Blekko search has been in invitation-only beta for months and three years overall in the making. Today the general public gets their first look.
The most significant upgrade to Blekko’s search engine is the addition of slashtags that auto-fire for queries that fall into one seven categories: health, colleges, autos, personal finance, lyrics, recipes and hotels. Every time a Blekko user’s query is determined to be in one of these categories, Blekko will automatically append the associated slashtag to the query and limit results to just the subset of URLs that fall under that slashtag.

Anyone besides me note that much of blekko is obtained from archive. org? (space inserted)
My "niche" is pretty narrow, really narrow, and most of the wannabes died 10 years back, yet those pages are indexed. Nothing wrong with that, just wonder which 3 billion pages are being offered for search...
