Cuil Jumps On The Real-Time Search Bandwagon

Make some space on the real-time search bandwagon for Cuil, which has just added real-time listings to its search results page.


As Mashable points out, Cuil seems to be following OneRiot’s lead in that its real-time results are more about the links people are sharing online rather than the actual tweets and conversations.

The interface is nice with the ability to scroll horizontally through several results, but there’s no indication where the results are coming from (is this just a Twitter crawl/API pull?) and nothing to explain what the “Hotness” bar is and how it relates to other real-time terms.

    Cuil is in a pretty interesting position. They still have money, engineering talent, and brand recognition, so they can afford to flail around for a new business model. And since they kind of blew their reputation with people who care about such things, there’s no real risk!
