As I have a vested interest in web search I love to follow new search engines, particularly those such as Blekko that have the staff, funding and resources to make a real go at becoming a household search tool. But I just can’t take them serious because of one thing. Blekko still lists anphicle.org for the search query ‘anphicle’ instead of anphicle.com.
That isn’t to say I’m the most important thing to the Internet but what it does say is if this isn’t right, I can’t trust the rest of it. Anphicle.org doesn’t exist so what else are they listing? Plus it redirects to .com of which there is no mention. And yes I know very few people are searching for ‘anphicle’. Those who know who I am know where to find me.
I wrote to Blekko on Twitter last summer about it and credit to them they replied and said they would look into it, then in November I wrote about Blekko’s public launch and mentioned the same then. Now nearly a year later it is still a problem. C’mon guys!
