Abstract

Search engines such as Google allows targeted search. We disclose a business method and related process around such directed search. A search company can sell such key targets as "shop:", "map:", "directions:", "news:", "auction:", etc. This creates multi-level search keys -- primary term, secondary term -- that doesn't exist in current mass search technologies.
