Google debuts gov search
Google debuted yet another search engine product Thursday, this time a U.S. Government Search.
The site, www.google.com/ig/usgov, allows users to search across U.S. federal, state and local government sites with domains such as .gov, .mil and select others within the .com, .us and .edu domains.
Users will also be able to read government news on the homepage as well as have the ability to personalize the page by adding content feeds.
"Want to find those IRS forms to get in your taxes on time? Need to figure out where to send your DMV fees, or find the phone number for your local parks and rec department?" posted Google Product Manager Kevin Gough on the company's official blog page. "Google U.S. Government Search launches today -- it's a site on which you can 1) search across a huge index of U.S. Federal, state and local government websites via a single search box, and 2) stay up to date through personalized content feeds from government agencies and press outlets. Off you go."
