Quintura Site Search Upgraded
Quintura (www.affiliates.quintura.com) announced the debut of several new features of Quintura Site Search that are designed to maximize user experience and performance and to enhance back-end analytics for publishing affiliates. Quintura Site Search, which officially launched in the U.S. market in October, offers web publishers a patented site search platform with visual search and navigation based on neural networks for users and, coming soon, a "unique monetization model for digital publishers." Quintura Site Search is free for web publishers through an advertising revenue sharing agreement; it is also available on a subscription basis.
Quintura features a Search Cloud, a dynamic cloud of related search terms or tags to easily refine or narrow down a search query. The Quintura’s Site Search solution has been enhanced with new tools to better serve online web publishers. The new features include the following:
- Search Cloud in Adobe Flash—The Quintura search cloud has been enhanced with the Flash technology to create a more dynamic user interaction.
- Search Cloud Customization—Web publishers can now customize the Quintura search cloud on their sites, utilizing new layout options and the ability to prepopulate the search cloud with desired search terms or content.
- Improved Analytics—Quintura is the only site search platform that offers real-time analytics for online editors, including queries, volume of results, term rankings, and clickthroughs. This data can now be further sorted using a term or date filter and can also be displayed graphically.

Funded by Mangrove Capital Partners, Quintura works with web publishers and online content owners to provide an easier and more relevant in-site search experience.
