Teoma search engine? Can't Post

Has anyone heard of the Teoma search engine, I was reading an article about it and how it uses all these new algorithms to give the best results, does anyone know if this is true or could point me to a good article or website on search engines themselves and how they work, thanks

Re: [ThreeFold] Teoma search engine? [In reply to] Can't Post

Search Engine Watch ( is a good source for general info on search engines. It has an article titled "Teoma vs. Google" at -- here's an excerpt:

Teoma offers three kinds of results for each query. On the left of the result page are "relevant web pages" that are similar to what other engines produce. On the right are two other kinds of results: "Refine," a list of "suggestions to narrow your search," and "Resources," which are "link collections from experts and enthusiasts."

Each set of results is useful, for different reasons. And all three types of results are generated using proprietary technology that makes them somewhat unique compared to other engines.

Teoma's underlying technology is an extension of the HITS algorithm developed by researchers at IBM several years ago. In a nutshell, the search engine goes beyond traditional keyword and text analysis and seeks out "hubs" and "authorities" related to your query terms -- a "social network" of related content that forms a "community" about the topic.
