Has the World Gone Cool on Cuil.com?

1st Oct 2008 News, Industry News Less than a minute to read


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.
