Press Release

Portal doubles memory capacity


Steel industry web portal invests in additional search engine capacity to satisfy customer demand

London, U.K. - October 7th 2002 Due to strong customer demand, web portal www.steelonthenet.com is pleased to announce that is has markedly increased the memory capacity of 'Ferrosearch', its steel industry-specific search engine service.

Whilst previously, several hundred thousand fully searchable steel industry terms from thousands of web sites were accessible from the www.steelonthenet.com search engine service, this capacity is now doubled to offer all steel industry professionals a leading one-stop-shop for quickly locating steel-related information on the net.

Commenting on the launch of the enhanced service, CEO Dr Andrew Kotas said 'This service builds further upon the free steel industry news service; and the free steel industry capacity, price, cost, import, export and exhibitions information already provided by our information portal'.

Reviewing the enhanced search engine service Martin Bailey, Technical Director of www.sheetmetalworld.com added 'This investment by www.steelonthenet.com not only further increases the breadth and depth of the site's searching capability. It also involves more regular weekly re-indexing of all pages to which the site is linked. But perhaps most importantly, the investment will give the www.steelonthenet.com team a much better understanding of the key words and terms that are of most interest to visitors. This should allow the site to even better optimise its rankings on the generalist search engines such as Google'.

Adds Kotas 'For free inclusion within the www.steelonthenet.com search engine listings, steel industry websites simply need to exchange links with us. Spidering of their sites by our robots is then automatic. This is a win-win arrangement for both sides'.
