An Actual New Kind of Search Engine

Category: FeaturedSearch EnginesSXSWi Comments: One comment

About a year ago, I wrote about my disdain for Bing, an aversion that still holds true. Their searches are irrelevant, the ads seem to mock, and Bing’s self-righteous nature only makes me dislike it even more. (In case you are wondering, I’m team Chrome.) But, thanks to a newly released search engine, I have a new respect for those reevaluating the original engine-y model. This new model, Blekko, is a search engine that eliminates the spam and paid search results. A search engine that doesn’t pull up spam? What a novel idea.

newspapersWhile researching or reading up on a certain topic or current event, one of the most frustrating things in the world is to be taken to a snippet of the article and to be told that to read the entire article, one needs to sign up for a paid membership to the site.

That doesn’t mean that newspapers should simply give up and die. There are many things that newspapers can do to avoid extinction. The ones that embrace the online space faster and more effectively have the best chance for survival.”

News and current event articles, as well as columns, tutorials, and blog posts should never require readers to pay for access. The fire on 2nd street in downtown Manhattan, Kansas isn’t the secret to finding the Holy Grail, so why should I have to pay to read about it, especially when I can find out all the details from Twitter, Facebook, or another Free news site or blog?
