    You are missing the bottomline for SEARCH Industry. God damn "SIMPLICITY".

    Heavy graphics and putting fancy CSS on pages aint gonna make you a leader. Concentrate on quality of results not how you present it.

    It was just released today. We should wait and see: Rome wasn't built in one day. :)

    A serious alternative for google would force it to improve its results.

    BTW, is there a way to submit links, sitemaps, etc?

    well, Google has many years now, it wasn't that good when it started..and it gets tweaks every day...give it a chance, reviews it after some months...everybody who makes a search engine knows that Google is hard to beat..and the guys behind Cuil surely have a plan, they are not stupid..money are invested in this type of practice

    Here are some links to some details behind Cuil:

    For me the info is spread way too thin. A lot of screen real estate is taken up for only a few results. Another downside is that the website titles are truncated and I tend to use these as the main way of determining which sites interest me before reading further/ clicking on them.

    Strange results too - some of the sites appear again on page 1, 2, 3 and so on. Also my site came up with someone else's pic.

    Long way to go.

    Promising start though - and always nice to see someone trying something different.

    With $33 million to play with, they are bound to improve.
    After all, they have only been "live" for less than 24 hours!

    Well Cuil has a frontpage article on CNN.com .. I am sure they are a bit overloaded now but still first impressions are everything.. When I got on earlier today (when it was up) I was able to see a lot more results in the search that I could see last night.. Maybe they are working out some bugs.

    I don't know. It looks like something an individual made on a short budget.

    33 million in venture capital? I wonder how well this story was sourced. Perhaps someone is pulling our leg...

    With that kind of investment, I would think it would be a lot better than it is, even on day one. Some of the stuff not working is pretty darn basic, broken links to main pages and stuff. Not to mention some pretty awful search results.

    It was a big mistake of them to go live with results this crappy.

    I doubt the next search engine will come from Google alumni. You need people with a completely new mindset.

    I don't think they were ready for all the traffic from the Press release.

    Did PR tell the engineers they were going to issue a Press release?

    The press release stated that they would go live on monday so some of you look last night may have tried when they were not ready.

    I think PR needs to work with the engineers more this kind of thing happens a lot

    Starting in such a competitive niche, they should do it good in the first place.
    The idea can be good, but if I search and get no results for keywords that should give tousands and ten tousands of results, that is weird, and I do not see the added value of the ex google employees and other. It sux, it does not work. period.

    Cuil doesn't even rank for it's own site when you type in Cuil. It's algorithm has to take newer sites into account somehow.

    I keep getting the following error:

    No results because of high load...

    Due to excessive load, our servers didn't return results. Please try your search again.

    I personally don't think cuil is anything to write home about. I did several queries and didn't get a SINGLE relevant result.

    I understand every new engine needs tweaking but some of the results are really bad. Didn't anyone see the CNN anchor this morning run a query on herself and it popped up a picture of a lady from the 1800s?

    The pictures are a cool idea, but everything right now is not even close to relevant....
