Scope Filtering & What Makes Us Different 

The problem with most search engines isn't the search engine; it's the content that's being searched. A search engine looks through every word of every article or other content item in its database and tries to make sense of what it means in relationship to your request. Multiply this by millions or even billions of words and you get a sense of the difficulties most search engines have.

To solve this problem, The Network starts by defining all of its content on its websites. As each content item is added to our database, it is classified using a piece or multiple pieces of information called Scopes or Scope Groups. These Scopes or Scope Groups are attached to each article, Guru questions & answers, Bistro discussions, or eMarket listing. Additionally, to assist search results, the articles' authors can add key words (we call them Find Words) that help to describe the article's meaning.

What does all this mean?
When you request results via your pre-chosen preferences (Personalize or searches (using SmallBiZ Find?), you get exactly what you asked for and not a lot of useless information delivered by other search engines.

Don't take our word
Go to any article database or search engine (such as those on news sites). Type in what you want to find and you will get back thousands or even millions of results, most of which have no relationship (except for one or two words) to what you requested. Sandwiched in between the clutter are a few articles you want, but do you have time to find these? Certainly NOT!

Now try
Besides finding the articles you want, we give you even more. We offer other areas that often cover exactly the subjects or issues you are asking about:

Scope Filtering is one more reason we say, is "What Your BiZ Needs!"
