The way it is different from other search engines is, they only provides the search results for the keywords, where as Anoox services lot of other features such as classifieds, Socil N/W, a Forum site, a Blogging site, a search submission site, a bookmarking website, an article publishing and so on.... makes Anoox as unique and a 1 stop SEO solutions for startups

Yes, very well said. I agree.
From its search engine where "we the people" control the search results based on crowd wisdom, to its uber cool and fast Chat where we can exchange messages World wide instantly and from our Mobile phone or PCs, it is simply awesome.
I tell you here in Wien, when I tell them about Anoox and show them the Site, my colleagues are all saying: "Das ist Wunderbar" and all wondering, as I do, how come they have not heard about int before!

You are completely missing the point of Anoox if you think it is "community to make backlinks". Actually Anoox is not a backlinks at all. Du besser dein augen errofnen und Schau genauer hin :)

Anoox started in 2004. This you can see by just looking up :)
I actually know who started it since I saw his presentation about Anoox in Berlin at this place called BetaHause during the BetaPitch. The founder or co-founder is this Internet Mythos with name of Dean Ansari, who has been in the Internet industry since the start of the Interne in 1996. He created some of the 1st Web chat and VoIP etc.. The guy is a freaking genius. I mean to create this massive site with no Wall Street Money and on non-profit basis. WOW!
"Why is it different than the other search engines?" Are you kidding Me! It is a search engine & social network like non-other. For a great expose of this see the Donate section. Also see the About Us & What is Anoox, but 4 sure also see Donate section.

Anoox means people on Main Street controlling the search results vs Google means Big business on Wall Street controlling the search results.
Anoox means meeting new clients by paying it forward and putting sharing above taking.
Anoox means much lower cost traffic fur your Site.

My frnd although Anoox may have such lofty aspirations, the fact is that average
"people on Main Street" are controlled by Wall Street Big Media, from Fox to Google to Hollywood and have no mental capacity to be controlling the search results of a search engine. Simply put, average "people on Main Street" are selfish, close minded, and self absorbed to be making any real difference via Anoox people powered search engine. average "people on Main Street"only care about Me not We.

This really summarizes why and how this Anoox is so freaking awesome for us the 99%:

whereas Wall Street based companies have access to Billions and Billions of Riches, Small Businesses have access to no such Money. Hence you as Small Businesses operate at EXTREME disadvantage compared to Wall Street backed companies. But however by coming together in a Collective union and supporting one another we can in fact be Richer based on our Collective

It started in 2004.

It is lead by a large Global Community of do gooders, small business owners, socially conscious people, Free thinkers, Students, Teachers and Developers, aka "regular People", dedicated to putting the Power of the Internet in the Hands of the "regular People"; as well as a small team of volunteers and dedicated developers funded by Sale of Advertising and Donations.

The difference is that it is non-profit search engine & social net, the only one of its kind in the WORLD. Now that is called being different.

I think it is based either in Berlin or Wien Austria.

Although this intel is correct, I think pretty much. It misses the bigger picture. For what I think is most important to realize about Anoox is that it offers us real Choice, real Freedom, from Google monopoly over Search engine which is the source for what people know and buy in today and tomorrow’s World.

You ask "What Exactly is Anoox?" Anoox is the Google, Facebook, Twitter, Wall Street FREE Zone.
Anoox is where the People and Main Street come first and not profits and share prices on Wall Street.
At least for me that sums it up. That is why I love this place. Although there are a bunch of things I would do better different, given that this places is a run by a Global Volunteers working for Free compared to lavishly paid Wall Street corps, I think it is quite amazing already.

Well said my friend. Well said. I would add that Anoox is like the Truth engine, or more exact like the Truth onion, since Truth has many layers to it. Similarly with Anoox we can get the Truth out via its may tools (layers) for doing so, which are:
1- The search engine controlled by US, aka crowd wisdom
2- The question & answers, where we are now
3- Polls, which lets us measure people opines
4- My-2nd-brain

My hat off to Anoox community :)

Anoox is a non-profit search engine and a search engine that is based on crowd wisdom. As such it is the only one of its kind the World. How can you not know these facts and be here, now that is the real question! Just look around man. Open your eyes and look around man.

For me Anoox means much lower cost of Advertising. It means being able to be in business or not. For I was paying about $3000 per Month to Google for traffic, which was breaking our back. We get pretty much same traffic from Anoox for about $300. So for me Anoox means how we people and small businesses can come together in a non-profit collective to enrich ourselves rather than go through the Big Wall Street Google, facebook, twitter clutches which enriches the Wall Street class.

But Anoox does not have the same traffic as Google. So in that sense it is apple and orange comparing Anoox and Google cost of Advertising.

Faxonly, that is not right my friend. It is you that is comparing "apple and orange" the wrong way. To be exact Anoox of course has much smaller traffic than Google, but that is not the key point. The Key point is that Anoox Advert costs much less than Google for same traffic to SMB. To be even more clear, Anoox I think gets 10 Million page views per month vs Billions for G. But as a typical SMB you care to get your 100K or 200K impressions per Month. And whether this comes from 10-Mill PV per

or 10Billion, it makes no difference. It is like Anoox is a small airline of 10 planes vs G a giant airlines of 1000 planes. So as a passenger if both airlines can take be from point A to B, it does not matter that the Mega air line has 1000 planes vs the lil (Anoox) air line having 5 planes. If you still do not get it, answer this question: what weights more? 1 Kilos of feather or 1 Kilos of stone?

There are many parts to Anoox. One of them is the search engine. I personally love the My-2nd-brain feature as it lets me to organize all my notes like never before. But again there are many parts to Anoox, so you may find another part more to your liking.

Anoox means getting the Truth out based on what "We the People" think, aka Crowd Wisdom, in contrast to the Wall Street based right-wing Media lies and biases, aka Fake News, of which Google is playing key role in, as superbly documented via screen shots here:

Thank you for sharing that article about Google manipulating its search results to brain wash people as to the right-wing lies/agenda. I shall be sharing it with all I know. People should really think about who really is behind Google. And yes thanks GOD for this Anoox search engine to give US the People ability to get the Truth out.

Yes, that too. It was after all on Anoox that I read about what a nothing fraud and uber scam Bitcoin is while the Wall Street media where pumping this piece of crap as if it is a great something. So just on that score I totally agree with Anoox being the Truth engine.

Well if you look at the top of the screen, you see "Est 2004". So Anoox been around since 2004, which makes it older than Twitter or Facebook to put things in perspective.

Who started it, is a group of Internet visionaries, back in 2004, as you can see under About Us. Here:
https://www.anoox.com/about_us.php

And why it is different than other search engines, should be crystal, which are:
1- It is a search engine controlled by "We the People" unlike Google that is controlled by some mysterious Algos
2- It is non-profit to enrich small businesses on Main Street unlike Google which is mega for profit to enrich the Wall Street Billionaire class

As to where it is based, you can see that under Contact Us. The HQ is in Charleston SC with virtual offices in Berlin, Wien, Paris, etc.

As to who the person(s) behind it are, I dont know.

WT, what I am amazed by, is how is it that we NEVER hear about Anoox in the Big Media? Even though it is a most amazing search engine and the only non-profit search engine & social net in the World! You would think that the Media, in doing their so called Job which is to cover what is usefull to the People and is so unique, would be covering Anoox all the time. But NO. You never heard about Anoox from any Big Media outlets, whereas ad nausem they cover the FAAG.

FAAG is short for: Facebook Alphabet Amazon Google
In fact the actual full acronym used by Big Media is: FAANG, with N being for Netflix. So my point was an is, if you get your info from Wall Street based Media, aka Fake News, you would think the entire Internet is FAAG , as they cover these handful of companies ad nausem and they never cover cool different organization such as this Anoox which is for freaking sake the only non-profit search engine social net in the World. You know what I mean.
