Vietnamese Google-killer searches like it's 1996 ? The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/16/wada_google_vietnam_search_wars/)


Alexander Smirnov, business development director of Russian search firm Ashmanov and Partners, which supplied the underlying technology, said this method of searching is in sync with Vietnamese users, especially on the mobile.

Looks a bit Metro-visual to me.

Majestic has got sod all to do with searching.

It's now morphed into a web crawler + backlinks database for SEO, spammers and the like.

But hey, it pays for the DFS sofa on interest free credit, so it's all good.

:rolleyes:

I know, that, you know that but Alexei bites best when you wind him up about having a search engine. Anyway I do try to make these links relevant to the community.

AtW is like Steve Jobs of Majestic SEO. As long as he is in charge it will continue to innovate and succeed in its marketplace.

You mean it's better at generating spam than its competitors?
And you spent your life on this? I created more useful products in my first year after university.

It doesn't generate spam. Actually it's very useful at detecting online spam from what I understand, I'm sure I read something about that a while ago... someone used it to find spammers had got them blacklisted from Google.

Instead of a simple Google-like search bar in the middle of the page, Wada also offers an extensive ‘web directory’ through which to search, divided into category (eg ‘Sport’) and sub-category (‘Football’). Users can also navigate through the directory by ‘genre’.

So what exactly is this (http://www.dmoz.org/)?

More or less :ind

I could have done better if I just invested into Google IPO :eek

But then again I would not have felt I've earned the money :smokin
