Has the World Gone Cool on Cuil.com?

by Lucy Griffiths on 1st October 2008

Back in July, we posted the fact that new search engine, Cuil, had launched.

I thought it would be interesting to see how Google Trends was showing take up of this new search engine:

Google Trends as at 1st October 2008

Google Trends as at 1st October 2008

Frustratingly, Google Trends won’t report the trend for Google.com but I think it a fairly safe assumption to say it’s a lot, lot higher!

It would be great to see another search engine come along as a serious rival to Google but a search I performed today within cuil.com for our own site, still has what would appear to be a competitors logo as ‘our thumbnail’! In fact most of the images on display appear have no connection to the site they have been associated with.

It is a real shame when gloss gets in the way of substance.

    By way of an update, TechCrunch have just reported – http://techcrunch.com/2010/09/19/cuils-fails-acquired/ – that Cuil has failed to be acquired and all of its employees told to go home.

    Looks like breaking in to the search engine space and making any kind of headway is going to require very, very deep pockets. Perhaps it will take over from Premiership football as the next money pit!
