New search engine



Cuil was working this morning. Very interesting approach to search. The initial screen is googly in the sense that the search box is the main attraction and nothing else. Big design difference is a black page versus the Google expanse of stark white. The biggest differentiator is the results (or SERP) page.

Couple very interesting things. One — multicolumn and more thumbnail graphic exposure. Second, a tab implementation, and third a  box of related sub-searches.  That’s where Cuil is going to have an impact … the SERP.

  1. I used it. It was interesting … need to do more noodling to see if I’ll switch from Google though.

  2. I had someone reach my blog via Cuil last night, so gave it a shot. Did the vanity search for Walking the Berkshires, and got lots of adds for local businesses and suggestions for hikes, but the only mention of my blog of that name was its old address that hasn’t been in use for more than 2 years. It will take a while to learn its search logic.
