He raised $ 55 million from investment funds. Now the search engine Blekko, born a year ago, is ready to demonstrate its qualities. Google is different, although the search page is simple and minimalist, like that of the most famous engine. The main feature of Blekko are the slashtags. That is the possibility of carrying out targeted searches. After the searched terms you can add a bar and then indicate to the engine to find those terms only in particular categories of sites, for example / news, / blogs, /amazon. The founders' idea is to clean up the results from the " spam "or rather unwanted results. Another peculiarity is that Blekko integrates the social world into the results, in particular it also analyzes the comments on Facebook and

also announced the integration with Twitter. The dream is to create an effective search engine that intrigues the automated analysis with and opinions, with people's advice. The road is still long, Blekko indexes 3.5 billion urls, against Google's 15 billion.
