The next big search engine that just might blow Google out of the water.

Working on a different side of the field than Google, Blippex is a new search engine that collaborates results based on information gathered by its users. It is a database built by its users, for its users, with a close resemblance to the structure of Wikipedia.

Blippex is the brainchild of Max Kossatz and his co-founder Gerald Baeck. It ranks pages “based on an algorithm Google can’t match.” The founders named this DwellRank, which decides relevance based on the amount of time a user spends on a site and how many times Blippex users have visited it.

A downloadable plugin for you web browser transmits the search information to Blippex to establish a more personal search engine. No need to be worried about your privacy because Blippex strips away any information that could identify you, leaving you anonymous and untraceable.

With a growing number of pages, Blippex has a promising future ahead – currently it has over two million pages under its belt. Kossatz is confident Blippex will get better with time as it builds a search engine “one site visit at a time.”
