Another Example of "Intelligence" Mined from Shopping Search

In the past few months we've talked about several resources that combine shopping/pricing information (both general shopping and specialty product info) and then offer value-added services along with the results.

+ mPire.com
Shopping search plus historical pricing information

+ Trulia
Heat maps and monthly reports on the real estate search market.

+ FareCast
Airline ticket shopping plus historical pricing info.

+ Wize
Taking user-generated rated reviews from disparate web sources and combining them into a single score.

One source that has gotten past us to this point is the Oodle Index Report. Oodle is a database of over 20 million classified listings. Oodle Index Reports can be found here. Hopefully, new reports will be arriving soon. Here's a list of the 2006 Year-End Reports (PDF):

+ Chicago Car and Housing Report
+ Los Angeles Car and Housing Report
+ New York City Car and Housing Report
+ Philadephia Car and Housing Report
+ Washington, D.C. Car and Housing Report
+ San Francisco Car and Housing Report

Source: Oodle
