In an effort to position itself as the leader in vertical search, LookSmart has announced the launch of 161 new vertical search sites in a variety of categories.
In total, LookSmart’s 181 vertical sites fall under the following 13 categories: Auto, Music, Education, Food, Home Living, Money, Health, Cities, Sports, Recreation, Travel, Tech and Games, and Style. LookSmart aims to provide consumers with essential information for passions, needs and repetitive tasks encountered in everyday life.
I have to admit that at first glance, the link tunneling used to narrow down each vertical, appears to work very well. After tunneling thru “Auto” to “Luxury Autos” to “Acura RL“, I was presented with relevant results and some neat refining options.
Could this be the model LookSmart has been searching for? (pardon the pun).
