Here's a search tool we haven't heard much from in recent years...
If you're wondering what Business.com has been up to, Susan Kuchinskas at InternetNews.com offers up an interview with Jake Winebaum, CEO of of the company.
Its directory now contains 26 major industry categories and more than 400,000 listings within 25,000 sub-categories. Although the glamour is gone, the site boasts 12 million unique visitors a month and has carved out a niche providing its targeted search to online business publications.
Q: Business.com launched in 2000, but there seemed to be a two-year hiatus between 2002 and 2004. Is that the case?
A: We've been in stealth mode for a while. We learned a lesson: Deeds, not words. We built this thing out, kept it under the radar screen. Now, so much attention is being given to specialized search, we've been raising our hands.
Btw, Business.com just announced a new round of funding.
