A new search engine has launched in Iran.
Named Parsijoo, which means “Persian search”, the search engine is aimed at the Iranian market and its homepage is written in Persian.
It already has 1 billion webpages indexed in its database and has separate search result tabs including text, image, video, audio, map, news, science, market and download sections.
Its homepage has a search bar for users to type their queries, and also features Iranian weather, news, financial and sporting information.
Parsijoo hopes that it will gain half a million users in its first year, with ambitions to double this number every year, with user numbers predicted to reach 4 million after 4 years.
Parsijoo is not the only search engine to have been created specifically for the Iranian market. Earlier this year, rival search engine Yooz launched in the country, hoping to compete with dominant international search engine Google.
