Wikia Search Launches

January 7, 2008 · Print This Article

There has been a flurry of largely negative postings about the newly launched alpha of Wikia Search - Jimmy Wales’ human powered search engine. I’ve bookmarked quite a few at, which will pop up on this blog around midnight tonight.

Phil Bradley has a nice little summary though:

Results are fairly basic, with a title, summary, URL, cached version and some sort of rating. Here’s the one for the top ranking site relating to Web 2.0 - see if you can work out what it means! That is so going to keep the SEO bods intrigued. There’s also a star rating system, which you can click on, but you get a message saying that they don’t actually do anything yet. Please - either make them do something or take them away until they are ready to do something.
