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.
Shopping search plus historical pricing information
Heat maps and monthly reports on the real estate search market.
Airline ticket shopping plus historical pricing info.
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
