New search engine, better than Google?

It did find some more obscure items for me but missed the major/obvious ones.

I'll stick with Google for now.
 
I tried it before I stopped in at prime today. Didn't like it at all. Poor results, doesn't like to have any time gaps when clicking on the next page of results, and seems to forget what my search query was.

I dislike the presentation as well. Scrolling vertically is way easier than scrolling vertically AND horizontally to read the search results.
 
It's got a ways to go. I tried a couple searches that generate known results on Google, and Cuil could not find them.

I'll stick with Google for now.
 
ill take google for now
 
I used cuil to search for google and it returned: "a Web search engine owned by Google, Inc., is the most used search engine on the Web. Google receives several hundred million queries each day through its various services.":smile:

Then I tried to search for cuil... and all I got was the whois domain name search results along with unrelated results.:cool: I guess with all of their page indexing they overlooked their own. :tongue:

Yeah, I'm sticking with google for a while longer :rolleyes:

Tried searching "Sarajevo" and "Dubrovnik", got to an error page. Are they maybe having issues with high first day traffic???

Google it is!
 
I just attempted to do a search and got the following:

"No results because of high load...
Due to excessive load, our servers didn't return results. Please try your search again."

Not ready for primetime yet... :D
 
They aren't better currently, but they JUST launched so I would give them some time.

I agree, the magazine layout is annoying because it makes you scroll horizontally.

I think they should have just copied Google's layout (proven) and tried to improve on the core algorithms.
 
btw SearchEngine + ??? = profit, was like ten years ago.

aren't google, yahoo and msft still all making money off of paid search?

I agree it is one of the oldest internet business models, but i think it is the most successful by far. Google is probably the most profitable internet company, and they still use a business model from the mid 90s.

yes, companys buy spots on the pages, i have a couple freinds that sell spots on the first page of google


like for example, if nsx prime wanted to buy the whole first page of the search: "super hella fast mega jdm car" they could

plus all the adds on probably the most visited internet site
 
[[link spam deleted by admin]] theres also this one where they send you a card loaded with money. they dont ask for your bank info or paypal or anything like that. could be worth the shot. got it from slickdeals.

If you expect use to use you as a referral, please disclose that as well as how you benefit.

"The top search engines make billions of dollars a year in advertising revenue, wouldn't it be cool if the users got a piece of that too? Enter Scour Points! Every member is awarded one point for every search, two for a vote and three for a comment with a maximum of 4 points a search. Once you aggregate at least 6,500 points you can cash them out for a $25 Visa gift card... it's more than you currently make from searching, right? On top of that, we offer referral points for the friends you introduce to Scour where you can earn 25% of the points they make. So if you invited 25 friends that used scour regularly in addition to yourself, that's an easy $125 in your pocket for a year of what you already do! Check out how much you could earn with the Scour Points Calculator. This isn't a pyramid scheme and we're not trying to get you rich quick, we just think it's a good idea to share our success with those who help make it possible.

Easier yet for them to make money is to start a pay search engine that filters ALL commercial and non essential crap. Just like pay cable was/is. I don't want to watch 10 scottrade commercials so I can watch a few news clips. I don't want to sift through a bunch of adds to find what I want. I bet a lot of seniors don't want to either, although I am far from a senior I bet a lot of seniors know more about the internet then I do. I don't use Google I use Yahoo BTW. It is what I learned on and I find it easy to use, except all the commercials.
And while I am on the subject, free porn for everyone with no pop ups, well on the screen anyways.:biggrin:

Seriously, pay search engine with nothing annoying on it. I would pay at least 10 bucks a month for it. BTW I have already proposed this idea to someone who is looking into building something like it.

BTW, I did like the search engine posted in this thread but I don't like the way the results are displayed.
