Hey tech people, how hard is it to create a search engine? I think making the best, ad-free search engine is a killer move to get a jump on. I love rallying people around a vision. I'm not technical, so I play with my ideas by buying URLs, asking questions, writing copy, thinking about biz models, and seeing if anyone with tech skills wants to tinker. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RqrJbLn0sJx8k9DcX0uDnq58xqERyTWlD8s_0RqUl0o/edit?usp=sharing

I’ll put it this way: you have to write a computer program that visits every single website on the internet and then write a ranking algorithm.

That would explain why so few exist. ;-) There has to be some kind of big tech breakthrough that makes this trivial someday...

Well the easy way is just to copy googles results and Bing did do that for some searches at some point. It’s not the most complicated thing in the world but you need upfront capital for all the server costs.

https://commoncrawl.org is worth a look. Given the scale, indexing the web is quite resource intensive. Also, oyo.cash.

@jonathanaird What are we talking in upfront capital to get an mvp up?
jonathanaird replied:
@afomi That’s awesome!@isaacmprehouse not sure but according to that link it’s petabytes of data from day one. Another approach you could take is create a search engine for the metanet (which mostly doesn’t exist yet) and then expand into offchain legacy internet search from there (if it still ends up being relevant enough to be worth it at that point). Because it’s a new technology you don’t have to compete with incumbents.
isaacmorehouse replied:
That sounds like the preferred approach. I like it. THE search engine for the metanet, gut it right and dialed af, then potentially expand.
afomi replied:
For this model, consider something like WeatherSV, where a person could fund the indexing of some type of content, or a specific site for some period of time.

Oh now that is interesting. Page one shows up. "To see more results, pay X".
