120 Billion Web Pages Indexed by Cuil

Cuil's methods guarantee online privacy for searchers, says CEO

'Our significant breakthroughs in search technology have enabled us to index much more of the Internet, placing nearly the entire Web at the fingertips of every user,' said Tom Costello, CEO and co-founder of Cuil, a new search offering that claims to have indexed 120 billion Web pages, three times more than any other search engine.

"In addition, Cuil presents searchers with content-based results, not just popular ones, providing different and more insightful answers that illustrate the vastness and the variety of the Web," added Costello, who hails from Drogheda, Ireland.

According to Costello, the Web continues to grow at a fantastic rate and other search engines are unable to keep up with it. He should know: he researched and developed search engines at Stanford University and IBM. He col-leads Cuil with his wife, Anna Patterson - best known for her work at Google, where she was the architect of the company's large search index and led a Web page ranking team.

Together with former colleague Russell Power, Costello and Patterson founded Cuil "to give users the opportunity to explore the Internet more fully and discover its true potential."

"Since we met at Stanford, Tom and I have shared a vision of the ideal search engine," said Anna Patterson, President and COO of Cuil. "Our team approaches search differently. By leveraging our expertise in search architecture and relevance methods, we've built a more efficient yet richer

search engine from the ground up. The Internet has grown and we think it's time search did, too." Cuil's methods guarantee online privacy for searchers. Since the search engine ranks pages based on content instead of number of clicks, personal data collection is unnecessary, so personal search history is always private.

Summary of Cuil's features, according to the company:

  • Biggest Internet search engine - Cuil has indexed 120 billion Web pages, 3X more than any other search engine
  • Organized results - Cuil's magazine-style layout separates results by subject and allows further search by concept or category
  • Different results - Unlike other search engines, Cuil ranks results by the content on each page not its popularity
  • Complete privacy protection - Cuil does not keep any personally identifiable information on users or their search histories.
