So it looks like we have our first product from SearchMe, based in Palo Alto, called WikiSeek. WikiSeek is a Wikipedia search engine that basically indexes wikipedia links and also sites that wikipedia has linked to as well. It has a very simple (almost Google-like) user interface and returns pretty high-quality and spam free results, as it only indexes the sites previously mentioned.
But, that isn’t all they did, they also released a search plugin for Firefox and an extension as well for firefox. The extension adds a search button to wikipedia which allows you to search using wikiseek.
All in all, I find it a pretty good product, with monetization through sponsored links, tag cloud for common tags related to searches and highly reliable links. SearchMe did a pretty good job with this one, with the official announcement coming on Wednesday, I’d like to see the traction and reaction they get!
