Search Me You or Them on Searchme

Have your heard of Searchme, Inc.? Honestly, I've only heard of this site recently when I heard they were checking out this blog! Please note: "In July 2009, the company lost funding and the search engine went offline."

Searchme results for Jaguar Julie
Curious, I accessed their site and did a search on Jaguar Julie. What a pleasant surprise to see that they had found my websites, blogs, and Squidoo lenses. And, more of a surprise was the cool presentation of the search results -- in screen captures that are like a carousel or stack that you can page through rather like an open book. I like this very much! You could also try the searchme lite version to view your results in a page.
Searchme lets you see what you’re searching for. As you start typing, categories appear that relate to your query. Choose a category, and you’ll see pictures of web pages that answer your search. You can review these pages quickly to find just the information you’re looking for, before you click through.
P.S. We really liked Searchme and hope they come back in the future!
