Lionseek is an eCommerce search engine that improves the user experience to search the 'for sale' section of popular online forums.
Over 40,000 enthusiast online forums exist for more than 500M people. For everything imaginable there is a segregated online community forum focused on a specific topic like: Panerai watches, Donzi boats, Jordan sneakers, Vintage firearms, BWM cars, etc.
There are over 150,000 transactions a day that happen within these forums. Many times these items cannot be found anywhere else – not ebay, not google, not amazon. The problem for buyers when looking for an item within these forums is that the software was developed to facilitate discussions and not for eCommerce. Before Lionseek, users would have to read cluster of posts and large amounts of text one post at a time just to find the most relevant data.
