Cuil launches saying it is the largest Internet index around
A new Internet search engine service claims to be the biggest of them all, with over 120 billion indexed pages ready for search.

Cuil (pronounced Cool) is a technology company pioneering a new approach to search and have just introduced its search offering, which combines the biggest Web index with content-based relevance methods, results organized by ideas, and complete user privacy.

The company says its databases indexes 120 billion web pages, three times more than any other search engine. The new service is being introduced just a few days after Google announced their bots have spidered more than 1 trillion web pages. Some pointed that even though 1 trillion pages were counted, estimates are that Google itself only indexes 40 billion pages.

Cuil provides organized and relevant results based on Web page content analysis. The search engine goes beyond search techniques of link analysis and traffic ranking to analyze the context of each page and the concepts behind each query. It then organizes similar search results into groups and sorts them by category.

Results are displayed in a richer way, organized b features, such as tabs to clarify subjects, images to identify topics and search refining suggestions to help guide users to the results they seek.

"The Web continues to grow at a fantastic rate and other search engines are unable to keep up with it," said Tom Costello, CEO and co-founder of Cuil. "Our significant breakthroughs in search technology have enabled us to index much more of the Internet, placing nearly the entire Web at the fingertips of every user. In addition, Cuil presents searchers with content-based results, not just popular ones, providing different and more insightful answers that illustrate the vastness and the variety of the Web."

Cuil's technology was developed by a team with extensive history in search. The company is led by husband-and-wife team Tom Costello and Anna Patterson. Mr. Costello researched and developed search engines at Stanford University and IBM; Ms. Patterson is best known for her work at Google, where she was the architect of the company's large search index and led a Web page ranking team. Together with former colleague Russell Power, they founded Cuil to give users the opportunity to explore the Internet more fully and discover its true potential.
