Panabee: A Faster Way to Compare Information and Products

panabeeAre you tired of having to open too many browser windows to search for a “keyword” or a “product”? Have you been searching for a tool where you can view search results from multiple sites such as eBay, Amazon, Flickr, Google, Bing, etc on a split screen side by side? I want to introduce you to Panabee, a new search tool that you can use to compare search results within a single browser window.

Panabee gives you the option to compare search results from multiple sites within one browser window. You can run a search query for “startupbooster” and Panabee will return a split screen window with results from Google and Bing as shown below. If you don’t like the results from Google or Bing, you can choose other search engines on Panabee and it will return results from that specific engine.

Panabee also has a tool bar on top of the split screen page. In that tool bar, you can choose to continue your search for the same keyword on another site. In order to demonstrate how useful this site could be for you, I ran a search for “camera” on eBay and Amazon at the same time. The results are shown in the image below.

This tool can really be handy for many of you so you don’t have to open and close multiple browser windows. I was contacted recently by the founder of this wonderful site. Clarence Hu asked me to review and introduce this new tool to my readers. I had a chance to ask Clarence a few questions. I’ve posted them below:

What is your vision? (what are you offering to your visitors?)

We are offering a faster way to search and compare information.

What is your business plan or model?

We will generate revenue through sponsored ads.

Why did you start this website?

We started Panabee because we often need to search multiple sites (e.g., Bing and Google, eBay and Amazon, Flickr and Google Images, Wal-Mart and Target) for the same query.  We found this task annoying.  Google is great 90% of the time, but it doesn’t return perfect results all the time.  For these other times, we wanted a quick and simple way to search trusted sites.

How are you planning to market it?

We will target four user groups: journalists, bloggers, shoppers, and marketers.  We believe these four constituencies most benefit from Panabee’s ability to search the same sites repeatedly (e.g., blogger needs to search image sites for images or reference sites for company/general information). From there, we will leverage word-of-mouth and launch sponsored ad campaigns.

When was the site launched?

July 2009

Why is your site different than your competitors?

Panabee differs from traditional search engines because we show the site directly, and because we offer a side-by-side view.  With other search engines, page indexing may be outdated, but because Panabee shows the underlying site (e.g., eBay, Amazon), search results are real-time and are guaranteed to be reliable.
