Highlights for Q1

We’ve missed you on this here blog, so we are excited to share what’s been going on at blekko these past few, busy months.

1. Conferences. The roadshows have been a blast, with blekko representing at SMX West, the RSA Conference, SXSW, and Computers in Libraries (CIL). We enjoy meeting users and telling the uninitiated all about blekko. We have gotten great feedback on our site, and our privacy policy has been receiving a lot of love.

2. Mozilla Add-On. We recently released a FireFox plugin that allows some of blekko’s coveted search features to be used on any other search engine. The plugin lets you mark spam sites, look at SEO data and backlinks, and sort results by date. Try it out and let us and Mozilla know what you think.

3. Partners. Around here, we love collaboration and our latest partners are 1-800-Flowers and Lavasoft. 1-800-Flowers is lending their expertise to curate awesome sites for the /flowers and /gift-baskets slashtags.

In addition to our commitment to spam-free search, we’ve teamed up with Lavasoft to help us determine which sites are unsafe. blekko will also be powering search for Lavasoft’s ad-aware product.

4. Slashtags. Our content editors are dedicated to curating the best of the web to deliver relevant, high quality search results. We always have slashtags and how to improve search on the brain. Here are a few recent slashtags we are proud of: “mls listings /real estate”, “resume writing tips /jobs”, and “boba fett /star-wars”.

Our team of engineers continues to work hard behind the scenes to make blekko the game-changing search engine, so stay tuned. “Like” our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter to stay updated on new developments and check out photos from our latest adventures.
