I’m proud to talk about the latest TheWebMiner tool, called TWM Filter(still in Beta, but worthy of your attention), which has the courageous task of changing how marketers use search engines.

It addresses marketers throughout the companies and it all started with those interminable Google searches in which we can reach a certain level of madness and hope, that makes us search in the 10th page of results. Is interesting to observe also how little search engines have changed (in terms of functionality and addressed segments) since the 90’s, having added only a few specific options for a few specific generic types of websites.

The challenge though is to understand the content of a website in terms of what is it for, why would I enter this certain website and most important to have search engines that understand this too. This way, by filtering through companies, blogs, shops or social media websites we can make a better use of our search results and therefore add value to our internet searches.

Of course it’s difficult to sort through millions of addresses and decide which are what, and nobody said it’s easy, most of the time because of the incertitude of a website’s purpose, but TheWebMiner algorithms managed to successfully organize that. By using our tool, that specifically focuses on the companies’ research needs, we aim to deliver an improvement of the quality of results by adding more structured search criterions (like tags) for a better understanding of the web.

Another important challenge with such a tool, as with any search engine is the indexing part. By now we indexed more than 800K websites but this value will grow much more in the near future.

This having been said the only thing left is for you to convince yourself of its functionality and try it on our website!
