Answers.com Named “Search Engine of the Month”

Answers.com is proud to be September’s Search Engine of the Month, as named by AltSearchEngine. Answers.com helps over 1 million people daily get relevant content from reliable resources with no links.

Charles Knight, editor of AltSearchEngines, compares results from Answers.com to other search engines saying, “When I search “Absinthe” on Google, I get the usual 10 disjointed web pages. When I search the same query on Answers.com, I get, in a matter of seconds, a beautiful 14 page report, with: Dictionary; Etymology, Production, Preparation (The Absinthe Ritual), Czech Absinth, History, Controversy, Effects, Regulations, References (40 citations), External Links, Articles, and the Best of the Web. All perfectly organized and beautifully displayed. It looked like an A+ term paper!”

Knight also gave trumpeted praise for 1-Click Answers, the company’s free download that provides instant access to definitions and reference material from any website. Of the feature, Knight says, “1-Click Answers is a very impressive feature ... Everyone should have it.”

While Answers.com is not a “pure” search engine, Knight said he named Answers.com to the winner’s circle because “one of the main qualifications is that those on the list do one thing better than the major search engines.”
