    We’re seeing our traffic improving here at Lycos.com as well. I think #2 on Rich’s list above is partly due to the increase in addition to our new design which improved the user experience across devices.

    Yes, I do like Blekko’s SEO tools – especially for a fast and dirty analysis on the spot. :)

    Do you think slashtags will drive some SEO techniques and processes in the future?

    Compare search result of “yoba linda rite aid toys”, can you tell Blekko search results are copied from Bing? If Bing prevent Blekko from copying search results, what will happen to Blekko search quality?

    Dissatisfaction with Google? I’ve never tried this way.

    That’s amazing growth.  I used Blekko a few months ago but I didn’t see that kind of growth happening for them.

    The traffic may be increasing, but it doesn’t register in  comparison with Google usage.

    This seems to be based on a  Blekko press release. If you’re not a fan of Google, the real story isn’t the challenge posed by Blekko by the patent disputes and by Facebook, both of which have been featured in the media in the UK in the past few days as I’ve described at:

    I’m not surprised,  I find the slash mark commands quite useful.

    Not copying, using them. I believe that Yahoo BOSS is/was open to third parties which in turn was bought out by Microsoft in that whole take over deal. You can sign-up for a developers account and use Bing’s results via an API, which is pretty much what Yahoo BOSS was.

    You see that Blekko uses Bing/Yahoo’s results as a back-up which explains your test query.

    DuckDuckGo is also built on Bing/Yahoo’s results.

    I am using DuckDuckGo just because of their outstanding privacy policy, Google has a lot to learn regarding privacy and Blekko to my understanding is about the same in that regard, no thank you.

    Caitlin, blekko’s privacy policy is much better than Google’s. Check out  http://searchengineland.com/blekko-will-keep-user-data-48-hours-76871/ — and if you’d like the highest level of privacy, click on your prefs at blekko and click the SuperPrivacy box.

    I love Blekko, because of their SEO Tools

  • http://www.herbisto.com/ Herbisto

    You know I never used Blekko, and have been using DuckDuckGo in the past few months. Thanks to this article, I’ve actually found some of the really cool tools available for SEO in Blekko. They have done a great job at integrating both regular users, and webmasters.

    We should all take lessons from CEO Skrenta about capitalizing on good timing and opportunity to grow our brands. This is a great reminder to always be seeking out opportunities for growth in and around your niche.

    Rock on Blekko. Rock on! Google’s pushed the big red PAUSE button for me with their latest “quality update”. Man, finding all kinds of empty pages or pages with one or two words or a couple of sentences. It’s like some short-traders paid Google to dig their own grave.
