Very nice, Barry. Maybe Cuil is trying get a laugh out of all of us. While their search sucks, they do provide a chuckle when you see stuff like you highlighted in your post.

This is one of the funniest Cuil posts I have seen... a close second is a comment left by the infamous Sean Maguire...

I LOL’d at DaveN’s "picture."This Cuil thing has to be a joke, right? I mean, like Spinal Tap, the results go up to 11 (one better than Google). The only way they’re going to kill Google is if the folks in the ’plex die laughing...

That Andrew Goodman picture is of the three voting rights / "Freedom Summer" workers who were slain by KKK members in Mississippi in the summer of ’64 (the basis for the movie "Mississippi Burning"). The man on the right of that picture would be Andrew Goodman, the civil rights activist.Importance? High. Relevancy to "our" Andrew Goodman? Low.

It’s a bit ironic that Cuil can’t even find itself... :-)http://www.cuil.com/search?q=cuil&sl=long

Ha ha, I didn’t escape from prison - yes, that other Andrew Goodman was murdered/lynched in 1964, in attempting to campaign for black voter registration.I was going to post something like this in a couple of days :)Boy, Cuill is taking it on the chin for this stuff. I figured the Danny Sullivan entry would be messed up but it’s an across-the-board mess, eh?

Andrew, I should have researched the image.  Looks bad in context...

Ahahahaha!  A can of Spam! ROFL... I don’t know which is funnier, their search results or the notion that Cuil can take on Google.

Are you *sure* that’s not our Danny Sullivan in the race car? I’ve heard he can spot a well-SEO’d site faster than, um -- Speed Racer! :)We have some things to improve, no doubt. But just think how boring the search blog space could get again once we nail our image and content matching!Onward....Vince from Cuil

Thanks Barry and thanks Cuil. That’s just what this industry needs, a good laugh. Especially Dave N’s result. This has got to be a cruil joke.

These are way too funny. They had to have done this on purpose to get the SEO community talking. What are the chances of pulling up so many hilarious photos for SEO peeps? Cuil may not be any good for searching, but at least it’s good for a few laughs.

That’s Cuil, (pronounced sil-ee or silly), Like "Cui bono," Latin for "To whom (is it) a benefit?"

Not impressed.  My search for adoption agencies turned up "viagra" on the first page of results.

I noticed this, too. I did my own vanity search and the link to my blog had a picture of, well, I have no idea who it was, beside it. Overall, I am not very impressed with Cuil so far.

I did the company search as well...first of all our site wasn’t indexed...and next to all the results for our company’s profile on other sites and press releases, like everyone else, was a picture of someone who I have never seen before in my lifeunfortunately it wasn’t someone "cuil" like a nascar driver or a farmer
