    Nice atempt at advertising... In all honesty, good luck taking on the giant.

    It is clear that Google will continue to dominate the search engine industry. It does control 80% of the market and generated 25 Billion dollars last year.

    From a business perspective...Do you think that the market is wide-open with regards to the Search Engine Industry? You and I would certainly agree that just 1% of 25 Billion is still not bad to revenue share with its users.

    Just throwing out some thoughts. I appreciate your feedback.

    I have to register to view a video presentation?

    All the best with this though, competiton for Google has to be a good thing, and it all counts.

    The name says "copy cat". Trying to be a name like google, similar to google, sounds like google, but isn't google. A bit like all those ebid, ebuy etc websites.

    And I was kind of interested but you've lost me with 2 pages of text that I can't skim read, and a registration process that requires information that you've not told me how to get.

    Normally google, but have ended up using Yahoo for the past couple of weeks because my sister has set it as the home page on the laptop. Have to admit i find it a bit frustrating, but then I have at least read some of the news this week.

    Kind regards

    I usually use Google. There is a lot of competition though for 1% of a very lucrative market. Maybe specialist search engines, concentrating on certain sectors only, are the way to go.

    you mean it generated 25 billion for itself.

    It would be interesting to know how much it generated in business on a global scale.

    Sorry that I have no control over the registration process, however once registered President Steve Duval presents in detail how the search engine will function.

    I stopped reading when I read that Google was the pioneer of search engines :(

    I used to optimise for Altavista (who were THE search engine before google), Alltheweb, hotbot, lycos to name a few. Then we had metacrawlers like dogpile.

    If you want to be taken seriously by people in the know, then I suggest you r company revisits its opening statement.

    For sure, Google changed the world with regard search, but to say they are the pioneers is plain wrong.

    Anyhow,. that said, if you restructure the argument it will actually help you to sell the concept.

    e.g.

    In 1998 there were many search engines, yahoo, hotbot, Lycos, All the web, Whatyouseek, and of course the mighty Altavista! Where are they now?

    Google has changed the face of search, it came along with a new concept in search technology, and changed the way we search.

    Roll on to 2009, and experience the next big change in search ... yada yada yada

    By taking that approcah you have called on historical facts to launch the concept, and more importantly the belief that top search engines can be toppled.

    just my 2p
