Axioma Search Engine

My neighbor sent me this link to an article in Hebrew about Axioma and I hurried to download it and to try it out. My first impression is that it is fun and that the team there did a good job. Investor Arie Adler can be satisfied from the result...

On their web site I read that Axioma
Allows you to interactively increase the relevancy and context searches you make on general search engines… You arrive at more relevant results quickly - without weeding through a lot of unwanted results.

So the idea behind Axioma is to solve the problem of relevancy, the problem of “lot of unwanted results”- but can they do that?

IMHO Axioma will never solve the problem of relevancy because it is built on the wrong concept: it is a macro content search engine, which means that even if you get the web-page you wanted you still have to find your way in it, and what if you need only one small paragraph from a page that contains hundreds of irrelevant paragraphs? And what if the data you need is scattered in 10 different results? – you’ll have to enter each result separately, just like you did in the “old" search engines that the “new” Axioma is destined to save us from.

Only micro content strategy will help essentially solve this problem. QTSaver is a step in that direction. Axioma is a step in the opposite direction…
