Truveo claims to offer ‘most’ comprehensive video search engine

Video search engine Truveo , which was acquired by AOL in January 2006, claims to offer “the most comprehensive” results of any major search engine online. According to Truveo, its claim is based on an in-house study that looked at how well Truveo, Blinkx, Google Video, Microsoft Live Video Search and Yahoo Video Search covered the top 100 Alexa-rated news, sports, TV, music and movie sites that have video content.

Video search engine Truveo , which was acquired by AOL in January 2006, claims to offer “the most comprehensive” results of any major search engine online. According to Truveo, its claim is based on an in-house study that looked at how well Truveo, Blinkx, Google Video, Microsoft Live Video Search and Yahoo Video Search covered the top 100 Alexa-rated news, sports, TV, music and movie sites that have video content.

The study, conducted during the past four weeks, showed that Truveo covered 86 of those sites; Blinkx covered 20; Microsoft Live Video Search covered 17; Google Video covered three and Yahoo Video Search covered two. Truveo conducted this coverage test itself because currently no major testing organization, publication or consulting firm is publicly conducting ongoing quality studies of video search engines, the company has said.

Launched in 2005, Truveo today powers video search on a number of sites including AOL Video, AOL Search, Brightcove, CBS Radio, Clevver, CSTV, Excite, Flock, Infospace, Kosmix, Microsoft, Pageflakes, PureVideo, Qwest, CNET’s Search.com, Sportingo, Sports Illustrated, Widgetbox and YourMinis.
