To the Cuil Management Team:
Earlier this week it was brought to my attention that you launched your new search engine. With an index of some 120 billion web pages, you claim to be the largest and most relevant search engine around. So I just took a spin over and executed a few queries. And I must say – the results are horrible.
How can a search for “SportsLizard” result in a link to my old blog that was moved over here a year ago? SportsLizard does happen to be one of the more popular collectibles sites on the web. Wouldn’t want to actually return the SportsLizard.com home page or anything…
Then a search for “sports card price guide” showed up in your auto-suggest box but yielded no results! There are only like 10 legit online sports card price guides, many of which have been around since the dawn of the internet. Don’t have those in your 120 billion pages huh? While we’re on the topic: why does a search for my name not yield this domain? Umm, this is Adam-McFarland.net? At least return the tool over on Adam-McFarland.com!
I’ll admit, you impressed me by showing PureAdapt.com when I searched “Pure Adapt”. I mean, five minutes ago that wouldn’t have done anything for me, but your results were so bad that I was actually shocked to see some accuracy. Then again, you do display a totally irrelevant skull next to our name. Wtf is up with that?
In short – your search engine sucks. Google is still FAR more relevant for 99.9% of queries. Stop hating on my company.
