A search engine from BrightPlanet Corporation, Sioux Falls, SD (www.brightplanet.com) that was the first to provide results from the deep Web. Designed as PC software for the individual searcher, LexiBot located websites with content databases and set up individual queries that would normally have to be manually entered one at a time. Introduced in 2000, LexiBot came from the Mata Hari search engine from Visual Metrics Corp., which merged with Paulsen Marketing Communications Inc., to form BrightPlanet. LexiBot subsequently evolved into Deep Query Manager (DQM) and later a family of deep Web query tools. See deep Web.
