Blekko, the slashtag search engine launched by Rich Skrenta, went live today.  Danny Sullivan outlines why it's different and how to use it.

I just used Blekko to do a search. I really like the "Slashtag" function. But I wonder if it will be enough to entice people over from the big search engines. Then again, maybe that is not what the creators of Blekko are after.

I wonder if the world needs another natural search engine in it. I used Zuula last week and I think I prefer it too Blekko. I know I'm comparing a "slashtag" search engine to a multi-search. But on the basis that I type a search query into a box and get results back, I think I prefer Zuula.

With all that said, Blekko has only just launched, and is still in Beta form. Though I do wonder when the first paid ad will appear on their results!!!
