BizwikiBot adds more detail to Businesses

The BizwikiBot web crawler has been extremely busy recently, and we’re happy to say we’ve been able to add additional detail to hundreds of thousands of businesses right across America.

Our custom-built BizwikiBot is programmed to perform tasks such as confirming or updating vital contact details and retrieving and processing a short portion of text about companies. As well as adding additional useful content about companies on the site, this is a great help to our human editors in keeping information up to date.

Expect to additional information appearing on over a hundred thousand more company pages over the weeks ahead as BizwikiBot continues its crawling, indexing and sorting of data.

You can add a new company to Bizwiki or add a website to an existing business record and the site will be added to a list for BizwikiBot to spider in its next pass.

 What is BizwikiBot?

BizwikiBot is a web crawler programmed to browse the internet in a methodical, automated manner. When visiting sites, BizwikiBot spiders pages and retrieves text as a means of providing up-to-date information about businesses to the many people who use the Bizwiki site.

This automatically spidered information is added to the hand-written content, providing additional detail to the site’s users. Registered users can edit and add to these records, with a goal of providing the public with a more complete picture of each company.

BizwikiBot is designed to be a polite bot, following any instructions from the site’s owners and using the minimum bandwidth and server resources.

    Do you know if Galligaskins, Juneau, AK, is still in business?
    I used to receive their catalogs and liked their high-quality
    merchandise. I’ve been unable to contact them for three years
    or more.

    Hi Janus, thanks for the question. According to this piece from 2007 it would appear as if the company changed from being bricks and mortar store to a mail order shop. The website address we have on file for them is not currently working. Other online resources all point to the same address/phone number that we have.

    I have sent out a few inquiries.

    Hi Barry,

    You do not need to add a company to Bizwiki – we’ll find it and add it for you! We have had a great deal of success in adding and compiling business records using our fine-tuned Bizwiki Bot Spider, and new company records will be added to the site periodically at regular intervals.

    To help Bizwiki Bot find your information please ensure that your company name, address and telephone details are on the home and/or about pages of your site.

    Thank you for your interest.
