FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


POWERFUL SEARCH ENGINE TECHNOLOGY UNLOCKS
UNIVERSITY AND ACADEMIC WEB SITES

SearchEdu.com index, over 20 million pages in size, covers exclusively
education related web sites

KIRKLAND, Wash. - January 14, 2000 - MaxBot.com today announced the launch of SearchEdu.com, a new Internet search engine devoted to university and education related web sites. SearchEdu.com applies powerful new search engine technology, including better results ranking and page caching, to an extensive index of over 20 million pages of academic materials from universities, schools, and libraries.

"Until now, the valuable academic and research materials available in the .EDU domain have been difficult to reach," said company CEO Troy Beckstrom. "SearchEdu.com makes these pages much more accessible."

POPULARITY RANKING RETURNS THE BEST PAGES FIRST
Advanced web page ranking technology puts the quality web pages at your fingertips by listing the most popular results first. This is especially important for queries that return thousands of hits, because it keeps the good hits from getting buried. SearchEdu.com actually thrives on a large number of hits, because the more hits it finds, the larger selection it has from which to improve the top results. The first page of results is like a custom top ten list.

EXCERPTS OF EACH HIT SHOWN IN CONTEXT
For each hit, the results include excerpts from the target page showing all the search words in context. This makes it easy to see whether each hit matches the query for the right reasons, without having to visit each one.

TRIUMPH OVER BROKEN LINKS
SearchEdu.com eliminates the frustration of broken links and unavailable web servers by saving a copy of every page it indexes. A cached copy is always available for each search result, so even if a web page's server is down, SearchEdu.com can display it for you. This eliminates the common frustration of finding the perfect page you've been searching for, only to be stopped by a broken link.

THE PERFECT RESEARCH TOOL
SearchEdu.com also provides convenient access to other reference tools, including dictionaries, thesauri, encyclopedias, and biographies, directly from the home page. It's the perfect starting point for school reports and term papers. Because the search engine is limited to educational materials, it creates a safe and focused environment for online research, which parents and teachers will appreciate.
