This new search engine seeks to connect Internet users who are seeking info with those who know how & where to find it. Unlike Google, which shows you the Sites with the highest level or SEO, or the ones that spend a lot on adwords, ‘digle’ helps you find the results you’re really looking for.
Digle’s aim is to go beyond a simple search engine by helping people find the best deals, bookings & info online, & by connecting experts to get you specialized answers & really dig much deeper than traditional search engines.
To use digle you need to register via the ‘Connect’ button on the main product Web page or by downloading their Android or iOS app. Unlike traditional search engines, digle makes it very clear that you’re in a ‘social’ space by not only letting you search, but by also presenting you with a number of searches that other users are making & that you may want to help provide an answer to.
You can create a profile for yourself that will identify you as having skills in particular subject areas, like TV game shows,’livecomedy, CAD/CAM, beef… so that particular queries will be directed your way. When a user requests a new search, they will be asked whether they want to buy, rent, find an expert, local info, a company, a review or advice, or simply information, for whatever it is they want. Then, an expiry time is given & a reward for the finder measured in ‘credits’ is given, of which a user is initially given 3. More credits can be obtained by buying them or by providing search results yourself.
If you join as a specialist finder you you can earn cash & other rewards, & meanwhile you’ll be using your skills & interests to help other users. Digle contains a ‘gamification’ aspect whereas you compete with other diglers to win badges, unlock new levels to access extra features & try to rank high on the leader board. You can also chat & leave feedback for other users.
