I would like to thank you for Helping to Promote RustySearch and the Search Engine Relevancy Challenge. We have surpassed 10,000 searches of which 5,000 searches were rated. Please continue to promote it, so we can hit 20,000 rated searches. The graphs and charts below are current as of 5/12/2005 at 3:30PM (EST) pulled from The Search Engine Relevancy Challenge, RustySearch search engine. I'll explain each graph and chart below.

The "Search Engine Relevancy Dials" below show how each search engine scored on average in terms of relevancy on a one through five scale at this point in time. The search engine with the highest score is considered the most relevant search engine voted by you.

This link graph groups search engines by rating. The reason we plotted it on a graph like this is to show you that there is this U shaped curve that is consistent between all search engines when rated. In our opinion, it means that most people either feel the results are relevant or not relevant. Very few people feel that a search engine can be "somewhat" relevant.

Finally, here is a raw summary count of data that we placed on a simple chart view for you. This data is real time and will continue to update as people rate. The averages from top-down are the average rating count by search engine. The averages from left-right are the average rating count by rating group. The value at the far bottom-right corner is the total rated search results obtain at this point in time at RustySearch.
