Another Entry in the Site Ranking Field

ScoreCard Inc., of Rockville, MD-based launched ScoreCheck, an automated agent that
analyzes Web site rankings on 15 major Internet search engines.

This service “will be an important tool for companies and advertisers on the
Web that need information on search engine rankings to develop marking
strategies,” the company said.

“ScoreCheck is a revolutionary way of tackling an old problem,” said Teresa
Kelchner, marketing director of ScoreCard. “Information on the effectiveness
of marketing drives and popularity of Web sites while also making sure Web
investments are recouped has been always desired. Now you can find out
this information painlessly using Scorecheck.”

ScoreCheck allows users to check out 15 major search engines and
indexes at once to see how the top four Web sites rank. Users enter
keywords and URLs which ScoredCheck analyzes and then reports where
the Web sites are ranked by the search engines and indices.

The “ScoreCard” report begins with a graphic overview displaying
the rankings on search engines which include Excite, Altavista, Lycos,
Infoseek and Yahoo!.

Also provided in the “Scorecard” are detailed lists of search results,
including the top 10 ranking on each search engine or index under those
keywords. The
report is then e-mailed to the user.
