As the quantity of information on the internet expands exponentially, it is becoming increasingly difficult, if not impossible, for search engines to provide all relevant results on page one, while also eliminating those that are irrelevant. Furthermore, providing millions of matched documents is of little use when few people venture past the first page.
Surf Canyon develops "real-time personalized search," a technology that disambiguates the user's intent post-query, and, in real time, brings forward to page one the relevant results that might otherwise remain buried. By transforming static lists of links into dynamic search pages that automatically re-rank results on the fly, users are able to more quickly and easily find pertinent information buried among the irrelevant results, significantly accelerating the search process. This patent-pending technology, available at our search site or as a browser add-on for portability to the major search engines, is also known as Discovery for Search ™.
The company was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
