cuil.com

I do my best to read as much news as I can, sharing the important bits so that the stories appear in the now-right-hand column here on the website. Over the last 24 hours, the big news was the launch of Cuil.com, a new search engine that many posited would soon be nipping at the heels of Google. It’s pronounced “cool”. I’m assuming that domain was taken.

Techcrunch was quick to point out that it was important not to misspell it and type www.culi.com.

While ‘traffas’ consistently returns aarontraffas.com on Google, this site returns nothing but Sweedish results, a function at the very least of not accounting for geography. When I tried “aaron traffas”, the first result was a “page not found”.

Purple Wave returned a bunch of deep links, but not one link to our home page.

It looks like it has a ways to go. Perhaps it’s currently more useful to misspell it after all.
