"Cuil" Search Engine Launches

Jul 29, 2008

Cuil (pronounced COOL), a technology company, launched its search offering, which combines a web index with content-based relevance methods, results organized by ideas, and complete user privacy. Cuil has indexed 120 billion web pages and provides organized and relevant results based on web page content analysis. It organizes similar search results into groups and sorts them by category. Cuil gives users a display of results and offers organizing features, such as tabs to clarify subjects, images to identify topics, and search refining suggestions to help guide users to the results they seek. Cuil’s features include: a magazine-style layout that separates results by subject and allows further search by concept or category, results ranked by the content on each page, and privacy protection.
