Yoople is a search engine where users get to re-rank the results if they find the results of greater relevance. The collaborative search looks to leverage social power to bring relevancy to results.
Yoople! aims to give a human touch to the typical user experience with search engine indexing. It gives the people the chance to drag search results from their positions and drop in other positions and define their own order.
Yoople! = Yahoo! + Google + People
Example – Moving result from second position to first position:
1. Pick and Drag 2nd result
2. Move it toward 1st position
3. Move it upon 1st position
4. Drop there!
Shifting results will increase or decrease their “Yoople! factor” in such a way that further searches for the given term will show results in Yahoo! Web Search order improved by their Yoople!’s shifting factors.
On the right side of every result you can see how many times it has been shifted. The color of the boxes is based on the comparison between the positions of the given results in Yoople! and Yahoo!:
- purple box: Position in Yoople! is higher than in Yahoo!
- green box: Position in Yoople! is the same as in Yahoo!
- grey box: Position in Yoople! is higher lower than in Yahoo!
Rolling over a shift box you can read several informations about the result: the position in Yoople! (or Your Yoople! Position, just after your changes to the order), the original position in Yahoo!, the Yoople! Factor and how many times it has been shifted.
Your changes will affect the main order and everybody will see what you did and collaborate with you towards the final goal: create smart results!
