Baynote Announces Free Open Source Search With Free Hosting

Baynote Go Is Backed By The "Wisdom of Community"; Lifts Website Conversion Rates By 25%

Baynote announced the launch of Baynote Go, a free offering that provides businesses with search for their websites without any software, hosting, or support costs. Baynote Go is one of three business-ready, open source search offerings on baynote.org.

Baynote Go delivers precise search results to visitors and is backed by the "Wisdom of Community," which provides actionable recommendations based on the emergent behaviors of website visitors including peers, experts, and the greater site community. By understanding the site community, Baynote delivers a 15-25% lift in business target conversions such as more customer leads, purchases, downloads, event registrations, and support questions answered. Baynote Go is designed for businesses of any size that are focused on improving online conversion rates while reducing the cost and complexity of managing their website.

Baynote Go is built on the Apache Foundation's Nutch search engine.  Working closely with the open source search community , Baynote delivers three business-ready open source search offerings, including a free hosting option that includes hosted search, administration, and community-based support, all free of charge.

Websites using Baynote Go can also take advantage of Baynote Content Guidance, which analyzes visitor search and navigation behaviors, then dynamically customizes the website search and navigational experience for each user. Content Guidance vastly improves the conversion potential of any business website and Baynote customers have realized a 15-25% lift in business target conversions.

Baynote Go includes the following capabilities:

-- Business Ready: a robust solution that can be configured in minutes
-- Precise search: powered by Apache Nutch, Go includes sophisticated link-analysis and deep indexing of your website for state-of-the-art relevancy
-- Point & click setup: self-service setup that requires zero IT resources
-- Flexible presentation: easily customize the appearance directly through the browser, and include custom or third party controls directly into the page
-- No cost: Baynote Go is 100% free

"There is an invisible crowd of buyers who flock to websites each day, representing new opportunities for businesses," said Jack Jia, CEO of Baynote. "With Baynote Go plus Baynote's Content Guidance, businesses Baynote can tap into this invisible crowd and experience the kind of lift in conversions that our customers using Content Guidance are already enjoying."
