Good Site :) Go for it. Secure enough
A search engine that takes your privacy seriously.
Install a fresh copy of Windows on a virtual machine and patch it up. Then install the Blekko Toolbar and browse the web and compare the experience side by side. Blekko alters the results of everything you do in the same way as other browser hijacking adware. Not sure why all the praise for a malware vendor.
Safe website. Search engine which claims to be the "the spam free search engine".
"Spam Free: blekko includes results from sites whose primary purpose is information, not monetization. Sites created solely to game search engines are not included in our results."
This site is always comes up on my first browser page with a byline
that appears to be exactly what i am searching for.... however when you go to the site there is little or very often nothing that is related to your original search. Also,i have window 7 and had a devil of the time removing software( of unknown origin) that redirected ALL search inquires to Blekko.com.
I used to feature it but further research showed some of it's policies weren't all they were cracked up to be. At that point I dropped it- but would still have given it at least a light-green rating- possibly fully green. However, I have just seen XSS to it on way too many dogdy or worse sites.
Blekko (Toolbar and search engine) is a Spyware/Adware search engine which gives biased ad's and dodgy searches :( Should be removed using AdwCleaner. Its free and removes it!
Blekko is a search engine that bases results on human input (not unlike WOT). Where as many websites exist primarily to monetize online ad revenue, Blekko discounts those sites from Search results, providing better quality results to the search user. Blekko also provides a 'Slash' option that filters results through a list of human vetted websites -- that is, sites that have been listed by a community of Blekko editors. With incorporating human review, Blekko avoids becoming flooded by low-quality sites that have 'gamed' the search results.
Running XP-Pro and could not could not get rid of it easily as it intertwines itself everywhere. Should there be any question about it just Google "how to get rid of Blekko" and note the large number of hits.
