A new search site aims to rival Google, it is called Cuil.com. This new search engine has been launched by former workers at the web giant Google.
It is called Cuil, from the Gaelic for knowledge and hazel, its founders claim it does a better and more comprehensive job of indexing information online. According to the founders, the technology used by Cuil.com can understand the context surrounding each page and the concepts driving search requests.
However, many analysts believe the new search engine will have a hard time to defeat Google. The creators claim that Cuil uses more than 120 billion webpages to build up its index of the information it finds on the web.
Cuil website also claims that
Rather than rely on superficial popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their inter-relationships and the page's coherency.
I am really curious to see if their search engine will prove to be better than Google’s, but even if successful, it will take time to replace, if ever, Google.
