After three years of strenuous research and development, with 8000 private beta testers and investment of $20 million, Blekko made its debut today joining the list of search engines on the internet.
Blekko, a new search engine that is in testing phase, is being touted as having some primary ingredients that lack in the giant search engine, Google, and that is human touch.
Another key factor that is the hallmark of Blekko is that it has the capability of cleaning up the web searches by only displaying those top results from the websites it deems trustworthy since the web has increasingly become saturated with websites storing spams.
On Monday, Blekko launched a public beta, opening its doors to all and sundry.
Although in its initial stages, Blekko might not be a strong contender to Google, but given its claim that 11.5 percent of its users have opted to use Blekko on weekly basis; it is a good omen for the new search engine.
