What is Previewseek Limited?

Previewseek Limited is a privately held, UK based company that provides the most advanced Internet search engine available on the web today. Based in London, Previewseek Limited was founded by leading entrepreneurs, computer scientists and advisors with both a strong demonstrated track record of success and a true personal passion for Internet search.

Our mission is to help ordinary people find exactly what they are looking for quickly, easily and efficiently. With our revolutionary artificial intelligence and adaptive behavioral technologies, you no longer have to visit multiple search engines to see what you may be missing. You no longer have to wade through hundreds of impersonal or irrelevant results to find what you need. You no longer have to resort to arcane query operators and lengthy Boolean commands to complete difficult searches.

How do we do this?

How we do all this is rather complicated. We rely on over 35 proprietary, patent pending algorithms based on 20 years of academic research into artificial intelligence, Bayesian statistical data mining, word-sense disambiguation, cognitive visualization theory, heterogeneous database querying technologies, and behavioral psychology.


None of this really matters, however. Because what you actually experience, could not be simpler. Just type in any search term such as ‘Java’ and you will immediately see the powerful differences between traditional search engines like Google and us.

So how exactly is Previewseek better than Google?

As you can imagine, we get this question a lot.

While we have a lot of respect for Google’s engineers and resources, we believe–and we hope you will agree–that Previewseek is significantly better than Google and other traditional search engines in at least 5 ways:

First, Previewseek is ‘smarter’. Going back to the earlier query on ‘Java’, Previewseek immediately understands that the word Java can mean many different things. Did you mean Java the island, Java the coffee, Java the programming language, or Javanese (the language spoken by people on Java island)? If you are not sure, Previewseek immediately gives you definitions of each different meaning. On Google, if you were interested in Java the island, you would have to click through over 70 pages of irrelevant results for ‘java’ before getting to your very first relevant result! In Previewseek, you just need to click once to get all the appropriate results.

Second, Previewseek is more comprehensive. It visits all the major search engines on your behalf, so that you can be sure that you are not missing any result. We put the results back together in a seamless manner and then we grade them according to our BehaveRank© algorithm that continuously evolves based on user behaviors.

Third, Previewseek is more prescient. That is to say … it … well, previews your web pages. With Previewseek, you can see the actual web pages of all your search results, even before actually visiting the page … saving you much valuable time and needless frustration. An image to the left of each result group shows you a recent image of the page, while a Preview link for each individual result shows you to exactly what the page looks like right now. So you can decide in just a few seconds whether a page is even worth your attention or not.

Fourth, Previewseek is more helpful. Regardless of what you are looking for, Previewseek automatically organizes results based on related concepts or words to help you refine your search even further. In the past, you pretty much needed a Ph.D. in computer science and knowledge of complex Boolean query syntax to refine your searches further. Previewseek does all of this for you automatically so that all you have to do is click. It’s as simple as that.

Fifth, Previewseek is more fun. Previewseek is the only search engine that makes browsing truly enjoyable. That’s because our unique Previewseek DiscoveryBase¬© technology integrates web search data with informative, quality content that is completely unbiased, highly insightful, and enormously educational. It is almost like having an entire library at your fingertips. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself returning to Previewseek even when you’re not searching for anything. Indeed, on average, users spend much more time browsing on Previewseek as they do on Google or any other traditional search engine!
