The clips made with DemoForge are small enough to be placed on a Web site or integrated into a help system. A 15 minute presentation may be smaller than 60 KB (a few seconds to download with a slowest modem connection).

SEARCH ENGINE NEWS
*****************************

Overture - It seems every month there have been lots of changes with regards to search engines and listings. This month is no different. According to the latest information that I have Overture will now be serving Lycos additional listings. The current Lycos implementation has been expanded to now include up to six Overture listings when a user conducts a search at www.lycos.com. Listings in positions 1-3 will be displayed in a section called "Sponsored Search Listings" at the top of the page. Overture listings in positions 4-6 may appear in boxes on the right side of the page. In addition as of September 2002, Overture will no longer be serving results to AskJeeves.

ALTAVISTA - In honor of the one-year anniversary of Express Inclusion, we are now offering special low pricing on all Express Inclusion services, including adding URLs, country indices & listing enhancements! Add URLs to the AltaVista search results for only $17, or drive more traffic to your URLs by adding a logo for as little as $20! Discounted prices are only through August 15th. Effective August 1, 2002, all of the active URLs in your Express Inclusion account will be visited daily by AltaVista, and the information AltaVista collects during that visit will be used to update your listings. You can now make frequent changes to your web site and those changes will be reflected in the AltaVista search results the very next day! http://www.infospider.com
