The Findxa is a new type of search engine with an algorithm that differs from that of Google, Bing, Yahoo and other typical search engines. This search tool has been designed to deliver only the most relevant and highest quality results based on a user’s search.
The company believes in the 80/20 rule of business. 80% of the content online is duplicated, re-blogged, reposted or plagiarized. This makes it hard for Internet users to find relevant content from the myriad of spam content. Findxa targets the 20% of the websites that actually deliver high quality content.
What does it do?
The goal of Findxa is to give exposure to the 20% of websites that are diligently working hard towards delivering relevant content to users. To do this, Findxa employs actual humans who manually analyze websites, accept the relevant sources and add them to their database. The fact that this is done by a team of actual human beings and not a robot is what makes Findxa unique.
Why is it different?
Findxa was created with the understanding that the Internet is crowded with all sorts of content most of which are inaccurate. To step into the breach, the developers created a trustworthy search engine. All the results here are based on genuine websites that are not only reputable but also experienced.
The search engine strives to provide users with the most relevant search results as well as entire pages of useful results. All the results are relevant to your search with most of the results coming from news sites, reputable blogs and many more verified sources. What is more is that you will see how many shares a post has and when it was last updated.
Findxa further makes it easier to refine your search. Unlike other search engines that give you general filter options such as ‘Videos’, ‘images’ and ‘web’, the filters on Findxa are more specific and relevant. You can filter the results based on the Latest, Trending (within the past 48 hours) or Most Popular content. This is ideal if you are looking for the latest or the trending stories.
The key aspect that distinguishes Findxa from other search engines is how the results are presented. To start with, you will not find duplicate content on this search tool. Spam and Junk content is filtered out and preference given to websites producing high-quality materials. This is different from the likes of Yahoo, Bing and Yahoo who give preference to sites with the highest traffic and the most content with the assumption that such content is of high value.
Who and why should you use it?
Are you tired of poor search results on Yahoo, Google, Bing and other search engines where preference is given to the most shared content and ones with high traffic? If yes, then Findxa is the search engine for you. It is a search engine where you will never need to search for great content more than once.
Findxa caters to sports fans, college students and researchers, bloggers and anyone who needs to find quality content without weeding through hundreds of irrelevant online sources and contradicting content. This search engine has been created to make it next to impossible not to find what you need.
Just like other search engines, you have to use certain keyword phrases to find what you need. You will get a list of relevant websites under the ‘All’ tab. In my experience, as you start refining your search using the available filters, the results tend to get irrelevant.
In my search for ‘Fast and the Furious’ (the American movie franchise), the immediate results under the ‘All’ tab were relevant but completely irrelevant under the ‘Latest’, and ‘Trending’ filters. Only a single relevant result showed under the ‘Most Popular’ filter. The case was the same for several other unrelated searches.
Other than that, some searches are relevant under all filters. The search for ‘Barrack Obama’, for example, brought back relevant and current results under all filters. The results with the most shares were given preference under the ‘Trending’ and ‘Most Popular’ filters.
Findxa is a new search engine (with only 1500 websites added and 1.5 million results in the database) that strives to improve user experience by bringing back the most relevant searches. The fact that the sources are manually indexed could be the reason behind the incomprehensive search results on some searches. Hopefully, with time, this will improve.
How to use it and the ease of use
Findxa is easy to use. It is search-oriented hence the simple interface. Currently, there are no distracting Ads or irrelevant recommendations on the sides as it is the case with most search engines. You can also create an account under ‘My Interests’ to check back for special interest feeds from your favorite websites. This is a great feature considering most people forget to bookmark the websites they love.
After logging in, you can submit your website for review.
Benefits to Website Owners
Submitting your websites to Findxa could benefit your website by increasing traffic. If you offer high quality content, you will increase your chances of being found since this search engine has an algorithm that filters out the junk and spam sites that may hurt your visibility. The platform can also help establish your brand through free advertising.
In my opinion, Findxa is a great choice if you are interested in facts over hearsay. All the sources are vetted and only high quality content is listed. This search engine is ideal if you are searching for news stories rather than the typical general articles. Most of the sources are from reputable news sites.
Simply put, with Findxa, you will get to weed out the junk and spam. Only the content that matters, regardless of the traffic it gets, is listed. All in all, Findxa is not yet sufficient enough to warrant the ditching of Google and the likes but it will sure offer you a great way to access additional sources of information with ease.
