Looksmart is turning itself into an About.com style portal, launching 161 vertical search sites in 12 categories including automotive, cities, food, health, home, sports and travel. Unlike About, Lookmart's vertical sites are not put together by human editors, but are assembled using technology.

The company continues to run its paid search and contextual advertising network.
