Explanation of this custom search tool

This tool makes it easy to search across a specific community of related websites, such as economic development agencies for a particular state or region, or similar types of professional services.

This eliminates myriad WWW search results unrelated to this niche, or the need for duplicate searches across such sites separately.

This makes it easy to search press releases across many related organizations at the same time as other related content, such as later references to an investment project after it is announced.

For example, this page serves the community of executives and business advisors who may be seeking information about specific aspects of doing business in a particular region, but who need to find and compare information from multiple locations or service providers.

Search Tips

Since this search tool covers multiple websites, as listed below, it may be helpful to narrow a search with an exact phrase by including these keywords in quotes as shown:

bullet "press release" or "new jobs" may help to find recent project announcements across multiple websites.
bullet "workforce development", "labor market", "human resources" or "training program" may help to find such HR topics.
bullet "available sites" or "site selection" may easily find property listing tools or other content intended to be helpful to business location consultants or corporate real estate brokers.

It is also possible to refine a search within the list of initial results.
