Euroseek Inks Six Content Agreements

[London, ENGLAND] Swedish Internet company Euroseek announced Tuesday six new collaboration agreements to expand its European portals.

The agreements, all of which are for additional content, are with Global Market Insite (online market surveys), Technology Evaluation (IT news), Europages (company directories), EuroBusiness Link (Swedish business directory), Bestwin (competitions), and Jobline (recruitment).

Euroseek, which started as a search engine in 1996, is enjoying a dynamic maturity, having posted a 43 percent increase in its number of visitors since April this year.

Earlier this month Euroseek appointed a new chairman, the position going to Dr. Marcel Erni, Managing Partner of Partners Group AG, one of Euroseek's main shareholders.

Euroseek now employs around 100 people and makes its portals available throughout Europe in 39 languages.

"We are on our way to becoming a company that has all the prerequisites of being Europe's leading Internet portal and access supplier," said Catherine Sahlgren, managing director of Euroseek.

Sahlgren said the addition of so many new partners was because Euroseek had diversified the content in its portals.

More content, more services, more visitors is a policy that appears to be working well for the company which also operates the Swedish Tjohoo portal, weather service HALO and public information register Eurolocal.

According to Sahlgren, Euroseek will soon be seeking more than just content partners. Its future plans include a number of European acquisitions aimed at reinforcing its portal and access operations at a local level.
