Alternative search engine Cuil shuts down after two years
Cuil boosted about having a very largest search index, 127 billion pages in February 2009. However, even with such a large index the site under-performed and peaked at 0.2% of worldwide internet traffic in July 2008, with this figure steadily decreasing since. The site reportedly suffered from low relevancy results and poor load time performance, so the news of its closure comes as no surprise.
