I gave Blekko a good trial, but it’s not quite ready. It’s noticeably slower than Google, and the results aren’t as good for non-programming queries. Obviously this is highly subjective, and it makes sense that my programming queries would be better since I took the time to customize them. There’s still potential here though. I suspect that Blekko will succeed, and I will certainly try them again in a few months.
Also, it seems that Stack Overflow results are appearing higher up on Google than they were just a few weeks ago. Is it possible that the leech sites are getting what they deserve in their page rank?
