REDMOND, Wash., March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, AOL shut down DMOZ.com, the official homepage of the DMOZ Internet Directory. However, the directory was quickly re-launched at DMOZLive.com. The new site represents the final iteration of the human-curated Internet directory and includes the same powerful browsing and searching tools. The DMOZLive.com version of the directory is made available through a Creative Commons Attribution license from the DMOZ organization.

"While automated search engines have become standard, we believe there's still value in human curation, as evidenced by site traffic data," says DMOZLive.com Founder Douglas Olson. "Humans are still better at understanding the content, motive and quality of web pages, and organization that information in a comprehensible way. It's worth noting that the search engine titans like Bing and Google continue to employ humans to test their automated systems, so even they recognize this fact.

Moreover, DMOZ is an important piece of Internet history, as its roots go all the way back to 1998. We felt it was important to preserve this resource and the countless hours of mostly volunteer work it represents."

The official DMOZ site, which was owned and operated by AOL, helped millions of Internet users make sense of the web and discover practical resources that may otherwise have gone unknown. A small army of volunteer editors worked to maintain the directory, which received several million page views each week. AOL has not commented on its closure of the site, and only provided two weeks notice prior to closure.

 

DMOZLive.com is now home to the only remaining full-featured version of the DMOZ Internet Directory, which comprises over 3.5 million sites across 800,000 categories. Typical categories range from business, computers, games and the arts to news and shopping. Within each top-level category are numerous subcategories, many of which have subcategories of their own, and so on. The result is a hierarchy of relevant content moving from the general to the specific in a way that feels natural to human users. This structure has been largely unchanged since the directory's creation in 1998.

As a global project, the directory includes regional content in 91 languages. Pages in Arabic and Hebrew are formatted with the appropriate right-to-left text. Users can search the full text of directory categories as well as individual site descriptions in any of the 91 available languages. The current version of the DMOZ Internet Directory also boasts a clean, modern interface that makes for easy navigation.

Easily the most unique and powerful feature of DMOZLive.com is the ability to execute a wide range of custom searches. Above each list of categorized web sites, a custom search bar encourages users to "search the below sites." With this feature, users are assured that a specific, targeted search will not return the flood of generalized and often irrelevant results typical of broader search engines. Mining the web's information to uncover knowledge has always been a challenge, but DMOZLive.com has been designed to make the task a little easier.

"Finally, we want to express our sincere thanks to the dedicated DMOZ editors around the world who have helped keep the Open Directory Project moving forward," added Olson. "DMOZ has always represented the very best of the web and of the human spirit of discovery, cooperation and sharing. We're proud to continue making the final version of the DMOZ Internet Directory available for as long as possible."

The deal is aimed at boosting mobile search volume and share for the Bing network.

Microsoft has struck a syndication deal with CBS Interactive for the Bing search network.

The partnership makes Bing Ads the exclusive search provider for some CBS Interactive sites, including Findarticles.com, Searchnow.com, Store.com, and ZDsearch.com. Bing will also provide search solutions for properties like CNET.com, MySimon.com and Search.com. The deal includes traffic from all devices in Canada, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom and United States.

With 70 percent of search volume on the CBS Interactive portfolio coming from mobile devices, syndication could give Bing a bit of a stronger mobile story. Bing currently has less than 3 percent mobile market share in the US — well below Google’s more than 91 percent and behind Yahoo’s 5 percent share — according to Statista. CBS Interactive claims more than 300 monthly visitors across its sites.

“CBS Interactive will help us bring additional scale and opportunity to advertisers and marketers as we continue our mission to connect customers with publishers and audiences in ways that will maximize ROI for their marketing campaigns,” said Steve Sirich, General Manager of Bing Ads Marketing at Microsoft, in a statement.

“Partnering with Bing allows us to provide an enhanced search experience to deliver quality results and incremental value to both users and marketers alike,” said Shane McGilloway, Senior Vice President of Strategy & Development at CBS Interactive. “The Bing Network team delivers valuable insights, business intelligence and an enhanced platform for paid search advertising.”

 

Over the past two years, syndication deals have been a key focus for growing Bing market share. Bing has entered into deals with AOL, Yahoo, The Wall Street Journal, Apple’s Siri and Spotlight search, and Amazon Fire, among others.

 We knew this was coming, AOL Search is now powered by Bing. Bing confirmed this saying

"as of Jan. 1, Bing powers AOL's web, mobile, and tablet search, providing paid search ads and algorithmic organic search results to AOL's properties worldwide."

You can see it by going to AOL search and looking at the footer. The powered by Bing disclaimer is placed there:

Bing wrote:

Our partnership with AOL brings additional scale and opportunity to advertisers and marketers. Today, 1 in 5 searches happen on Bing.com, and by providing Bing search results for the number 3 (Yahoo) and 5 (AOL) search providers in the US, Bing powers close to one-third of US PC web searches.1 Today’s announcement is testament to Microsoft’s ongoing focus on search and search advertising and our increasing scale that connects a marketer’s media buys to new publishers and audiences to help them achieve more impact for their business.

 

AOL doesn't have that much marketshare but this is 100% a big win for Bing over Google.
