Search without the junk

Google is the standard for search, but finding the right answer to your question can be tough. The problem is that Google lets people manipulate the system to get their links higher than others, even if they don't give you an answer!

Happily, Blekko is a search site that dumps this junk so you find your answer faster. How convenient is that?

You can even nix ads from your search results. This is done from a privacy menu that lets you encrypt your search results and offers other security features.

Blekko gives you more relevant answers, too. It can tell the difference between words with multiple meanings. That means your search for "Android phones" won't lead you to links about robots!

Another cool feature of Blekko is that it will display pictures and tiles of the top trending search terms. When you click, you can see top news stories, search results, and more on that topic.
