Are People Really Using Cuil?

Nov 25, 2008 - 9:11 am 2 by

The Cuil search engine has been around for a few months, and now that the momentum has died, we've taken the liberty to look at the usage statistics to see how it is faring.

At High Rankings Forum, most individuals forgot about it (and even forgot how to spell it). Some think it's a dead fish in the water; Jill Whalen, however, suggests that Cuil will relaunch eventually once they address the issues that were brought up during the shoddy launch of the service. (Personally, I think Cuil is out of their window to launch in such a fashion; they missed the ball.)

We'll see. I think Cuil is forever forgotten, and I think I'm not alone.

Here's Alexa's usage statistics:
