Who cares if you don't care... someone might...

Well, it has been a few months since I stepped back from the abyss that is the social side of my SEO passion. An enjoyable break that spilled over onto the blog in the form of more casual posting, it must be a summer thing (as I took a few months off last year as well). I totally advise it for everyone from time to time… recharging the batteries is good for ya!

Building a better search engine

We all know about the latest Google killer by now right? You know, Cuil (pronounced ‘cool’)… the relevance based search engine that boasts more pages in its index than the mighty peeps at the Plex?

While there has been no lack of FAIL floating around after its recent launch, there are a few reasons why this Gypsy might just take a deeper look.

What I found interesting was that one Anna Patterson is on board... which itself might not mean much, but spare me a few moments to enlighten. She’s one of the ‘ex-Googlers’ that are part of the team at Cuil (along with hubby Tom). I know.. all falling in place now right? Ok.. a little further...

“Anna was the architect of Google’s large search index, TeraGoogle, that launched in early 2006. While at Google, Anna was the technical lead of one of the two Web ranking groups at Google, in charge of GoogleBase, and the manager for the core piece of Google’s ad-matching technology. She joined Google in 2004 after designing, writing and selling Recall—the largest search engine in existence at the time at 12 billion pages..”

Is Cuil using phrase based IR?
