Combo Search™

Current-day keyword search engines function by efficiently finding and displaying URLs that contain references to specific keywords. While this is the best one can do for web pages that contain no structure whatsoever, one can do a lot better for web-sites that do have internal structure that can be extracted through software.

Combo Search does not replace traditional search engines. Rather, Combo Search complements traditional keyword search functionality by providing the following powerful, new features.

Viewing Web Pages as Tables

Ability to view valuable data from various web pages not as buckets of text but as tables. Tables provide an intuitive way for average consumers to understand semi-structured data. Combo Search allows any web page that has some extractable underlying structure to be viewed as a set of tables by the consumer.

Searching by Correlating Tables

Combo Search enables consumers to conduct searches where they can combine data from many different web pages into a single search. Note that a traditional search engine cannot do this in any meaningful way. Combo Search can compare and inter-relate information from several different web pages.

Results Displayed As Tables

Combo Search displays results as tables, allowing consumers to render decisions faster and more conveniently. Tables are easy to rapidly slice and dice, and connect to other tables as needed. Combo Search enables consumers to integrate data from many different web pages, and view correlated results in a table.

Making Search Queries Easy to Use

Consumers can use Combo Search without learning the query language by using the option to deploy this technology as an enhancement to keyword search at any website. Combo Searches can be defined, saved, and published as reusable pieces of knowledge.
