Wikipedia Founder Launches Google Rival Wikia

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Eric Auchard, Jul 31, 2007


Quote:
Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales said on Friday he is putting the building blocks in place for a community-developed Web search service that would rival search engines such as Google or Yahoo.
Quote:
The new Wikia search service will combine computer-driven algorithms and human-assisted editing when the company launches a public version of the search site toward the end of 2007, Wales said in a phone interview.
Quote:
Wikia has raised $14 million in outside financing, including its latest round of $10 million from Amazon.com, according to a regulatory filing by the company.

Everytime I search for something on google the wiki link is ALWAYS the first 3 links, I will keep using google for as long as I live.

Yahoo isnt even in the picture anymore. Google is by far the most used search engine, and I doubt people will switch to a new site.

It will most likely be a site decked full of adds, or a bunch of extras what I hate. Google is nice and clean.

I like the different things you can do on live search. They're Image Search owns Google's. But I use Google for a lot of quick word searches.
