Blekko: A New Search Approach
My March 2011 Online On the Net "Blekko: A New Search Approach" is up and is even freely available on the Online site. Bear in mind that this was written a few months ago, but I will say that Blekko surprised me, both for the reasons I found to use it and the reasons not to. To summarize, rather than using Blekko as a general web search engine, I really like the ability to use Blekko to research the web itself, exploring link patterns, ranking the data, and even searching my Facebook friends' likes (see yesterday's post). The amount of data that Blekko makes available from the seo link that points to search engine optimization data is impressive, plus Blekko has its own cache and link searches. So if you would like to read more, take a look at "Blekko: A New Search Approach."
