Syd's Eastside Auto Parts, Used Cars & Rebuilders has started a custom Google Search facility for the automotive industry. This search engine only offers results from automotive related websites and directories. As it is a colaborative engine, others may join the search engine to add their own URLs. Plus, it is powered by Google's search technology.
Automotive Search also has a homepage on Google at:
That's quite a URL to remember, so it seems pretty obvious that if you don't add this customized search engine to a website or a blog, you pretty much won't see it and it won't get used. Therefore, we will be exploring our options as to how we will employ it. We may just devote an automotive website to this search engine. Or we may just devote a webpage to it on our current website.
However, that URL is important to us, as that is where someone could apply to help manage the Automotive Search engine. Managers can add their own automotive related website URLs to the search engine, as well.
Currently (at this writing), Automotive Search pulls results from 59 different websites and directories. These are real websites with real related content or associated real directory listings that came right out of our on-site automotive links directory. Many have been our link exchange partners, and hopefully this will offer our partners a little reward for linking a non-spammy website with us.
We are, of course, hoping that others will come along and join us to make this search engine even bigger and better, so that it will become a real resource for English language speaking automotive industry and enthusiasts in the USA.
We do know that we will not be allowing websites which simply show Google AdWords or Yahoo! Publisher ad blocks in order to create revenue for the webmaster who isn't helping anyone out with anything. This is exactly why we have started this search engine, anytime you search in Google or Yahoo!, it seems that your results are plagued with "scraper sites" that scrape a little Pay Per Click (PPC) revenue from the advertiser, and are otherwise totally useless. By limiting our search engine to only offering results from what we know to be real and relevant automotive industry resource and information websites, we hope to offer a great resource for the automotive industry, professionals and enthusiasts, alike.
