Blekko, the search site that “slashes out spam,” has been doing well these past few months. Since its release, it has continued to grow in both unique monthly visitors and monthly search queries. Perhaps most importantly, though, Blekko’s fans are loyal. One group, in fact, was loyal enough to create a “14 fact” infographic.
Fun Facts from the Infographic
The infographic, created by Razvan Gavrilas and a team over at Cognitive SEO, goes over the key points of Blekko – highlighting its industry assets, unique approach, and the importance of what it does. Here are some of the most interesting facts from the list:
- Fact two: If Blekko reached 1 percent of search share, it would be a billion dollar company.
