Million Short: A Search Engine for the Very Long Tail
Imagine a search engine that threw out the web’s top one million sites and then searched what was left. Sounds insane, right? But that’s exactly what Million Short purports to do and the results are, well, interesting.
Million Short seems like a terrible idea. Why would you want to remove the top sites on the web from your search results? In most cases you wouldn’t, but what Million Short offers is a chance to discover sites that just don’t make it to the top of the results from more popular search engines like Google, Bing or even DuckDuckGo.
To me this sounds quite intriguing, especially when searching for obscure information. This may be a very useful tool. Well worth checking out to see how well it functions.
