable people to take control of search results by presenting themselves online -- the way they want to be found -- through an accurate and professional online profile."
People can find the person they seek at http://www.ziggs.com by searching with a person's name, a company name, or through keyword search. Since Ziggs captures and stores the full text on each profile, it allows searching by 200 million keywords. For example, one can search for a "lawyer in Boston" or a "realtor in San Diego". Keyword search automatically presents all profiles that have these words or phrases in them. One can then sort and filter the results further by name, location or company.
In addition to offering a profile listing at http://www.ziggs.com, Ziggs also offers a popular Search Engine Placement Service that gives an individual profile visibility across the Internet. The Ziggs Search Engine Placement Service provides a sponsored link of your profile for top listing in search results for your name with all major search engines, including Google, Yahoo!, MSN, AOL, Ask Jeeves, and more. To provide insight into your online profile's Web traffic and activity, Ziggs has also created a profile manager service for every member. The Ziggs Profile Manager gives you easy-to-use online tools to manager your profile, enabling you to update your profile instantly, review reports on Web traffic to your profile, attach keyword search terms to your profile, and much more.
