Retrevo launched new features for buyers

November 26, 2006

Remember Retrevo, the vertical search for electronic goods? As announced on their blog, they’ve just launched an important upgrade that target buyers. When you launch a query on a generic term (“digital camera“, “camcorder“), the first results are buying guides. When you launch a query on specific products (“sony bravia“), results are classified using the new “shop” and “daily deals” sections.

This is a logical move from Retrevo, and the way it is implemented is quite good: they didn’t try to build their own comparison engine, but really on their search solution and their own algorithms to display results from shopping engines and merchants.
