Social Search Site Scour Now Speedier (Say That 10 Times Fast)

Social search engine Scour is now faster. Not only that, there’s a whole host of new things that have been added.

Such as:

  • Search speed improved by 80%—For example, a search for “shoes” is averaging .123 seconds with the newly overhauled speed.
  • New layout—Limited the top sponsored results and added more listings per page to help users find what they’re searching for quicker and without clutter.
  • New search filter—Double click on any word in the results to add or remove the word to your search.
  • Open results in new tab—More tabs available for easy navigation.
  • Site search from results—Now users can conduct a site search using their current query on any site in the results page.
  • Better comment view—Users can better organize comments left by other Scour members
  • Enhanced points box—Users can get a detailed snapshot of their total points breakdown with a simple click without leaving the page they are on.
