The Search Lounge is pleased to feature an exclusive interview with Blake Rhodes, CEO of Icerocket. Icerocket is a new search engine from
Icerocket offers the following tabs for searching: Web, Blogs, News, Phone Pics, Images, and Find A Friend. For web results, the “archive” link takes you to results from the Wayback Machine and that’s always a good thing in my book.
For a search company that’s the equivalent of a newborn baby, I like what they’re doing and hope to see them grow.
We have been live about 6 months.
Features we are working on: RSS builder, we launched this about 10 days ago, it’s a free tool and we will be adding to it. We are working on several things right now, but I can’t really talk about them.
We actually donâ€™t pull Alexa’s results, just the thumbnail images and the traffic numbers. We crawl and index a lot of it ourselves.
Nothing is out of the question. [editor’s note: an interesting teaser.]
Currently, you are using your blog in lieu of help pages for searchers. Do you plan to develop help pages or will you continue on as it is? I find the blog to be very useful, but I took the time to look around Icerocket, whereas the first place many users will look for help is in a help section.
Yes we will have help pages in all sections soon.
No not really, it’s kind of fun to see what others are looking for, but thatâ€™s about it.
