Online discussion company RemarQ Communities Inc. Monday partnered with comparison shopping site mySimon Inc. and added a variety of search services to make navigation through its forums easier for its users.
mySimon offers information on more than 10 million products at 1,600 merchants in categories such as computers, books & music, electronics, flowers, sporting goods and toys. Its alliance with RemarQ enables users of its 32,000 discussions to use mySimon's comparison shopping services linked directly from specific forums to related mySimon categories.
The company also unveiled new search, ranking and tracking capabilities to allow users to research potential purchases more productively. The company promises more relevant search results and a ranking system that rates discussions according to usefulness. Readers can now also track discussions based on a specific keyword, the firm said.
The new services are part of RemarQ's strategy to integrate e-commerce into its site, said Bill Lee, CEO of RemarQ.
