SEMISEEK was formed during 1999 by a group of Internet and Semiconductor professionals determined to develop a new type of search engine that could serve the Semiconductor Industry. Designed for ease of use and focused on the Semiconductor Industry, Semiseek's objective is to cut through the clutter of the Internet and allow Semiconductor Professionals to find the services and products they want quickly and efficiently.
SEMISEEK has over 500 Semiconductor Industry Categories with over 2500 links to Semiconductor Companies Websites. Our category structure is designed with terminology familiar to Semiconductor Industry Professionals. Semiseek only list the exact URL of a company's website, eliminating the clutter of thousands of unrelated documents appearing in the search results. With over 40 years of Semiconductor Industry experience our staff can increase the probability that your website will be discovered, connecting your Technologies, Products, and Services to the end users who are looking for them.
SEMISEEK is a Search Engine, not a website. As a Search Engine, Semiseek influences other major search engines such as Yahoo, Goto, Infoseek, Lycos, AltaVista, and many more. These search engines index information from Semiseek's directory, leading Semiconductor Industry searches into Semiseek. Approximately 35% of Semiseek's traffic comes from keyword searches on the Internet's major search engines. In addition Semiseek's aggressive promotional strategy allows Semiseek to appear high in the search results of all these major search engines through the most frequently used keywords of the Semiconductor Industry. A recent list of frequently searched Keywords and Phrases is included in Semiseek's media kit.
SEMISEEK continues to add new features. As we move into the year 2000, we have added a feature rich Internet based e-mail service to qualified Semiconductor Professionals at no charge to our visitors. We have an Employment section that allows our visitors easy access to the employment pages of our website directory. Several new sites are currently being designed for launch early in the year 2000, as we continue to expand our services.
