Rocketinfo Launches New Version of News Search Engine

Rocketinfo, Inc. (, a provider of news monitoring, analysis, and search technologies, announced the release of a new version of its flagship online news search engine and portal, Rocketnews offers easy to configure, user-defined feeds from a database of more than 60,000 sources. The relaunch of Rocketnews is the first in a series of new product releases Rocketinfo has planned.

Rocketnews originally launched more than a decade ago as one of the web’s first news search engines and aggregation portals. In addition to performing searches for current news stories and browsing major news categories, visitors to Rocketnews will now experience a number of technology enhancements and feature additions.

Rocketinfo’s "contextual search" is easier for the user to define and has faster response times, while delivering more relevant information and context. Thousands of news sources have been added to the Rocketnews database.

Rocketnews introduced the Topic Discovery Engine, which expands a contextual search to include blog posts, photos, video clips, and research data besides updated and historical news. The Topic Discovery Engine examines all 60,000 news sources. It collects, analyzes, and categorizes news stories and then updates category pages, topic pages, and related RSS feeds. Topic pages, a new feature at Rocketnews, highlight popular news topics by displaying related news stories, blog posts, photos, and noteworthy quotes.
