A search engine from BrightPlanet Corporation, Sioux Falls, SD (www.brightplanet.com) that was the first to provide results from the deep Web. Designed as PC software for the individual searcher, it locates Web sites with content databases and sets up individual queries that would normally have to be manually entered one at a time.|
Introduced in 2000, LexiBot evolved from the Mata Hari search engine from Visual Metrics Corp., which merged with Paulsen Marketing Communications Inc., to form BrightPlanet. LexiBot's successor is Deep Query Manager (DQM), built with similar technology but accessed through one's browser and behaving more like an ASP enterprise tool. See deep Web.
