Blekko.com, a new search engine

So there’s a new kid on the block trying to compete with the likes of Google, Bing and Yahoo.  Blekko.com is out in extended BETA as a slightly different search engine.  While the big 3 have pretty complex searching algorithms, Blekko is going the wikipedia route and asking users to add slashtags to websites so resulting searches are more meaningful.  Blekko also states that this type of searching will cut down on spam dramatically.

It’s an interesting concept, but why would I go through all the trouble of doing this…for nothing?  What’s in it for me?
