The Million Short Search Filters Out the Top Million Results

If you were ever wondering what would happen if your search engine ignored the first few million sites, look no further, the Million Short search engine functions to provide alternative ‘hipster’ results by ignoring the top 100, 1,000 to a million search results.

Created by Toronto-based software company Exponential Labs, the idea behind the eccentric search engine is the fact that when everyday users search for things, you may get around billion results from Yelp, Facebook, LinkedIn and other sites. As you keep scrolling down, from the first page to the fifth page are results that are more than often repeated and as a result, and this may limit your search scope in finding eclectic results when articles are recycled. The Million Short is an unusual experimental search engine that focuses on wanting to inspire deeper and different searches.
