Are you a Christian or interested in the bible? If so, check out Search In Christ.
With Search In Christ you can perform all kinds of searches to help you find the verses that interest you the most.
It also has a great interface for reading the bible once you find the sections you are looking for.

Just got the list of search engines that we submit to updated.
We found some new search engines to add, removed one that was no longer accepted submissions and removed another one that was no longer in existence.
We also updated the PageRank and Alexa rank of the search engines we kept on the list.

Last year we didn't get our yearly search query statistics posted until July. I am happy to announce that we got them up earlier this year.
So, if you want to see the most frequently searched for 32 phrases in 2011 then this page is for you.
Maybe next year we will get this done in January... *crosses fingers*.

We have spent all day (maybe longer... you never know) trying to make ourselves look pretty.
To do that we are using sharper colors, adding contrast and making our color schemes more consistent.
Feel free to look, admire and maybe even fall in love... as long as you do it all at a distance ;-).

Yeah, we haven't posted for a little while. So here's a recap of the last few months. You can just pretend that we split this post up into 6 different posts (one per month for the last 6 months).
Anyway, here is what we have been working on:
1. Still trying to get that ranking algorithm to be the best that it can be. After all, it is one of the few unique one's left in existence (almost all the others use some version of link popularity now).
2. A completely new type of search engine. Sorry, no more info for you. Wouldn't want you to steal it or anything ;-).
3. Getting our services integrated with FyberSearch accounts while still being available for those who don't have an account.
4. A couple new services to help you "be found" (promote your digital stuff). Can't tell you much about these yet either because we aren't sure which ones we are going to do. If you have any suggestions let us know.
5. Improving some of our services. It can be easy to not update things that aren't broken. After all "if it ain't broke don't fix it" right? Well, yeah. But that saying only applies to fixing things, not improving them. It would be stupid to fix something that isn't broken but it isn't stupid to improve something that isn't broken. We hope you enjoyed that little lesson ;-).
Check back soon! We don't want to do another over-sized post like this one again...

New about us page. Still needs work. We are still learning about ourselves.

In case you didn't know we offer a search engine submission service.
We maintain a public list of search engines that we submit to as part of that service.
We just updated that list.
That was a lot of talking for such a minor update... you owe us now for taking so much time and so many words to tell you about this. You can re-pay us but purchasing our search engine submission service.

We got tired of posting our updates on this blog and our press release page.
If you visit this blog much you know that we already have a hard time announcing updates in just one location. We are too focused on working ;-).
So from now on any press releases or announcements will be posted on this blog.

We finally did it! We got the yearly search query statistics posted and were only late by about half a year.

FyberSearch Promo Place has a new look.
June 4th, 2010 at 5:20am
FyberSearch is getting a make-over. Blue is pretty but adding a few more colors for contrast may be even prettier.
April 16th, 2010 at 8:41am
Our keyword research has been refreshed with more recent search queries to help you choose just the right keywords to advertise under.
February 19th, 2010 at 8:14am
Get all the info on the search engines we submit to for our search engine submission service.
I updated the list to include the Page Rank and Alexa Rank of each search engine.

I finally got The Lesson Finder switched over to the same technology that has already been backing FyberSearch.
November 30th, 2009 at 7:55am
I started a frequently asked questions page to address a few issues commonly discussed via email.
Will be adding more topics in the future.... sometime.

The Search Industry Blog is now better.
New logo, new design and a new back-end.
September 10th, 2009 at 12:02pm
The Keyword Selector Tool is now prettier. Could still use a little help though...
August 10th, 2009 at 12:40am
Add URL Pro now has a somewhat better design.
April 18th, 2009 at 7:05am
Ghetosearch has been stuck on an older version of our search results. I got it switched over so now it flips the current FyberSearch results upside down (as it should).
September 30th, 2008 at 8:51am
Just launched the new results based on a completely re-vamped set of core code.
This is the first step in a series of search technology improvements planned to take place. The future updates will be loosely based on the one we just launched.
Keep watching for more...

Nathan Enns Interviews Radu, Owner & Founder of FlexFinder
Burien, Wash. - April 23rd, 2008 -- Nathan Enns has interviewed Radu, the owner & founder of FlexFinder.
I am pleased to announce that Radu, the owner and founder of the meta search engine FlexFinder has agreed to do an interview with me.
It is a great engine and is giving us smaller and mid-sized search engines a helping hand in competing with the older and larger players. So make sure and check it out after the interview!
Nathan Enns: Can you tell us when FlexFinder was officially launched, what motivated you to start your own meta search engine and a little about your background in the industry?
Radu: FlexFinder.com was launched in December 2004 as a personal project in an attempt to better understand existing web technologies. My background is in software engineering with a lot of experience in designing desktop applications, but little in creating Internet based applications. I found the field of web searching to be very interesting and challenging, a perfect idea for such a learning project.
Initially I wanted to design an engine with its own database, but then I switched to meta-search, considering the hardware requirements for the former. However, I did not give up the initial idea completely, I still developed in parallel a small engine with its own spider/database, that is used as part of the overall meta-search engine.
Nathan Enns: I see that FlexFinder pulls results from smaller search engine companies like Gigablast, Mojeek, ExactSeek and EntireWeb as opposed to Google, Yahoo, MSN and ASK. Can you tell us what advantage there is in this approach?
Radu: Indeed, FlexFinder's approach is quite unique, since it is using search results from smaller engines and directories. Most meta-search engines are querying the same few major search engines, giving similar results to the users. FlexFinder, on the other hand, usually delivers different results for a user query by tapping into web resources that are not used so often.
The engines FlexFinder is using are of high quality and unique in their search algorithms and coverage, ensuring the meta-search results are different, but relevant to the user search.
Nathan Enns: Is there a benefit to the average Internet user in choosing FlexFinder instead of another meta search engine or a search engine with it's own database?
Radu: FlexFinder was not intended to replace the major search engines, however it can be a very good second engine. Big engines tend to use similar search algorithms that usually deliver comparable results to the user. On the other hand FlexFinder's results often reveal interesting web results that don't show up on the first pages of the big engines.
The complete interview that includes all 9 questions can be found at the search industry blog owned by FyberSearch at http://www.fybersearch.com/blog/interview-with-radu-at-flexfinder.php
FyberSearch is a search engine technology company founded in November 2003 by Nathan Enns. FyberSearch operates several websites that provide Internet users with information retrieval/processing services and website owners with tools to help them optimize/promote their website. FyberSearch's mission is to "provide revolutionary information retrieval and processing tools to all Internet users".
