  • The information seekers in present time spend a considerable time on the Web searching for the information from the relevant sources they are seeking. In doing so they are often presented with the information that contains irrelevant and unimportant links and this may lead to accessing of low-quality information. For a solution to this problem, blekko, one of the newest search engines helps in filtering of unhelpful sites and spam so that search results come from trusted sources.

  • The new search engine employs “slash tags” or specialized search terms that allow users to search for content within a given subject or website. When you type in your search phrase, you are then able to type in a slash tag containing the exact type of search phrases you want. The search engine also strips out results from content farms, which research trendy topics and then pay writers to pen short posts about them.

  • The new search engine is designed in such a way that it is helpful in weeding out the spam-oriented links from the search results. The search engine works on a human edited index that has been created using ‘slashes’. These are lists of trusted websites in particular categories –all searches are limited to results served in these categories.

  • The search engine also has a go at Google regarding their lack of transparency about their results algorithm .By contrast, the search engine shows extra data such as the number of inbound links, to a site, where they come from and how long they have been there.

  • When you arrive at the search engine blekkohomepage, you will notice a small blekko man mascot – a search superhero – in the lower right portion of the screen and a row of spotlighted search engine users just south of the main search box.

  • When you click on the user profiles located in the search engine, it will take you to social networking-like pages where you will find profile pictures, bios, activity pages (similar to Facebook news feed), created slash tags and the number of slash tags they are following.
