New Search Engine – Blekko – Works Like a Wiki
Kinda. Users can “approve” or “bundle” web site hits from Blekko.com’s searches. The site, “launched” on Monday, is kinda like a new version of the old DMOZ. In fact, it is done by the same group. Interesting. Will it replace Google? Doubtful.
“Blekko, a new search engine that launched in beta Monday, uses a wiki-like model to deliver results. Volunteers work to categorize the Web by creating slashtags for topics and weeding out malware and spam sites. For searches that don’t fall within a slashtag category, Blekko uses its proprietary ranking algorithms to deliver relevant results from its Web crawl, which covers 3 billion pages.”
