A powerful, new search engine just appeared
There is a new and powerful search engine that just appeared on the Internet. What makes this one unique is apart from being able to make a query in the search box like Google and all the others, you can also do a search by
Global Business Listing is a new search engine designed specifically for business people on the go. It is still in its infancy, but in the eyes of many, represents a lot of potential. Will it become the next Google or Yahoo? Well, it's still early to make such a claim, but the people at Global Business Listing are working as hard as they can to make it happen.
Global Business Listing is an initiative of the General Center for Internet Services Inc. (GCIS), one of Canada's oldest and largest Internet application developer and professional search engine optimization company. GCIS retains full ownership of the new search engine.
Global Business Listing is completely free to use by anybody and is a PFI (Pay for Inclusion) search engine & directory. Its submission fee is priced at $ 269.00 US, thus $ 30.00 less than Yahoo's submission fee. Additionally, listed companies also get a sign-up bonus. Global Business Listing has successfully secured a 10-year agreement with Sun Hosting, effectively giving all companies listed in the new directory a 10% savings on all their web hosting fees.
And that's not all. Each company gets its own personalized page, complete with its own logo and all its important corporate information. Text is also included for its main products and services. Additionally, every page is optimized for its main keywords and key phrases, which should help it as far as Page Rank is concerned. Some observers in the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) field have commented that the way Global Business Listing does it for its members, it may help their web sites achieve better rankings in Google and most of the other major search engines. Time will tell, but we did look at the code and it does make sense. One note of importance: the new search engine was completely designed and programmed using exclusively the HTML language.
However, we must agree with the way it is being done. Companies listed in the new engine do get better visibility. In the next Google update, it will be interesting to see the new results coming out of the freshly crawled update.
So far, about 200 companies, mostly from the US have already signed up and are listed in the new search engine.
