Searching for Search Engines

In a recent post I mentioned the website that allows users to generate money for their favorite charity whenever they conduct Internet searches.

For another search engine consideration, you may want to check out Wiki search. According to their website, “Wiki’s search engine concept is that of trusted user feedback from a community of users acting together in an open, transparent, public way.” The concept shows great promise—and better search results.

Another new option is Cuil (pronounced “cool”—yea, I know; I don’t get it either. My daughter suggests “ui” as in juice or nuisance).  From a usage standpoint, Cuil presents results in a compelling two-column or three-column format. Also, they claim to have indexed far more web pages (120 billion) than Google (40 billion), the current king of all search engines.

Happy searching.
