I don't know what it means but I like it.

Kartoo is a visual meta search engine. The interesting thing about is the visual component that not only shows the circle of influence, but also shows the nature of that influence.

A search of our SEO lyrics contest, (Where by the winning, the winning lyrics could net a cool $1,000) delineates the influencers in the space.

Very cool.

And very informative if you take a moment to understand it's relational value.

Have a good one.

  1. I really love this mind-mapping concept. Coupled with some of the fresh search ideas/implementations I have seen from Ask.com (results revamp), ChaCha.com (directly integrated chat help for your search), and Mahalo.com (guides like the old Mining Company), this really points to potential improvements on the basic search engine (e.g. Google) value equation.

    The problem I see for these competitors is that Google still owns the best basic algorithm (my opinion), most of the mind share, and a continually growing percentage of the traffic.

    And, without neglecting their core search value, Google is extending their reach with related services rather than trying to redefine search.

    The challenger SERPs can offer intersting alternatives, create value and even create wealth. They can be the Apple to Google's Microsoft.

    But it seems to me, they are going to need a sea change event in order to catch up.

    Unless someone could mashup all the best ideas into one end product…
