We released a number of changes on Compete.com today – the most noteworthy of which were focused on Compete Search. Although Compete never intends to take on Google, we do have access to useful information to help augment and improve people’s search experience.
Highlighted Compete Search Enhancements:
More results: We overhauled the backend to provide more results, faster"¦
SnapShot Previews: Many people use Search as a navigation tool and enter in full domains. To help them learn more about their desired site, users will now find a SnapShot preview of the requested domain in the upper right corner of the results page.
Compete Picks: We have made Compete Picks even more relevant. If you conduct a search and Compete Picks appear it means other Compete users spent considerably more time of the destination site compared to other results, an indication they found the site helpful.
Take a few minutes to check out the new features.
