Cuil – Search Engine by Ex-Google Employees

Posted on: July 29, 2008

Google search architect Anna Patterson her husband Tom Costello and Russell Power, who worked at Google on search indexing, Web rankings and spam detection, (He works as vice president of engineering at Cuil.) have launched a new search engine named cuil (pronounced ‘cool’)

cuil- it’s pitched as bigger, faster, and better than Google‘s flagship search engine in pretty much every way.

The most important difference between Cuil and Google is its ranking system. Rather than assigning priority to pages based on inbound links as Google does ("Pagerank"), Cuil analyzes the content of Web pages to divine their relevance to a search query. The service also displays images from Web results whenever possible. It all adds up to search results pages that are much more attractive.

Unfortunately the seems to be down when I tried to use it greeted me with –

We’ll be back soon…

Due to overwhelming interest, our Cuil servers are running a bit hot right now. The search engine is momentarily unavailable as we add more capacity.

Thanks for your patience.
