FirstGov’s New Government Search Engine

The new FirstGov search engine powered by Vivisimo and Microsoft has been launched 3 months ahead of schedule. The new search engine for the US Federal Government now indexes over 40 million pages compared to 8 million pages for the previous search site. The FirstGov search engine uses Vivisimo’s clustering technology to cluster similar results for easier searching and uses Microsoft search technology to retrieve results.
