Essential web admin tools included

Zoom uses its propriety-ranking algorithm to return results based on relevancy, and I have to confess that its scoring system surprised me. I compared the order of results as returned by Zoom against that of Google custom search for the test site that I indexed, and they're ranked pretty well in the same order. Whatever secret sauce they've cooked into their application, Zoom did an excellent job of addressing relevancy where many competitors failed.
