Hakia: semantic search engine

31 08 2008

Recently came accros a “new” search engine on the web called HAKIA. Presently in Beta version (so has been Google since it came out…) it proposes search based on relevancy and not in popularity. Theoretically it will provide most accurate results. I tried a couple of searches and got interesting results for the string “geotag garmin eTrex” and a 0 resultset when searched for a more specific string “hp c01120002” (fyi is an error code for an HP laptop). Right now, I can’t tell you if it is good. I can tell you though, that usually competition pushes the market and the goodies output, so I’ll stay tunned and keep Hakiaing for a while… lets see how far it’ll go 😉
