Welcome to younanimous.

Great… Another search engine.

Boy do we hear ya, and what makes us think that this has any chance of being better than the all-mighty search gods Google, Yahoo and MSN? Its easy actually. Younanimous is a new twist on a old idea. For years now, sites have existed as “meta search engines” which would search Google, Yahoo and MSN. The problem with these search engines was they were unfeasably slow, as they had to query Google, Yahoo, and MSN before they had anything to display.

Enter Younanimous: With an AJAX backbone, YOU Search Google, MSN, and Yahoo and let us know what you found and then we rank them for you, while providing additional detail about each result such as Alexa ranking, Google Pagerank, domain age and much more.

So what, it’s a fast meta search engine. Who cares? Wait, there’s more… Not only are we a meta search engine, but we also have a passive voting system in place. Today, everyone is familiar with sites like Digg and Shoutwire. These sites let the users decide what is a good story, and what’s not. We are applying this same principle to search results without having to go through all that work of clicking buttons to vote for a site’s “coolness”. Here’s a example. You do a search for “Social Search Engine” and you click the first result. It’s not what you were looking for at all, and is therefore not a useful result for your query. You press the back button and try result #2. Voila! You found exactly what you are looking for. But it’s more than that. Younanimous is analyzing these results and has cast a vote for you, automatically, saying that result #1 wasn’t what you wanted, but #2 was. If you do however find a awesome site, You can manually vote for it as well.

Ever find sites that never have the info you want, but are always at the top of the serps? Yes, we are looking at you Experts-Exchange.com… Well, now you can blacklist pages or entire domains from showing up in your listings, No more crap! And say goodbye to spam. With a “Spam!” Tag, you can help eliminate bogus results from the serps one spam site at a time.

Dont take our word for it, try this. Do a Google, MSN, or Yahoo search for a common spammer term. Viagra would be a good test. Look at how on these engines, spam just takes up all the spots. Now try it on Younanimous. You will be hardpressed to find anything unofficial, and thats why Younanimous works.

Another cool thing is that you don’t need a account to enjoy all the awesomeness of Younanimous. It’s all stored in a cookie! Of course, you can create one if you want to, and share your settings at work and gramma’s house, but it’s totally up to you!

But theres more! Amazing coolness awaits as you can develop your own widgets and algorithms based upon your searches! Do you value Alexa rank more than life itself? Now you can have the sites with the highest Alexa rank at the top! What about a combination of Google Pagerank and Alexa? That works also! Domain age? Yep. Del.icio.us links? Yep. Digg homepaged? Yep. You name it, you can have it.

And finally, We know we dont even ‘come close’ to being as cool as Google. Fact is, we wouldnt exist without the fantastic work of Google, MSN, and Yahoo. So props to you big companys who have made the web what it is. We salute you!

  1. I just tonight found you guys off one of my feeds. I so agree with you on Google. What those two guys did for search is nothing short of amazing but it has become such the holy grail of SEO that if you’re not one of the REALLY BIG guys you don’t stand a chance in showing up any where close to the front of the line. I’ve seen that Live Search has addressed this with some success. But what you’re doing is even better. Combining the top three and then factoring in user results is awsome. I will use your service and promote it. Good Luck!
