So There’s a new search engine on the block. It’s called cuil. And upon searching for ‘not so impressive entertainers‘ I noticed they found my little blog well enough, but sitting next to the link, was this image :
Obviously I was a tad confused, so I went to the FAQ to find out what was going on, I found the following :
7. You have images beside your results. How do you pick which pictures to use?
We know from our research that people can make better and quicker decisions about relevance and quality when they can see an image from the website. We do our best to take images from Web pages that accurately reflect the content of the website. Many websites are full of images, so we use advanced algorithms to determine the best image to show the user.
So there you go. Bees, sitting buy a pool accurately reflect the content of my blog. Thankyou Cuil for that wonderful review. I’m glad advanced algorithms are just as effective as they always have been.
update – It seems I’m not the only one who had strange images appearing next to them..Apparently searching for information on a particular researcher, the viewer was presented with some lovely gay porn. Now that’s “cuil”. ( Not Entirely Safe for Work Link )
