Nice to see that specialized search tools (verticals) are getting some press attention again. Very often these resources can provide a better result with less aggravation for the searcher.

Vertical search heats up

Industry watchers say these specialty engines, provided by companies such as Bitpipe, Business.com, GlobalSpec, IndustryBrains and KnowledgeStorm, are part of the natural evolution of the search industry. They point out that as the volume of content on the Web continues to expand, users may be drawn to vertical search sites because they promise to do a better job of sifting through and finding information efficiently and quickly. This in turn should attract advertisers.
