Blekko - A Search Engine Safe for Students - 13 views

  •  
    "Blekko, a new search engine, is trying to provide more relevant search results that are spammer and content-farm free. Described as "Wikipedia meets search", the engine will use human oversight to separate that trusted content from that of spam. They also use the slashtag, /, to limit the results to only those of trusted sites. Blekko has predefined slashtags that you can use, like "/people" for a people search or /blog for a blog search. There are also topics and other categories like /basketball or /android. Since many of these tags are predefined, you might have to create your own slashtag if Blekko does not recognize what you are searching for. As you name your slashtag, you can list keywords and then enter the sites you want Blekko to search. You can share or browse slashtags of other users, too. This engine is heavily based on its users, much like Wikipedia is. Since it is still in beta testing stages, it is very likely that the site will improve sometimes in the near future. This search engine would work well in a classroom. With the safe environments that teachers want to provide with children who are searching the Internet, Blekko would help ensure that they are yielding appropriate results. It would also be a great tool to use with parents at home when browsing the Internet with their children."

Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Help test some next-generation infrastructure - 0 views

  •  
    For the last several months, a large team of Googlers has been working on a secret project: a next-generation architecture for Google's web search. It's the first step in a process that will let us push the envelope on size, indexing speed, accuracy, comprehensiveness and other dimensions. The new infrastructure sits "under the hood" of Google's search engine, which means that most users won't notice a difference in search results. But web developers and power searchers might notice a few differences, so we're opening up a web developer preview to collect feedback

Adding a new community toolbar to your list - 0 views

  •  
    Instantly adding new community toolbars Because the community toolbar you already have was created with the Conduit platform, you can instantly add more Conduit-powered toolbars to yours without installing them as separate rows on your browser screen. That's because the new community toolbars will be found on your list, or group, of community toolbars, and you can just swap between the one showing on your browser and any one in the list.
