History[edit]

Newslookup.com is the first news search engine to allow users to search by source region of the news organization and categorize by news media type (Newspapers, Television, Radio, Internet). This includes allowing the user to search and display results by document parts, including document body, meta keywords and meta description.

In early 2004 Newslookup.com began presenting lead news headline history from top news sites in a fashion referred to as region and topical editions. In addition a news wire service was launched by site, region and topic that provided RSS feeds for many international and top news sites lacking this service.
