Microsoft chooses Euroseek as its search engine Microsoft and Euroseek have entered into a Nordic co-operation agreement which will provide access to Euroseek's search engine on Microsoft's MSN and Internet Explorer portals. The Swedish company Euroseek (www.euroseek.com), with Internet services such as portals, search engines, information, entertainment, e-commerce and wireless broadband access, has entered into a Nordic co-operation agreement with Microsoft in Kista. "The co-operation agreement with Microsoft will result in more visitors to Euroseek's search engine and greater exposure for the Euroseek brand," says Catherine Sahlgren, Managing Director of Euroseek. As a result of the agreement, Euroseek is now to be found on Microsoft's search engines, i.e. on both MSN's portals in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland and in the built-in search function in versions 3, 4 and 5 of the Internet Explorer web browser. It is expected that the number of page views on MSN's four portals in the Nordic countries will reach over 30 million per month and around 4 million per month for Internet Explorer's search engine. Microsoft has chosen Euroseek as one of five partners in Microsoft's search engines. "Euroseek's popularity and its experience of creating multilingual services will provide our users with a well-known brand at MSN," says Jens Gorne, Business Manager of MSN.se in Sweden.
