Most search engines that offer realtime search results use basic filters to display results to their visitors. This can be a time based filter or one that uses popularity to select the results that are displayed in the search engine.
Factery Labs uses a different approach. The realtime search engine tries to concentrate the results on facts rather than popularity or time.
Factery has developed FactRank technology to mine real-time feeds and web content for the purpose of providing simple, short answers to user queries
A user looking for prices for Apples’ tablet computer iPad for instance will see lots of results that detail those prices. A list of preloaded searches and results are constantly updated automatically with the option to pause the updates. Custom searches can be added to the list of searches that are constantly updated on the right side of the website.
The concept itself is interesting but the results are sometimes not related to the search query. One of the default searches for instance was “where is chuck norris” with the answers concentrating on the who instead of the where.
The Factery Labs search engine can be useful for users who want to access facts about a specific term in short time and it could become especially useful for searches that static websites cannot provide answers for.
