I didn't see what I wanted so I put in my company name. Nope, not there either. Hmmmmm, been here 20 years now and Google and yahoo have no problem finding me.
Even the name sucks.

"Some reasons might be...
* a typo. Please check your spelling.
* your search includes a term that is very rare. Try to find a more common substitute.
* too many search terms. Please try fewer terms.
Finally, try to think of different words to describe your search."

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

Either way, you're still going to have to click through a bunch of junk to find what you want.
BTW, there is free software available from Surf Canyon (http://www.surfcanyon) that makes search better and faster by re-ranking Google, Yahoo! and MSN on the fly.
How many times have you enter a search on Google or Cuil and get millions of results, there has to be something valuable beyond page one. Digging through all those pages, however, is too time-consuming, so few people do it.
Surf Canyon helps solve this problem. The technology observes your actions as you search, automatically figures out what it is that you want and then, on the fly, digs as deep as page 100 the search results and fetches it for you. It's like a search engine for the search results.

Cultural: Read their privacy statement and rejoice! "Do No Evil Google" has been caught multiple times fudging, if not outright lying, regarding its policies and methods. And DNEG seems at the same game again with its approach to the so-called "Inet Fairness" nonsense. So, as with other vendors of note, one can wish for successful competition against a company that practice NOT what it preaches.

ixquick stores only the information that you tell it to such as preferences. It collects results from a number of search engines and combines them.
Scroogle routes your search through their servers so that Google doesn't have any records of you, and, of course, Scroogle destroys all tracks within 48 hours.
Both of them allow you to use SSL. I don't know about Cuil yet, though.

Cuil - not the best choice for a name but it has a unique, professional appearance and it is very functional.
Cuil will be a valued addition to the select searches available at gooplusplus.com
There are no perfect searches but Cuil definitely belongs in the top rung of search sites.
