The serial entrepreneur is valuing Mahalo at a rather whopping / ambitious / ridiculous $175m, according to Matt Marshall at Venturebeat, meaning that the search engine is worth another $75m more than it was when it launched back in May this year. Astonishing...

Well, trust Jason to pull off this stunt of SEO alchemy, transmuting s*** into gold, LOL. "Serial entrepreneur" really says it all, doesn’t it?

Can no one see it? That money is to be invested in SEO. :)

Yeah, that’s certainly one "search engine" that could do with plenty of optimization...

He doesn’t believe in SEO.  Even after being shown some serious problems by certain people here, he still doesn’t believe in it.Why do we still give airtime to that junk site here?

Jason is brilliant at making sure he is talked about. So long as Mahalo is still being discussed, it still has a future.

Other than the obvious Adsense ads that the article mentions... how is Mahalo actually going to make money? Has anyone figured this out yet?

Wait... I thought the earlier story was he had pots of money to let him work on this idea for years, years! I looked at his search results for Knitting when they came out. Sigh. . .   most of the links are ok-- but anyone who knits is bound to say "why this but not that". In some cases, "why this <i>at all</i>?  And at least one of the links is a hobby page, last updated in 2001, with most links pointing to pages under constructions and some announcing births as recent events?  Alexa near 3,000,000 (I think). But the good news: That page probably wasn’t tweaked by any one with SEO experience! :)Are investors really going to make gobs and gobs on that?  Oh well.
