Dogpile's New Enhancements

Dogpile has launched significant enhancements to its metasearch platform. Dogpile's new IntelliFind technology utilizes sophisticated query intelligence to assess the likely intent behind every entered query, enabling Dogpile to return more relevant results from a wider array of content sources.

IntelliFind builds on Dogpile metasearch's unique ability to search more of the Web by analyzing the likely intent behind every query and intelligently searching the sources most likely to return the best results. By limiting the sources queried to those most likely to contain the best-matched content, Dogpile now returns an even higher concentration of more accurate results to end users.

IntelliFind also extends Dogpile metasearch beyond leading engines such as Google, Yahoo! and AskJeeves to pull relevant results from a variety of vertical content sources such as white pages, news, audio, video and images. Results from these content sources are reported at the top of results pages, above the Web search results, for easy access. Building on this functionality, Dogpile also today announced new vertical content partnerships with Topix.net and Singingfish.

"Today's release results from more than a year of hard work to refine our metasearch platform. Users will find significant improvements in the relevancy of our results, along with rich new sources of content," said Melissa Turtel, senior product manager for Dogpile. "IntelliFind lays the foundation for a steady stream of useful, new features that will appear on Dogpile over the coming months."

Dogpile IntelliFind is highly responsive to rapid shifts in current events and pop culture that can influence the likely intent behind individual query terms. For example, when an eruption at Mount St. Helens occurs, the intent of users entering the term "volcano" can change suddenly. Additionally, the intent behind queries that contain the word "tree" can vary sharply in the summertime and over the holidays. IntelliFind is designed to keep pace with these developments so that users can quickly locate highly useful results year-round.

Throughout 2005, Dogpile will continue to add a variety of content sources not previously available through Web search engines. These include specialized information on specific product categories, yellow pages content, movies, entertainment and more.
