Information seeking is getting more difficult, because there is too much information on the nets. In order to increase the accuracy of searching results, a user must possess information skills, such as Boolean logic: “and”, “or” etc. He also needs to know when to use general search or blog search to get more suitable results. Unfortunately, not everyone has these skills. In this research, a searching service is proposed. It is smarter because users describe their needs and situations, the system makes decisions of what kind of search engines to use, where (local dataset or Internet resource) to look, and what terms to be used in this search. Furthermore, mobile devices and mobile communication are very popular. The system also compiles the search results into an appropriate format for their current devices, so the reading can be enjoyable. The whole experience environment is based on service oriented architecture. Therefore, it would be a scalable, dynamic and reliable system.
