Optevi Launches Search Engine

Los Angeles-based Optevi, a new startup in the web search space, rolled out its services this week. Optevi said that its search engine uses existing search engines but allows customers to create their own "search bundles" based on their favorite web sites and ranking preferences. The web site allows users to rank the web sites they would most like to see results from, so that when they search those sites appear first in the search results. The privately held firm has been so far bootstrapped by its founders.
