Slide 2

In present time search engines are considered to be a vast source of information and accessing the finest information is the first step for any information-seeker towards getting well-acquainted with facts and figures.

The search engine offers more transparency in its search results The feature of transparency is reflected very clearly in the search result pages being generated by the search engine. The users can not only like a page, mark it as spam and remove it from the search results forever, but they can also view the inbound and outbound links, a cached version, the IP address and SEO data. While the search engine does not disclose its relevance ranking algorithm, it does expose some of the information used for computing the algorithm.

blekko vs. Google The goals of both of the search engine are almost similar; i.e. both the search engines want to deliver only the most relevant pages for any search query. While Google relies on its search engine spiders to crawl and index the vast spaces of the web, Blekko relies on the user community to find useful sites and add them to the relevant slash tags.

Slide 7

The search engine provides safe-searching to its user base The search engine provides a feature of safe-search to its user base that is set to “moderate” by default which means that results containing irrelevant information will be visible only if a majority of search results are irrelevant. If the user wants to access each and every search result, he/she can click on “prefs” in the upper right of the search engine window and set safe-search to “disabled”.

Slide 8

The categories concept used by the search engine The search engine displays multiple categories for a given search term that expand and collapse to show more or less search results which can then be scrolled through horizontally. The user can expand a category and see more search results by clicking the vertical category title and he/she can jump to a different category by clicking from the menu on the left bar.
