New York, NY (WiredPRNews.com) According to industry sources, as early as April 15, 2011 business-search leader Masterseek is set to announce the launch of their new MasterProduct Index, said to be the world’s largest index of products and suppliers. Masterseek is a rapidly-growing “super-search” platform and network, with a reach already extending to include 83 million company profiles worldwide, and expected to reach 86 million by year’s end.
The enhanced capability provided through the MasterProduct Index will complement Masterseek.com’s already-formidable arsenal of business-search tools and treasure trove of fat databases, and enable users and subscribers to search for and quickly find the most-relevant products to meet their queries.
The new MasterProduct Index will initially feature detailed data on more than 18 million products, and contain in-depth information including regarding trademarks and brands. According to Masterseek executives, their proprietary search algorithms already intelligently seek out and update business information across the entire Masterseek platform, ensuring that subscribers and users will achieve the same quick, relevant results for specific product-searches as for other corporate information now sought through the platform.
The enhanced content available through the MasterProduct Index will consist of product pages containing detailed product descriptions and background information valuable to consumers and researchers alike. Product pages will automatically retrieve and update information and news from credible inputs such as Wikipedia, top popular media and newspapers, and direct sources such as related Tweets.
Most importantly, in a world still quite dependent upon bricks-and-mortar commerce to sell physical products which cannot be delivered online, Masterseek’s MasterProduct Index will allow product searchers to focus their searches geographically with pinpoint accuracy, saving time and money—Searchers can quickly find product suppliers filtered according to country, region and city.
This announcement about the MasterProduct Index follows the recent release (March 25th, 2011) of Masterseek’s Beta Version of their classic business-search engine, to an enthusiastic reception by dedicated business searchers who swear by the speed and relevance of its search results. The Beta Version allows subscribers full editorial control over profiles and nearby advertising, and it also allows businesses of any size to create landing pages for their businesses, including embedded video.
And, the Beta Version also expedites the sharing and distribution of information about businesses, across platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Google and Wikipedia. Best of all, Masterseek works with mobile devices such as iPad and iPhone and through browser plugins for Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Masterseek’s new MasterProduct Index seems the next logical step on their pathway toward a seamless global business-and-consumer-networking platform. Search professionals and information technology observers are keeping an eye on Masterseek, watching for the next advance.
