Just tried out new search engine Cuil to see what all the fuss is about – the query string I entered: Photographic Wedding Invitations.
So, not quite what you’d expect from Cuil, given their self-proclaimed status as “the world’s biggest search engine” then.
The Internet has grown exponentially in the last fifteen years but search engines have not kept up—until now. Cuil searches more pages on the Web than anyone else—three times as many as Google and ten times as many as Microsoft.
So claims the blurb on the Cuil website, but their 121,617,892,992 indexed web pages don’t include any results for a search query Google returns 3,770,000 for (with one of my sites ranked No. 1 – at least when searching from my computer within Ireland 🙂 ).
Incidentally, Cuil also draws a blank for the search term Wedding Invitations Ireland, and putting in just Wedding Invitations takes and age before the SERPs are returned. Makes you wonder whether they’ve launched before they’re really ready.
Is Cuil a Google killer. Current evidence would suggest not!
So, for now at least, I’ll be sticking with the big G. And, thankfully for our wedding invitation business, I think so will the majority of the web-searching public.
