Amazon's A9 Search Engine Gets Extreme Makeover & Better Features

Sep 15, 2004 - 11:39 am 1 by

With a cleaned up look, and a host of new features, this is one engine that deserves some head turns. The BETA stage for Amazon's A9 search engine is now over, and in place Amazon has scaled down the homepage a little with some new colors, and host of new features. Search results are conducted normally but with the added "Image, Movie, and Reference" search. You can know conduct searches on the following:

Web - provided by Google Books - Amazon Images - provided by Google Movies - provided by Reference - provided by GuruNet History Bookmarks Diary

The best things about the new features is in my opinion the layout. I am using a 1680x1050 screen, it very handy to be able to switch back in forth with vertical windows in the same site. A single search can return results for over 8 different things, and with the push of a tab on the right hand side you can easily find the images corresponding to that search. Similar to how Google does it with invisible tabs. See a search for the road less travelled. Now try to click on the buttons on the right. Pretty easy huh.

Check out the new A9 for some fun today,

A big thanks to PK, from SEOchat for breaking the news on there, continue to discuss A9.
