MozDex is a search engine seeded from the dmoz.org directory. MozDex uses open source search technologies to create an open and fair index. Their goal is to index the entire web in html content. They want to be able to provide a powerful and open search service to the community.
Some people may say that providing the insight into the results will offer cheaters a better way to get higher ranks, but our view is it allows us to openly discover and communicate new methods and algorithms that give a better view and representation that is less Fallible to cheaters.
Proprietary systems have already been done. We are here to utilize open technologies and open source to build an index that doesn’t use proprietary software, processes or algorithms. Freedom of information and how that information gets to you is what mozdex is about. Mozdex is built around the Nutch Search technology. Thanks to the developers and companies listed in Nutch Credits for making this software and project possible.
