More Sources at, Advanced Search Too!, the web-based news aggregator and search tool (thousand of RSS feeds too!), has just announced an increase to the total number of sources the service provides access to.

The home page now mentons that they crawl more than 9,000 sources, up from 7,000.

Topix has also moved their search box to the top of the each page. You’ll also see a more prominently displayed link to the Advanced Search page. Here you’re able to limit your search by:
+ Source
+ Zip Code or City
+ Category
+ County
+ Publication Date
Let’s hope more options are coming.

I’m happy to see that Rich Skrenta and his team are constantly improving an already first-rate service that I use many times each day. Topix is also an excellent example of some of the great work small companies are doing in the search business.

Chris mentioned a couple of days ago that Dogpile has now partnered with Topix. This is yet another addition to a rapidly growing list of partnerships. At the beginning of the month I blogged about new deals that has announced with Citysearch, Yahoo,, and Ask Jeeves.
