Colorado's Web site adopts Google

Colorado’s official state Web site has switched from Verity to Google to power its search capability.

The move to Google was announced earlier this month. The state’s Colorado.gov portal is a collaborative effort between the Statewide Internet Portal Authority and Colorado Interactive. Colorado Interactive is a Denver-based subsidiary of NIC, which builds and manages government Web sites and e-government services.

Google’s search engine technology “has proven to be more reliable and accurate with quicker results,” a spokeswoman for Colorado.gov said. NIC offers Google to all 18 of its state portal customers and many of those customers have adopted Google, she added.
