So, for example, a search for "foobar" would show results from Wikipedia, Project Gutenburg, and '.gov' sites, but not from Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, etc. The results of a search should not include SEO garbage.
1. Briefly about Kristinita'S Search
I have long been worried about the problem, which raised in @agc question. Recently I begin to develop Kristinita's Search — search engine, which searches for information only in open access sources, written by professionals in the theme.
I do not find choice except to add each website, which will be searched, manually. In my search engine not paywalls, internet-magazines, social networks, SEO garbage and so on. I add only sites, useful for science.
- I'm sorry, the project not ready yet. Please, do not hit me hard.
- Kristinita's search only for Runet. I understand, that more be better to create search engine that include English and more languages, but I can not to do a huge amount of work.
