Major Cuil.com Flaw: it won’t work with more than 2 keywords


Everytime I try to do a query with more than two keywords, Cuil says:

We didn’t find any results for “apple google microsoft”

Some reasons might be…

* a typo. Please check your spelling.
* your search includes a term that is very rare. Try to find a more common substitute.
* too many search terms. Please try fewer terms.

Finally, try to think of different words to describe your search.

Does this have anything to do with the way they index content (supposedly cheaper and faster than google), or just a small bug on their logic once keywords are received?

  1. I suppose is just a ‘quick fix’ for the scalability problems that they have. 🙂 … you see … every keyword adds yet another index query and some other operations that only eat time. a 3 keywords search takes almost 3 times more resources to process then a one keyword search.
