GlobalSpec to add more powerful search engine

Published on .

Troy, N.Y.--Engineering Web site GlobalSpec is set to announce next Thursday a more powerful search engine on its site.

The revamped search engine will enhance access to what GlobalSpec calls “the Engineering Web,” defined as the areas of the Internet that focus solely on engineering-related information. The search engine will also provide a window to “the hidden Web,” finding paid content, for instance, which is not visible to most search engines.

“Extensive research of our online community, as well as our own engineering experiences, told us that engineers and technical professionals are frustrated with general search engines and having to wade through pages of irrelevant results," said John Schneiter, GlobalSpec president and co-founder. "We have built what they asked us for.”
