Freehold, NJ (PRWEB) February 27, 2008
Stumpedia.com (http://www.stumpedia.com), a global democratic search engine powered by the people, for the people has officially launched.
Stumpedia.com is truly a community built and driven social search engine that relies on human participation to index, organize, and review the world wide web. It will not depend on bots, algorithms, or company insiders to make decisions on the relevance and ranking of search results. "Users will have complete control over all the data", said Stumpedia.com CEO and founder Luis Pereira. He added, "The black box mentality of industry leaders in the search space must be broken. We want to establish a truly democratic process where everyone has a say and their input on search results and features matter."
Stumpedia.com will enable users around the world to share their knowledge and interests with one another and provide an alternative to traditional search. Users are encouraged to create custom content pages for any possible search term in the world and links that will help people find relevant results and answers to their search requests. Links to social bookmarks, social profiles, blogs, news stories, authoritative articles, videos, images, and web pages are welcomed.
In addition to general search term queries, people go online to find information about other people. According to Search Engine Watch, there are 25 to 50 million proper name searches performed each day. If looking for information about colleagues, new clients, friends, or potential dates in traditional search engines, searchers may get all sorts of information. Stumpedia.com will make it easier for others to find information about someone and enable users to manage their online identity.
"Web 2.0 has created an interesting humans vs algorithms battle in the online search space", said Luis Pereira.
Stumpedia.com is currently welcoming questions from investors, the media and the IT Community.
