fisssh! Challenging the Way We Search the Web and How We Consume Search Results

With a new search service called fisssh!, HGi Media Systems is attempting to enhance and expand the ways in which web users search for information and use search results in the new 2.0 era.

Cardiff, United Kingdom, March 29, 2007 --( fisssh! is a new type of multi-search service, where aggregated search results for queries are displayed in a more ‘editorial’ format across different search ranges (web, news, blogs, videos, podcasts, info, jobs, social and shop).  The concept behind the aggregation of results from major web services and a unique style of presentation is to provide users with rich, diverse and exciting search result pages that are relevant and accurate whilst providing just a little serendipity for discovering new and interesting things.

Get Closer, Go Deeper…

With the web containing so much new and ever changing information, the ‘rest of us’ are still trying to catch up with the ‘2.0’ phenomenon.  fisssh! has been developed to assist this by providing users with a multi-dimensional search experience that taps into established sources along with the newer dynamic information that is being generated via blogging, social networks, wikis and ‘Q&A’ services.  

“One of the primary goals is to enable users to 'get closer' and 'go deeper' by connecting them to the information and the users and groups that surround it,” states Craig Hughes, the creator of fisssh!

Users of fisssh! enjoy search result pages that are made up of ‘blocks’ of information that can be quickly scanned or gently perused to pick out important results.  Each block contains search results from a particular web service that is suited to the search range and features the option to subscribe to the results via RSS.  The web services that power the search ranges are carefully selected to ensure the fisssh! search experience is fresh, fun and relevant.
