Mamma.com has announced the launch of a new search engine that I think will be of interest to readers of this blog. Health Search searches the Deep Web for articles from a variety of health sources, and then provides access to them in a format which is easy to read and navigate. Here is an excerpt from Mamma.com’s press release:
What makes Mamma.com’s Health Search different than any other search is that it’s taken all the effort out of the process. By crawling deep into the content of leading health and medical sites, and displaying the results in a highly intuitive, un-biased, comprehensive manner, Mamma saves consumers time and energy ��� eliminating the legwork for the user who typically has to visit many sites and click on numerous links before finding the right information. Mamma.com also provides the great benefit of a one-stop clickthrough feature that automatically brings users to the exact point on a page where the information the user is looking for can be found. Many search engines take users to the site’s home page, where the user has to yet again conduct another search for the information.
I think that the service has a lot of potential. Look at the results that came up for searches related to brain injury: Brain Injury Traumatic Brain Injury Acquired Brain Injury Child TBI Neuropsychology Chiari
