PR9.NET November 17, 2006 - London, UK - The London Stock Exchange (LSE) the UK's primary exchange (http://www.londonstockexchange.com) has become the latest well-known institution to sign a search deal with Web search company InfoSpace Europe (http://www.infospacesearch.co.uk).
The two-year agreement sees The London Stock Exchange implement web search for the first time across its co.uk and com URLs. The web search will be powered by the InfoSpace Europe private labelled service which combines the best results from all the major search engines through InfoSpace's unique metasearch technology.
The London Stock Exchange can now enable its website users to search all the main engines simultaneously, including Ask.com, Google, MSN, Yahoo! and more from within their sites. This will ensure that more of their user requirements and expectations are met, thereby improving site loyalty and usage.
InfoSpace's metasearch technology which powers many of its private label search products such as the search box and search toolbar has established the company as a key player in the web search market.
"The appointment by the London Stock Exchange demonstrates the commitment by well-established organisations to offer superior web search as part of their efforts to provide a comprehensive online experience for their audience," explains Dominic Trigg, vice president at InfoSpace Europe.
"This is the first heavy weight signing in the financial sector for InfoSpace and another highly reputable and well known brand. Their sites are the first port of call for financial information and services for professionals. We therefore welcome their decision to augment their offering with our powerful web search product," adds John Thornhill, business development director at InfoSpace Europe.
