Blekko and DuckDuckGo team up to enhance their search results

DuckDuckGo and Blekko partnershipTwo of the newer search engines that we’ve featured previously, blekko and DuckDuckGo have joined forces to enhance their respective engines with technology from the other.

For example, DuckDuckGo (DDG) now uses blekko’s slashtag technology to automatically filter out spammy website results, and blekko is using DDG’s ‘zero-click info’ which provides some summary info about a result.

Although not anywhere near Google or Bing’s level of traffic, both DDG and blekko provide some very nice features not found in either search engine and until ‘intelligent’ search technology advances to where we don’t need to qualify our searches, then human-driven intelligence will still be needed, but assisted by tools such as found in these search engines.
