a custom search portal around the topic of your choice powered by your community
Eurekster allows you to build a custom search portal, or “swicki,” around any topic of your choice. Rather than returning millions of results like a generic search engine, swickis learn from the search behavior of a community of enthusiasts and experts, making it easy for you to quickly find what you’re looking for within a particular topic. In addition, you can easily share a swicki with others and add a swicki buzzcloud to your site or profile (“grab” a swicki), which will dynamically display the hottest searches and give you quick access to that swicki and its community.
Users can build and customize their search portal on any topic, and share and distribute the social search widget to grow a community of interested users. With every search, the swicki becomes more relevant and meaningful to the user community, and more valuable to the swicki builder.
