Looks to me more like a traffic leak from Ahrefs.Link: https://www.searchenginejournal.com...ocial&utm_campaign=twitter-auto-publish#close
Pretty dumb idea. They should focus on what they are doing which is great...
What do you guys think?
I was thinking that in the back of my mind when I read it and told @eliquid that they justed opened the door to their demise... so much wasted effort in a completely backwards direction.If I was a competitor, I would LOVE hearing that one of my peers decided to "take on Google".
I don't think they will. I think its probably going to be a total fail on the consumer side.How are they going to get people to search using it though? Simply getting the publishers on board won't do much if there is no one using the search engine.
The thing is all successful service or products solve a consumer/customer problem first and that is their main focus. It’s not impossible, but companies with billions of dollars at their disposal knew that and attempted it - and failed. At least failed in terms of being better than Google.Anything like this has to solve the chicken and egg problem.
What idea did they steal? (Serious question)A company that goes around stealing ideas from others because they can't innovate on their own to boot.
