Steffen Mueller, ex-Googler product manager has developed a new Vertical Search Engine called “Topicle”, utilizing Google Custom Search Engine (CSE). Topicle currently has several customized topical search engines already. But users can are still free to add their own search engines. Creating new engines takes only two steps and works pretty much like in Google CSE. But creating a custom search engine in Topicle is faster than in Google CSE. The advantages of being an ex-Googler were definitely put to use by Mueller.
With Topicle, you can create a new vertical search engine with a few clicks. In Topicle's world, a vertical search engine is a topic search engine, like D’ Technology Weblog. Each Topicle search engine only searches handpicked URLs, instead of the whole Web.
All Topicle search engines are open, and everyone can contribute by adding URLs and rating existing URLs. Just like anyone can author articles on Wikipedia, anyone can create and enhance search engines on Topicle. With everyone's help, Topicle search engines will get better and better over time.
