Washington, D.C. (August 31, 1999) - Political Information (.com), a search engine for politics and policy, has recently expanded its comprehensive listing of political web sites. The nonpartisan search engine now has over 4500 sites in its search index, carefully selected for quality and partisan balance, as well as links to over 1200 sites arranged by category.
"With the Internet as important as it is in the upcoming election cycle," said Michael Biundo of Atlantic Strategies Group, a New Hampshire-based political consulting firm, "this web site is an essential first stop in gathering information on any political topic. I bookmarked it immediately."
"Trying to find good political or policy information with a general-interest search engine is like looking for loose change on a beach without a metal detector -- frustrating and usually fruitless," said Pat Delany, Political Information (.com)'s president. "We've hand-picked more than 4500 of the best online policy and political resources and made it easy to get balanced information on any political or policy topic. Plus, we update our search index frequently."
The search engine has recently invited webmasters at other political websites to place their websites in its listing of sites-by-category, and the response has been overwhelming. "We've had many more sites suggested than we could review some days," Delany says. "The quality of the sites submitted has be very high." The search engine collects information from issue-advocacy sites, news organizations, sites for political parties and organizations, online research tools and individual citizens' political web pages.
The Political Information (.com) website, located at http://www.politicalinformation.com, also contains each day's congressional schedules and will be adding a daily political news overview.
Political Information (.com) is a member of D.C. Orbit, a web network of non-partisan policy and political websites.
