Dhoondho's RelevenceRank algorithm provides relevant search results by identifying the most authoritative sites on the Web.
With Dhoondho search technology, it's not just about who's biggest: it's about who's best. Our RelevenceRank algorithm goes beyond mere link popularity (which ranks pages based on the sheer volume of links pointing to a particular page) to determine popularity among pages considered to be experts on the topic of your search. This is known as subject-specific popularity. Identifying topics (also known as "clusters"), the experts on those topics, and the popularity of millions of pages amongst those experts -- at the exact moment your search query is conducted -- requires many additional calculations that other search engines do not perform. The result is world-class relevance that often offers a unique editorial flavor compared to other search engines. The Dhoondho Web Crawler FAQ Dhoondho's Web crawler is our Web-indexing robot (or crawler/spider). The crawler collects documents from the Web to build the ever-expanding index for our advanced search functionality at Dhoondho and other Web sites that license the proprietary Dhoondho search technology. Dhoondho search technology is unique from any other search technology because it analyzes the Web as it actually exists -- in subject-specific communities. This process begins by creating a comprehensive and high-quality index. Web crawling is an essential tool for this approach, and it ensures that we have the most up-to-date search results.
