The non-profit Search Engine & Social Network - Est 2004

Anoox search engine is the People Powered Search Engine
Anoox is a Social Search Network with many parts, with one of the Key parts (goals) being to put the immense Power of the Search Engine, the Gateway to what People Know, Think and buy, in hand of the People and small businesses. We do this via our revolutionary Search Engine, where search results are Powered by "We the People", aka Crowd Wisdom.
Here is how Anoox Crowd Wisdom based Search engine works. When Searching via Anoox Search People (YOU) can:
Move listings up. Your Votes (aka Likes) and Votes of People like you, determine the ranking of listings under Anoox search results. So the more a listing is liked for a given search, the higher it will be in the search results and vis versa.
Remove Bad (SPAMs, SCAMs, Broken, etc.) listings. Although most People are good and will do good when given the chance, it is inevitable that a Search engine Powered by the People, will attract Bad People who Submit SPAM, SCAM, SCUM. As well as Sites that are just no good, broken, etc.. We have multiple Codes to detect and remove such bad listing, but of course many bad listings still get through which only Human Eye (Mind) can detect. So, just as you can move Good listings up, you can remove Bad listings via reporting them as being Bad. Your negative reports and negative reports by other members, will then remove the Bad listings.
Review listings. You can post Reviews about listings, reviews then become part of the search results.
Submit new Sites (aka listings). You can then accept the Machine indexed Meta data for the Site, or override the Machine indexed data and provide the Meta data yourself.
To be exact, what makes Anoox Search Engine a Truly revolutionary Search Engine, based on it being the People Powered Search Engine, are these 2 KEY facts:
Our Job. It is not our Job to make the Anoox search engine results the best results. Our Job is to have developed, to upgrade, to fuel and to operate this massively complex Social Networking based Search Engine.
Your Job. It is your Job, the Crowd, to make the Anoox search results better and even the best, for a given Keyword, as per your Wisdom, and hence benefit from this search engine controlled by "We the People", aka Crowd Wisdom, since many studies have shown that Crowd Wisdom, does produce the Best Answers.
Now as revolutionary and unique as Anoox Search Engine is, being that it is the People Power Search engine, there is another unique aspect to Anoox. That is we operate Anoox on non-profit basis so to ensure that no BIG Corporate, Wall Street, interests will derail or diminish our goals regarding putting the Power of the information in hand of the People and delivering much lower cost of Advertising to small businesses.
Enormous Opportunities - Enormous Challenges
It goes without saying that Anoox offers you Enormous Opportunities, as per the facts of being the only non-profit People Powered Search Engine. But these facts also present Enormous Challenges for us. Namely, whereas Wall Street based Search engine & Social Networks get Billions and Billions from Wall Street, so that Wall Street Conglomerates can control what you think and buy, we get Zero from Wall Street because we put the enormous Power of Search Engine in your hands on Main Street and save small businesses 50 to 90% on cost of Advertising. So if you want to see this non-profit Social Search Network grow for your BENEFIT, Get Involved.
"Lots of People and Organizations are talking and complaining about too much control over information and commerce being in hands of few Wall Street Goliath Monopolies, but only Anoox non-profit Search Engine and Social Network is actually doing something about it by offering real C h o i c e"
Be the Solution. If you see something is not working correctly within Anoox, if you see a feature missing or misfiring, don't complain and whine about it to us, instead be part of the solution as a volunteer or developer.
