Blekko Search Engine Beta Version Unveiled

Blekko, a new search engine, promises users to filter spam sites.

A new search engine known as Blekko has been unveiled. In beta form, the search engine offers a feature that supposedly filters out spam sites.

The Blekko which will compete with Microsoft’s Bing and Google, will use a new technology called slashtag technology, a tool which comprises of recommended websites submitted by users which will allow the searches to be narrowed down to only the most trusted and most relevant sites, cutting out spam sites and sites of poor quality.

According to Blekko’s founder Rich Skrenta, the search engine produced the most relevant results by allowing users to create slashtags that create lists of recommended sites. Blekko has also promised users full transparency with its search ranking data, showing how it ranks sites for any particular query.

“When we started this company our goal was to build a search engine that not only let you do your usual searches but also lets you do searches that you just can’t do anywhere else,” said Skrenta
