New news search engine

Wikio has just launched in the UK; it is claimed to be Europe’s number 1 news portal, providing the most comprehensive news searches on the Internet. Wikio’s search engine scours not only traditional news sources, but blogs too: a Wikio search returns all the relevant articles, blog posts, videos and mp3s on a story from tens of thousands of news sites and the collection of over 13,000 blogs indexed thus far.

Wikio has also created what they consider to be the most thorough, monthly Top UK Blogs rankings available. There is an overall Top Blogs ranking, as well as category-specific ones, such as the “Politics” category where “Curly’s Corner Shop, the blog!” currently stands at number 60.Wikio - Top of the Blogs - Politics

I have to say that I’m a bit surprised to find the Corner Shop ranked above the BBC’s Nick Robinson, that Devil’s Kitchen is at No. 2, or that Guido Fawkes doesn’t even get a mention.

Must have some strange algorithms is all I can say!

  1. Hi Curly,

    As I’m sure you’re aware there have been numerous attempts to create definitive Top UK Blog rankings, though whether one deems such an endeavour a success depends on one’s own criteria. For those that wish to see how ours are compiled, there is a link on the rankings pages above the list on the right.

    We hope to continually provide the most thorough and up-to-date rankings available, and hopefully they will continue to include your site, Curly!
