After several years (and millions of dollars) of testing, users got the opportunity to try out a new search engine in action - Blekko. To such giants as Google or Yahoo!, the new search engine is still far away, but the innovations used indicate a completely new approach to search and the emergence of a serious competitor for market leaders.
Search using the system Blekko differs primarily in that one of the factors, perhaps the most important, in the issuance of search results is played by the user himself. On blekko.com, the function of the so-called “slashtags” (slashtag) or categories has been implemented, it will be possible to search not on the entire array of sites and pages on the Web, but on sites related to a specific topic, for example, “news” or “humor” .
The search engine is a real gift for optimizers, each site issued as a result of the search is easily checked for basic SEO indicators, just click the “seo” button next to the site name. In the same way, you can see all links to a particular site and, for example, its safe copy. The user can mark the site as spam that is not related to the search query, or, conversely, mark the importance and authority of the site for subsequent search queries. The use of such tools should help clean up the search results, which today are overloaded with "over-optimized" sites full of keywords, but not needed by someone who is looking for certain information on the Internet.
