Custom search engines for anyone

We built ContextualWeb to let anyone create their own unique search engine with our easy to use search API. Our engines are optimized for searching the world wide web or your own dataset – be it a gigantic news trove or a tiny photo gallery. Whatever it is you’re looking for, we have an affordable search engine tailored to your needs.

Search Technology

Recent studies in Neuroscience have considerably advanced our understanding of of the brain areas responsible for the encoding and the retrieval of memories. Our Contextual Web Search API is a programmatic implementation of the memory structure of the human brain: It indexes web pages in the same way the brain indexes memories. The result is faster, more efficient search.

Our Vision

Our goal is to decentralize the search engine industry by allowing anyone to create their custom internet search engine. We’d like to move away from being dependent on just a few web giants indexing the rapid changes of the world wide web. Search is the gateway to the internet – we’d like to democratize it.

If we’re going to have a real transformation in search, you have to try to be building technologies that will enable you to take something like 10,000 servers that are used for search today and do it with one hundred servers. (Fast Company)
