Web-conference firm Webinar Success has launched a search facility for online webcasts. ‘WebEventSearch.com’ is a free online search engine listing webinars, webcasts, podcasts, and streaming web content.
The company says that unlike results returned by automated search engines such as Google, WebEventSearch.com filters and updates its listings to ensure that only current, available events are returned.
Unique search fields give users the ability to find events based on topic category, presenting companies, presenter names, event dates, keywords, and other event-specific details.
WebEventSearch.com serves a need that traditional search engines cannot fill, said Ken Molay, president of Webinar Success. WebEventSearch.com matches suppliers and consumers of webcast information to their mutual benefit.
Event providers list their webcast in the listings database with details that allow their target audience to find the event. Listings include upcoming one-time events offered at a specific day and time, and links to on-demand broadcasts that are available at any time. These may consist of recorded archives of past broadcasts, downloadable podcasts, or continuously streaming content such as internet radio or webcams.
Our research shows that webinars, podcasts, and audio/video webcasts are one of the most rapidly growing information sources worldwide, stated Larry Genkin, CEO of Larstan Business Reports. There is so much information being webcast that a facility like WebEventSearch.com is necessary to find just the events that individual business professionals or consumers need.
Access to the event database for searches is free and requires no registration or login. Users can subscribe to RSS feeds that keep them automatically notified of new events as they are added, either globally across all categories or narrowed to a specific area of interest. Event producers can add new events to the database at any time through a self-service interface. The site is available for immediate access.
