Guruji .... a guru ??

came accross http://www.guruji.com/ the first thing i did not like is the punch line ...
"the indian search engine"
guys why do you want to regionalise technology ... and why are people trying to cash on region wise ... its a big world out there ... go compete.... may the best technology win ... !!

and the funnier part ...
try searching ... "flex coders india" ( mind you tried searching something specific to india )
and the FIRST result i got was ....
http://www.punebusinessdirectory.com/BuyingSelling/ShowProductEnq.asp?ProductID=962
based on following highlighted text
(Baddi, distt-solan , INDIA) BUY CODERS PRINTERS Details REQUIRED RENUKA ENTERPRISES (KHAMGAON , INDIA) FLEX BOARD INKJET JET PRINTER

man that was pathetic ...
try the same on THE Search Engine .. i mean google ... and u get
http://www.flexcoders.net/ ( international registry for flex coders )
and second result ...
google group ... groups.google.com/group/bombayflexcoders
second is more relevant than 1st ...

and DEFYING the "dont be eveil motto"
guruji started a contest ... for everyine to use there search engine .. and win prizes
ok ... quite a few people will start using this service if promoted like this
but what after the offer is gone ..
WHY WOULD SOMEONE USE SEARCH ENGINE THAT GIVE INAPPROPRIATE RESULT ...

as the saying goes ... 1st impression is the last impression ...

all i can say is that
(i) guruji u need improve a lot ...
(ii) guruji pls dont bias in terms of regionalism ...
(iii) dont bribe guruji ... that is not good in long term ...

hope to see gurji in better shape soon
cheerz !!

guruji is no doubt that good search engines and gives better search results as I have also used it but in my opinion it can not match with Google at this point of time. They do have the potential and have work hard for it. That search engine is also promote to Java scrips and knowing the more information related to that script.

I agree they must be working hard and not planning to match google.

one of my friends updated me ... they are concentrating on hyderabad local searches ...

try searching "adf treemodel" on guruji and any other search engine. guruji will return less than 5 pages in total.

NONE of the search results are from apache.org or oracle.com
