192.com launches Google Gadget

192.com, the UK’s leading people, business and place finder, has launched a unique Google Gadget that allows users to search for people and businesses directly from their iGoogle homepage.

The new gadget gives users fast and free access to the site's 13 million residential listings and 4.5 million business listings. Users can also search 192.com's award winning maps and aerial photography directly from the gadget. In addition, the new tool will search the site's premium records including Electoral Rolls and Company and Director Reports.

iGoogle home pages allow you to personalise your Google search page giving you fast access to key information and tools across the web. It's estimated that 20% of Google users have adopted a personalised iGoogle home page.

Dominic Blackburn, New Technology Director, 192.com said of the launch, “Adding 192.com's directory enquiry search tool next to your news and weather updates ideally rounds out your iGoogle home page. We first developed this gadget to allow our existing users to access search results faster but we now see it has great potential to attract new users as well.“
