Quigo, Pixsy to offer multi-media search

Two relatively small online entities are hoping a partnership can put their names more solidly on the Internet map. Contextual pay-per-click ad firm Quigo is partnering with search engine Pixsy to create a new multi-media search platform.

To be very specific, if a user in Tampa Bay performs a search on a Pixsy site, the results will be localized to include information about local businesses, sports teams, news and events. The results will also hold contextual ads that are related to the search.

Google currently owns the top search engine ranking with 3.3 billion searches during the month of January, Yahoo was their closest competitor with 1.3 billion January searches. Ask.com and the Time Warner network may feel the Pixsy competition first, as the two entities show just over 300 million searches during January.
