ABSTRACT
This article discusses the opinion of the editor on Zibb, a new search feature on the Web site of EDN magazine. The parent company of the magazine, Reed Business Information, developed the new feature, a search engine that aims to provide contextually correct searches and promises to save users time by returning only relevant search results. EDN and Reed Business appreciate Google and the traffic it brings them. In fact, Reed Business has partnered with Google on several initiatives. EDN and Reed Business rely on the Zibb technology both to greatly improve their site search and to provide contextually correct, broader industry search.
