Will Blekko stand up to the likes of Google in search engines war?
In an era of new inventions on the web, the search engine market has been reined by Google ever since its launch. As compared to the other search engines, Google owns as much as 65% of the market share thus enjoying a monopoly in the search engine business. However, with the forthcoming release of Blekko, a newly designed search engine, the buzz in the online market is that the new release will soon become a threat to Google’s decade long reign.
Creating a hold in the market has always been difficult, especially with the rising requirements of the users. Hence, it’s extremely arduous to even think that Blekko will be successful in upsetting Google’s long reign. Moreover, in the recent times, other new search engines like Wikia and Cuil, etc. that released in the market with great fervor, failed miserably to win the hearts of all surfers. However, most web analysts are keeping their fingers crossed about the features of this new search engine.
Blekko has been in the labs for more than 2.5 years now and has been crafted to perfection by its developers, keeping in mind the requirements of all its users. The new search engine has been co-founded and developed by Rich Skrenta (CEO) along with his partners and fellow developers. Blekko is currently in the private alpha session and will soon be provided to testers for its beta version. Once both these stages are cleared, it will soon be launched across the online market this summer.
Blekko is a well designed, fully functional search engine that includes regular search engine crawls to over billions of webpages. So, what is the difference between Blekko and Google, as the later also offers the same? Blekko differentiates itself from the others in a very unique way. The new forthcoming search engine is designed to offer essential tools to the users for performing new advanced searches which cannot be performed elsewhere. It also differentiates itself from the others by offering its users an extraordinary open access to important algorithms and other vital data that the search engine follows for determining the relevancy of the websites.
According to the company designing the search engine, the algorithms followed by Blekko is mostly similar to that of Bing and Google. However, the only difference is that of its refinement tools which are called as the Slashtags. Most of these Slashtag tools such as the /news, /amazon, /date, /blogs, etc. help the users to instantly filter the results that are being searched by them. The tool allows the users to create personal Slashtags for their desired websites.
Based on its innovative features and flexibility, Blekko is surely to be liked by its users. Any person, who has used the entire series of search tools designed by Google, will give Blekko thumbs up. Blekko is fast, and advanced than the most recent search engines. It is also liked by people for its transparency in showing up its data and algorithms that it follows for website ranking. Hence, you can easily have a look at the duplicated contents, inbound links, metadata for domains, etc. which are crucial SEO details usually followed by people for optimizing their website’s traffic and ranking. It also provides a list of other minute details about the website’s SEO stats which prove to be a great help in planning a website’s SEO.
