InfoSpace, developer of proprietary metasearch technologies, announced a partnership with blinkx, a video search engine, to offer video search capabilities for InfoSpace’s family of metasearch brands including Dogpile.com, the search engine which returns top results from Google, Yahoo!, Windows Live and Ask.com to provide users with the most relevant and useful information. As consumer demand for online video content continues to grow, the partnership allows InfoSpace to offer users the same breadth and relevancy of video search results as it does with text-based Web search results.
“Video search has become increasingly popular among today’s Web searchers and this addition allows us to offer Dogpile users a more visual and interactive search experience,” said Brian McManus, executive vice president of the online business unit at InfoSpace. “blinkx is a leader in the video search space and we chose them to power our offering because of their extensive video content library and advanced video search technology. blinkx also provides results from a variety of video aggregators such as Brightcove, which makes this partnership a great fit for Dogpile, as the leading metasearch site in the U.S.”
