Topix.net announced a deal with InfoSpace to add Topix.net's news headlines to InfoSpace's Dogpile metasearch service, and also to help Dogpile's new IntelliFind technology determine when news content is likely to be relevant to users' Web search queries.

Through this agreement, Topix.net alerts Dogpile to breaking news stories, helping Dogpile respond immediately to users searching for information on the latest news events. Topix.net helps Dogpile provide content that is highly flexible and responsive to rapid shifts in current events. As a result, users can get quick access to the most up-to-date information available.

"One of the key user benefits of our new IntelliFind technology is its ability to augment our Web results with relevant vertical content sources such as news," said Melissa Turtel, senior product manager for Dogpile. "Topix.net's relevant local and breaking news helps Dogpile's IntelliFind technology assess when a user is searching for information on current events and return the latest results from a wide array of leading sources."

Topix.net aggregates news headlines from over 8,000 sources, including newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations. InfoSpace is the first partner to leverage Topix.net's advanced search functionality, rolling it out first on its Dogpile metasearch service.

"We're excited about helping Dogpile to better understand the intent behind users' queries and getting breaking news to Dogpile's users via Topix.net," said Mike Markson, vice president of business development at Topix.net. "Our partnership also marks a rollout of a new set of services for us, which showcases Topix.net's ability to provide customized services for our partners."
