From a team including ex-Google staff, an alternative search engine:
Rather than rely on superficial popularity metrics, Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance. When we find a page with your keywords, we stay on that page and analyze the rest of its content, its concepts, their inter-relationships and the page’s coherency.
Cuil seems to update less frequently than Google, and we all tend to like what we know, but you may find Cuil worth a look. Try this for example.
