Exalead Adds Video Search Application; Continues to Diversify Ability to Crawl

Exalead, a global provider of search software for business and the internet, has recently added a new video search application for its exalead one:search platform. Now users of Exalead’s search engine, www.exalead.com, can access millions of video clips indexed from popular online video portals, including YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacare, Vodeo, Kewego and IFILM Web sites.

Exalead makes searching for the video that best fits a user’s criteria easier by integrating various categories, such as sports, music, film and entertainment, across multiple platforms, users can uniformly search for any given item in any category in only one click.

Navigating the video search results is simple, thanks to Exalead’s patented Search by Serendipity(R) navigation system, which lets users quickly narrow or broaden a search by clicking on an automatically generated list of related terms or by choosing to search within results by a more specific keyword.

For instance, all videos are indexed using classification information including author, title, date, description, duration, tags and categories, which allows users to sort results by relevance, ratings or number and frequency of views.

Other video search functions include:

— Video Length: Filter search results by average, short or long to find the right video quickly;

— Video Source: Sort results by a video’s source (Web site); and,

— Video Keywords: Refine results using a “cloud” of keywords that synthesizes the tags and categories of the videos.

Each search result listing includes a thumbnail image of the video, title, summary description and details such as author, duration, upload date and a viewer score represented by stars. Placing a cursor over the stars reveals more details about the score, while selecting the detailed view provides instant access to related videos by associated tags and categories.

Founded in 2000 by search-engine pioneers, Exalead is a global provider of search software for business and the Web. Based on the first and only unified search technology platform for desktop, intranet or Web search, Exalead’s products provide users with a single access point to information, regardless of format or location.
