New Google Search Site Makes It Easier To Find Government Information

Announcement
June 15, 2006

Google today announced Google U.S. Government Search (usgov.google.com), a new search product that will make it easier to find U.S. government information and keep up to date on government news.

With Google U.S. Government Search, millions of U.S. government employees, various contractor organizations, as well as the general public can easily search across content on official federal, state and local government sites from a single search box. They can also keep current on government-related news with constantly updated content from government and commercial news sources, including the White House, Department of Defense, The Washington Post, and Google News.

Google U.S. Government Search allows people to customize the layout of the page and add content to the site from an easily searchable directory that includes information on government and general topics such as sports, business and technology. News from other websites can be added using RSS feeds (technology that makes it easy to subscribe to content).

Google U.S. Government Search is the newest Google search product for government agencies. Google’s enterprise group already counts hundreds of government agencies as customers for Google enterprise search and geospatial products.

To expand Google’s ability to serve federal government customers, Google also recently added Mike Bradshaw, as head of federal sales. Bradshaw, who has more than 20 years experience selling technology to federal agencies, will be located in Google’s office in Herndon, Va., where he will focus on helping federal agencies benefit from Google enterprise products, such as the Google Search Appliance, Google Mini, Google Earth Enterprise and Google Maps for Enterprise.
