Search Companies by Location

I don’t know if this’ll be useful to anyone or not, but over the past several months I’ve compiled a list of the physical locations of some search (using the term loosely) companies. Why? Because deep in my soul there still lives a librarian and ontologist. I’ve limited it to companies that have English products.

It’s certainly not exhaustive, so if you know more, send them my way.

  1. Hi Chris – you may want to add searchles to the list… (www.searchles.com) We hail from Washington, D.C. daring to be coastally different from your list!

  2. There might be a few extra on John Batelle’s homepage too. Don’t limit yourself to websearch. Federated searching in the corporate enterprise is interesting too…
