Is your website Cuil?

Ex-Googlers have just launched a new search engine called Cuil (“cool”) – and where did they come up with that wordB The name comes from a Gaelic word for “knowledge” which seems very appropriate for a search engine.

Similar to what Google is touting, not surprisingly the founders say that Cuil “indexes the web more comprehensively than anything that came before it.” Interesting to note that on the first day the engine was live, it seems as if it has already indexed 121,617,892,992 web pages. Be sure to check and see if your site is listed!

One difference that supposedly separates Cuil from Google is that the engine “can purportedly understand the context of a page and the intentions behind search requests.” Additionally, the search engine does not retain data on users a slight difference from Google maintaining a database of user information for as long as 18 months.

So you might want to check it out and see if you think it has a chance to challenge the mighty Google.
