Buzzdock Launches Cutting Edge Search Platform to Millions of Users

Ever meet those people that always seem to be in the know? They seem to mysteriously have the scoop on what's going on. Whether about a certain industry, a hobby or a sport; they know the buzz on that topic.

Buzzdock, Inc. focuses on getting “the buzz” out to users through their development of a downloadable tool called, “Buzzdock.” After a user downloads Buzzdock (from www.buzzdock.com), a dock appears on their Google results page. This “Buzzdock” contains a variety of cutting edge social applications, including YouTube, Twitter, Wikipedia, eBay, Flickr, Digg and Amazon. These applications display results based on one’s search keyword.

For example, if you search for, “Michael Jackson” on Google, in addition to the normal Google results, Buzzdock provides results from Twitter on who’s talking about Michael Jackson right now, concert pictures of Michael Jackson through Flickr, Michael Jackson’s biography and background through Wikipedia, and hot deals on Michael Jackson CD’s through Amazon. They'll discover videos of Michael Jackson through YouTube, and find the most popular stories on Michael Jackson through Digg. Users will even have the ability to bid on autographed albums through eBay. In short, with Buzzdock installed users get search results from their favorite websites without having to leave Google.

“For one to truly understand Buzzdock, they’ll have to experience it first-hand,” says Buzzdock, Inc. CEO, Arie Trouw. “We envisioned that Buzzdock would add a powerful boost to the search experience, but we didn’t understand how powerful this would be until using Buzzdock internally.”

Already Buzzdock has received acclaim from Technology journalists and Public Relations professionals. “Buzzdock has been critical for our employees to stay updated on our company’s name online,” says Joseph Jacks, VP of Marketing at Digital Brand Group. “With Buzzdock, we’ve been able to see what our customers are saying about our product at that point in time, and we love the fact that it’s so easy to use. There’s no training involved. If you’ve ever been curious about Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, you should start by downloading Buzzdock.”

Moving forward in 2010, Buzzdock plans to add more features, more websites and customization options. To learn more about Buzzdock, visit www.buzzdock.com and click the “download” button using Firefox or Internet Explorer.
