Welcome the new ‘kid on the block.’ The name is Blekko. It is a new and interesting search engine. It arrived in the market in November 2010. It continues to make improvements and move ahead in the field of web search. It intends to give users an efficient and engaging search result.
Innovative search technology
The search engine uses slashtag technology. It requires you to type “/” along with your search keyword to get search results. The results are divided in categories to make your search easier. You can straightaway click on what you are looking for.
The benefit of this technology is that you get only relevant search results. The search engine claims to cut useless spam sites that only complicate your search process, as you otherwise need to sort out between useful and useless sites first and then come to the subject you are looking for.
Users of Blekko already claim it to be better than others. According to them, you only need to sign up with this search engine, use slashtags to your search, and get refined search results.
Do you know you can also discover your friend’s slashtag and utilize the information to your own search? This adds a “social” touch to your web searching. Although it is too early to say whether users will like it or whether it will give Blekko an edge over Google and other major search engines, it is a feature to admire. As this new search engine endeavors to create a position for itself among giant search engines, you can expect more improvements in its functions and design.
