What are Portals and Vortals?

Portals are websites that serve as a point of access to the internet and also present information on
a variety of topics in an integrated manner. Websites such as Yahoo, MSN and AOL are portals that
serve as gateways to the internet while carrying comprehensive content ranging from news,
entertainment and sports to updates on technology, movies, jobs etc. They also offer critical features
such as email, chat, games, personals and online shopping which add value to the visitor’s browsing
experience. Portals act as the virtual one-stop-shop for people browsing the internet.
Portals are a cost effective, quick and secure channel for companies to share information with
customers, partners and employees and are a must for companies operating in today’s market.
Vertical Portals, commonly referred to as Vortals, provide information and resources for a
specific industry or group. Vortals are ideal for professionals or persons with focused interests as
they provide news, research, discussions, newsletters, online tools and other services specific to
that industry.
Industry watchers predict growing popularity of vortals because it is easier to cluster and present
correlated information. Vortals are also becoming increasingly popular for searching the net because
general Web search engines such as Altavista and Google tend to return too much information of
little relevance to the user.
