I Finally Got Around to Cuiling My Blog

Posted by libhom Friday, August 01, 2008

Reading the item in Blabbeando where the author Cuiled himself, it reminded me that I should Cuil this blog. Cuil.com is a search engine that has been panned for low quality results, but which could improve since it is in its infancy, and it is run by former Google employees.

I didn't find this blog in the first 17 pages of results for the query "godless liberal homo" (without quotes). It showed up as the number one result in Google, which makes sense because I doubt anyone else would give a website a name like Godless Liberal Homo.

Oops!

I did find some listings of blogs that link to mine while going through pages Cuil search results:

Blogged

Blogrefs

Google Directory (I didn't know such a thing existed.)

Queer Filter (already knew about this one)

Maybe you will find the above listings useful in seeing how your blog is listed online. I also found a redirect to my blog on a page on www.proxy4myspace.org. Apparently, somebody wants to look at my blog at work or school where it is blocked.

A site was listed numerous times that supposedly mentioned my blog but did not. It was not clear whether it was an out of date item in Cuil's database, a spam blog, or something else.

I had done some previous testing of Cuil's results for work, and the results were as follows. For very general searches on subjects where I had little knowledge, Cuil had more useful search results than Google, largely due to a more user friendly and informative interface. But, when you try to search for specific sites or technical information, Cuil is pretty much useless.

Hope this helps you with your blogs.

  2. Interesting site! Thanks for posting. When I have more time I'm going to delve into my listings more thoroughly and figure out where they all came from!

    Right now I'm trying to find out why I get an error message when I try to get into my own blog and quite a few others! (Luckily yours worked for me!)

  4. mauigirl: The main reason you got the error code is that Cuil is in its early stages and needs a lot of work.

  6. I have never heard of Cuil.com before you posted about it.

    My little old blog is all over Yahoo and Google and Queer Listing -- to be honest, I have absolutely no idea how my blog got listed in Yahoo and Google, since as a Wordpress blog, we're prevented from commercial listings.

    In fact, I started this blog to function more as online journal for me to rant and have some fun during the dark days of the Bush administration. The idea that I've had more than 300,000 visitors since I began still kinda' blows me away.

  8. christopher: Blogging stats can be pretty amazing, especially since the ratio of lurkers to commentators is so incredibly high. I'm still amazed that I'm getting 950 unique visitors per month for a blog called "Godless Liberal Homo." I would have thought that the name of the blog alone would have frightened most people too much for them to read it.

    Also, unpaid listings on Google and Yahoo have nothing to do with advertising. Helping people find you and everyone else is the service people get in return for putting up with the advertising.
