Yeah, either way that feature doesn't excite me much either. There are so many 
tools and cool things that you can do with google that they are fighting a 
losing battle.  I find it a bit funny that a search engine trying to call 
itself a google killer could announce a big launch and then have such poor 
performance.  This invariably as Mark states is going to turn everyone off to 
it right off the bat and I suspect it will not last the year.  that and the 
fact that it is a hard word to remember make me think that it won't last.

I tried this supertargeting thing, wow - err sorry - pooh, makes no difference 
to the searches I was trying IMHO L  


Maybe someone else has better luck with it, guess I'll stick with Google for 
now J but will keep a keen eye on accoona to see how the results fair with

            How to Supertarget(tm) 


Accoona gives you the ability to use Artificial Intelligence technology to 
"SuperTarget"(tm) your searches. "SuperTarget"(tm) is the term used by Accoona 
to describe the search features that enable searchers to highlight specific 
terms within the search query. 



The ability to "SuperTarget"(tm) a search is valuable to all Internet users who 
want to be able to focus their search to individual words within a query. This 
technology allows users to efficiently find their way through the billions of 
pages published on the Internet. 

How "SuperTargeting"(tm) Works 


"SuperTargeting"(tm) depends on sophisticated Artificial Intelligence 
technology but Accoona makes this feature easy to use. Accoona adds another 
step in which you see the words you typed in your search query appear 
separately with a box next to each one. All you have to do is put a check into 
the box that contains the most important word or words in the phrase. 




For example, let's assume the search term you are using is "Discount Diamond 
Jewelry." If you are most interested in paying a low price you would put a 
check in the "discount" box. If more than one term is more important you can 
check additional boxes. Providing this additional search information takes only 
seconds as it provides Accoona Artificial Intelligence technology the 
information to find more relevant results for you.
