Blippex - wikipedia search

    Today the market of search engines is represented by quite a lot of services, the leadership among which, of course, is Google. Competitors, among which there are serious players such as Microsoft Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, DuckDuckGo, are trying to keep up with the race. But almost all of these systems have one thing in common - they try to simulate and duplicate Google’s algorithms. Someone pays attention to personalizing the search, someone cares about the anonymity and privacy of users, but everyone is trying to provide almost identical search results.

    Blippex- Wikipedia search, this is a new search engine, one of the few that do not try to clone Google. We believe that in order to be sure to compete with search leaders, it is not necessary or even necessary to provide the same search results as other systems. We believe that the desire to show almost identical results is a deterrent to the development of search engines in the last decade.

    The Blippex search engine takes a different approach to creating a search index and, as a result, a different search algorithm and ranking the results. Our idea is that the search information should be provided by the users themselves. This approach is somewhat similar to Wikipedia, but unlike Wikipedia, our users do not have to do anything manually, but can only put a special extension for the browser, which anonymously sends information about the visited pages and help us to build a searchable index and influence importance of information.

    We believe that the amount of time spent viewing a particular page or site is a good indicator of the importance and relevance of the information. We call this algorithm DwellRank. As you know, the Google search engine uses the PageRank algorithm, which is based on the analysis of the relationship between pages and sites among themselves. Of course, that DwellRank takes into account not only the time spent by the user on the page, the indicators of the number of visitors, length of content, popularity of the site as a whole are also taken into account.

    Blippex pays great attention to anonymity and privacyusers. We do not collect or store any personal information about our users. All we need to build a search engine is just the address of the page and the time spent on it. By the way, the source code of the plugins is open, so that anyone can make sure of the data that the plugin collects. For example, the Google search engine cannot boast of anonymity, because personalization of search results and advertising are the main business and revenue of the corporation. Moreover, every month we post a dump of our database for free access.

    More recently, we have taken another step towards greater anonymity - we have provided the peer-2-peer (WebRTC) network option for our extension for the Chrome browser. The main goal of the innovation is to ensure greater anonymity of data on visits to any page. In our case, instead of sending directly to the server, the information will first pass through a random number of other clients, which will make it impossible to find out the original sender.

    At the moment, the service is in beta stage, every day we have about 50 thousand unique visits and about 400 - 500 thousand search queries. The search index is 10 million pages. Some search queries may still produce unexpected results, but we are working hard to improve our algorithms. Anyone can help us by installing our extension. A variety of data helps us to better customize the search itself and of course provide the best results. In any case, the launch of the Blippex search engine gave rise to many lively discussions and discussions and made it clear to us that such a product has a future, because people tend to trust what is created by simple people for ordinary people, and while we are actively working on improving search algorithms and on new functionality.
