Blekko

Blekko is a new search engine that claims to:

  • crawl 3 billion pages of websites selected for quality, and,

  • allows users to create "slashtags" that organizes websites around specific topics or from specified lists of credible sources (credible domains).


Those who want to add their own slashtags must open a Blekko account. The primary developer of Blekko was also behind the Open Directory Project, which uses humans to select individual web pages rather than marking entire domains as reliable.
