cuil v google
Just autocuiled and autogoogled to test out the new search engine.
Here’s the results
Cuil – first 22 hits – I was at number 1, 3, 4, 18,
Bizarrely my picture appears next to hits that are nothing to do with me, and other people’s pics appear next to my hits. I think that works worst for the others than for me. At 21 is some website called spoke that is selling access to another Mark Childs through their online business directory, and there’s a picture of me grinning like a loon handing over some cheque at a conference.
Incidentally the Mark Childs who has been accused of a burglary spree in Roseville is not me. I was never there officer.
Google first 20 hits – I was at 1,2,3,4,7, 15,16,20 with no confusing photos associated with the hits (and no references to burglaries). And a nice array of pictures on the image search.
All in all about 8 – 2 to Google. Cuil not so cool then.
