BigClique utilizes a unique scalability and algorithm to compete head-to-head with the biggest names in search
New York based gRock Media Group today launched a new crawler based search engine at http://www.BigClique.com
To compete with established players like
Google, Yahoo, and MSN, BigClique debuts
with an index of a several million web sites,
and a proprietary ranking algorithm that
analyzes on-site and off-site criteria including
page text, tags, inbound links, and other
factors. BigClique.com also utilizes a "Segments"
technology which offers endless scalability,
running on a cluster of Dell Dual Xeon servers.
Said BigClique founder Femi Olu, "We have successfully built a powerful cluster of servers delivering speed, fast searches and scalability. Our technology architecture has been built from the ground up and is continuously being tweaked to keep it at the forefront of the search engine technology market."
Although the search engine industry is extremely competitive, Mr. Olu has confidence BigClique.com can carve out a niche. And though it would have been easy to simply reproduce search listings from all the other search engines using the "Meta-search" model, Mr. Olu saw many flaws in that approach. "It would take less than a week to create and complete a meta-search tool, but the truth is the user would see the same search results they see already at all the other cookie-cutter meta-search sites."
BigClique.com runs its own crawler (Daisy) and their search listings are made up from their own internal
database of submitted sites. BigClique has been building their search, crawler and database technology since Spring of 2003, and has allowed users to submit sites for crawling since March 1st 2005. The Add-URL page is located at http://www.bigclique.com/addurl/
BigClique.com purposely does not offer news, maps, weather, email or any other non-search features or information. Said Olu, "If you are looking for news go to CNN.com and BBC.co.uk, if you need maps go to Maps.com, if you need weather go to Weather.com and if you need email go to Hotmail.com. But if you want an uncluttered and satisfying search experience, come to BigClique.com."
