Yomtobian to Address Topic “Is There Life Beyond Google?”
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. – Social search engine Scour.com today announced that CEO Daniel Yomtobian will participate in a panel at the Search Engine Strategies Chicago conference. The panel will explore the topic “Is There Life Beyond Google?” The conference takes place December 8-11, 2008, at the Chicago Hilton.
Yomtobian will discuss the promise of human-powered, or social, search as a complement to Google’s primarily algorithmic search. The session is scheduled for Monday, December 8th, at 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
The panel will explore a variety of alternative and specialty search engines that provide innovative features and attributes not readily available on Google. The Web is overflowing with so much information that no single search engine can possibly find it all. While Google’s market share is dominant today, there is still tremendous opportunity for its competitors to grow.
Launched in July, Scour is a meta search engine, gathering results from Google, Yahoo! and MSN. People are rewarded with VISA gift cards for searching, voting and commenting on results. One point is awarded for each search, vote or comment. Accruing 6500 points translates into a $25 reward. Scour has paid out many users already.
