Hello there,
Dont know if this is in the right category but I give it a try.

WebmasterWorld is a great forum, but what Im looking for is a good resource/forum for searchengine developers, if it even exist one. When I search on google I just find SEO forums. Anyknow know of what Im looking for? Or why not open a category here at WebmasterWorld for searchengine developers?

Thanks

don't know why you couldn't talk about it in this forum..

are you talking of developing a search engine as in software or using software to build a viable search engine business and the marketing/management thereof?

Im talking about the development stage of a search engine, a place to talk and read about ranking methods, datamining, database structure and so on.
And of course WebmasterWorld is a great place for that, but just want to know if there is any other site for just search dev.

Jimworld used to have a forum name "Running Your Own Search Engine or Directory", but it was unfortunately closed.

Searchenginewatch has a "Search Technology & Relevancy" forum.

I and Fischerlaender ones tried to start such a forum ( [sirdf.com...] ) , but had to little time to invest into it. Maybe we ought to try again.

Hi Phoog, I'm looking for the same sort of forum, a forum on search technologies (technical) and development. Maybe we can make this the forum since WebmasterWorld is a pretty established venue already.

I'm developing tools to increase query relevancy.

I just started on this project about a month ago (mainly heavy research right now), however, I intend to make this my focus for at least the next year.

If you find anything else let me know.

But I plan to particpate more in this Alternative Search Engines forum.

Superpower,

I've been in your position for the last two/three months. Very little out there on search engine development - as you say, much of it is SEO stuff. I find some of the Lucene/Nutch mailing lists can be useful.

runarb - haven't come across your site, but it looks just like the kind of thing I've spent a long time looking for!

Simon

Also Dataparksearch and Mnogosearch forums and mailing lists are quite active. Development with Dataparksearch seems to occur daily.

Yes, it would be nice having a forum here to discuss general search development, the differences of what is out there, capabilities, etc.

Hi the first thing you need to do is work out the method by which you will score websites and webpages.
then you need to build the software to do that.
Most search engines are developed by companies or people who don't need to share the way we develop search engines, otherwise everyone would start to make one.

Just imagine what would happen if Google were to release the source code for Google?

My company is at present we are working on the code for a search engine that tracks the items for sale on a website directly back to the people where you get your stock from, the stuff you sell or supply via your website, then we will cut out the middleman and direct the visitors to them and then slice a few percent for ourselves.
A search for "rice" now points to a phone number of the farmer who grows the stuff. Grin!
I think they call it the competitive edge..

Think of how competitive and advanced the market would be if google DID give its search code away. Who cares if clones would pop up, only those that enhance & extend the services/code would survive and thus create technology growth in search rather than a polution of search (which already exists today with PPC feeds)

Yes it may seem to be an Answer but with clones arriving on the scene the direction of things would fall over.
I dare say the PPC market may have suffered but I used to get about ten emails a day from PPC sites offering me first choice of a Keyword for a price.
That market couldn't work because too many were on the scene at the same time.
Competitive edge needs to work in an open market place.

The ISEDN.org is a group of search engines gathered by exact seek and there is some chat about developement on there. I am very interested and run a couple of small search engines.

Lot of subjects mention sql full text searching etc and built in ranking systems. I think creating your own se is great fun and have been doing it for years!
