2009 was a busy year at hakia. We hatched new ideas and started to worked on new products. Stay tuned for our upcoming announcements.
2010 will be an interesting year for search as Bing-Yahoo! Partnership will become effective and innovation from start-ups will continue.
We would like to invite you to an experiment we are running for fun. Please welcome nobrandsearch.com ! NoBrandSearch is an experiment to compare the core competencies of the search engines in the market. It may surprise you to see how your favorite search engine compares to other search engines in a blind test.
This is how it works: Each time you enter a query, each side of the screen is randomly selected from the four search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo! and hakia) in the market. Their brands and special features are screened out. All you have to do is to decide which set of results is better.
When you click to vote, the aggregate votes are immediately shown between the two search engines on the screen. The overall results will soon be displayed at http://nobrandsearch.com
We encourage you to test the search engines with your complex and longer queries, that’s where the challenge starts!
Join the fun & shall the search-off begin!
