HotBot Adds Directory
From The Search Engine Report
March 3, 1998
HotBot has followed on AltaVista's lead last month and partnered with LookSmart to offer a browsable directory of web sites. LookSmart lists about 300,000 web sites in over 17,000 categories.
The directory maintains HotBot's branding, while still providing the same results reachable via the main LookSmart service. Users can take advantage of the service by clicking on any of the links below "Browse By Subject" on the HotBot home page.
"Enhancing HotBot with the Web's most comprehensive directory from LookSmart provides HotBot users another way to locate the information they seek. This new improvement reinforces HotBot's position as the Internet's pre-eminent search site," said Hunter Madsen, senior vice president for marketing at Wired Digital, which runs HotBot.
