We'll look into #2 and if we get something we'll post it here.

Surf Canyon has it's own algorithm for re-ranking search results, but not for ranking them in the first place. We don't crawl or index the internet, so we need to rely on an underlying search engine to provide the initial set of results. It's for this reason that we go to the big search engines.

If you're motivated to learn about the nitty-gritty of what we're doing, I'd invite you to check out http://blog.surfcanyon.com/2008/12/0...nology-part-2/.

Please let me know if there's anything else we may do to help.
