Starting a search engine?


Well first of all let me say I am not looking to conquer the SE world with a search engine. I just want my own little piece of the SE market!

Well I am looking at making a search engine. This will be like other search engines but I would like your take on my ideas.

I will be adding adverting etc to the search pages.

What do you think of these aspects?

Domain- should it be short and snappy?

Script? Should I use a script that is one the internet already?(if so any example) or should I make one?

Design- should it be simple and not overload with grpahics etc?

What are your views on my ideas? Or if you have any input or would like to help PM me

If you want to make a search engine try to make something more unique than just another search engine, maybe specialize it in a specific category.

A good starting point may be to ask what features you'd like to provide that are not available in Google, Yahoo or MSN.

Then the hard part is how you are going to spread the word and make current SE users switch to your new Search Enigne.

It sounds like a tremendous undertaking. But if your search enigne has unique features that people love to have or have to have, it may be the next Google.

Make sure its a short domain, people don't like to type a long domain for search engine. Yes if its unique it can be the next google, who know.
