Perth, Australia. 10:00 am EST Wednesday 24 September, 2003. In a retail first, digital book company eBooks.com announced today that it has indexed its entire collection, enabling fast, relevant searches across every word in every title in its database.
eBooks.com is one of the oldest retailers of commercial ebooks on the web, offering 25,000 titles across all subject categories.
"This feature changes the face of the ebook industry. Full text search means that now our customers are much more likely to find the information they`re looking for. If you want to know about "mushrooms" or "Agamemnon", you`ll find it at eBooks.com - whether or not those terms occur in a book`s title or description. Naturally, results are ranked intelligently, so that the most relevant book is likely to come up first. No other online bookstore does this," Stephen Cole, CEO of eBooks.com, said. "Our new search engine delivers fast, relevant search results to our customers, which translates into increased sales for those publishers whose titles are hosted at eBooks.com."
