    search for ’3 engine monte’ on blekko….

    i wonder if these results are used for improving the serps at all?

    Exactly what I was thinking Joe. I did 5 searches with 3 engine monte: I picked 3 Google results and 2 Bing results. There’s no reason to believe they aren’t going to use this data to determine which pages are the best to present in the SERPs.

    i meant try that search query. no engine finds it at all. lol

    i just wrote a book of poetry and put it on a little PDF book website, and my facebook author page. out of all the engines (google, bing, blekko, ddg, chacha, mama, etc..) only duckduckgo found anything related to it, and that was a message on my author page for the book.

    that was the week the book came out in PDF format. It took a week but Google finally found and ranked more stuff related to the book but put Twitter, Facebook, ebook store in that order.

    Bing has a message from my author profile mentioning the title at p10 but the rest of the serps are just terrible.

    blekko has nothing with the book title

    and duckduckgo is the same with my author profile at #2.

    all in all i would say for NEW content Google is still winning, although they get the order wrong they at least found all 3 major pages related to the book.

    try it yourself by searching for “poems for an unnamed girl”

    oops. looks like google, bing and duckduckgo.com are all finding it now including news results, but Blekko’s own search has no idea what 3 engine monte is and includes results from /cars.
