MyriadSearch Updated

My friend Mike updated Myriad Search.

Some of the features / upgrades:

  • main results are numbered

  • snippets are organized in the same order as the tabs
  • you can optionally tick on returning Alexa rank, although the Alexa API is fuckslow - for lack of a better word ;)
  • a couple things on the using the new MSN API & not querying directly

Myriad Search was recently featured in SearchDay. Due to that exposure, (thanks for the review Chris!) and a few other links, it seems that sometimes Myriad Search is query limited & requires manually entering a Google API key to bring back Google results.

It still may need bug checks and a couple more features. Let me know what you think of it.

I intend to eventually offer up the source code if I can, but I need to do a bit more talking with Ask Jeeves to see if it is ok before I do that (since they do not have a general use search API just yet).

I know the word myriad is not a heavily targeted high value term, but there are 28,000,000+ results in Google for myriad. It is interesting to note that after about a week the site is listed in DMOZ and Myriad Search already ranks at 15 to 19 in Google for myriad as a three page website without any link buying or press releases, etc.

Good to see you got it online finally and live to the public.

After showing it to me at the SEOroadshow, I have been waiting to test it. I am glad to see I come out as being very relevant in my industry!

Good search tool.. cheers Aaron..
