    Quite cool! Could you check out my search engine: https://replit.com/@CameronBall/obscrd?c=143936 and tell me what you think? I decided to grab results from brave bing and google for mine

    Nice to see someone tried XSS (Cross-site scripting)! It didn't work though! Good I remembered to fix it before launching it! (just search "script" and you will see it! It doesn't actually run the code :)

    Ok, I found a way it can work, how about this, I make a better design, and you make it so that you can search with url as well was as key words, bc lets be realistic, people are gonna search up apple.com not apple.

    It doesn't work at all! The colors don't work well and you didn't use smooth CSS properties.

    I will be updating this VERY regularly! Here are a list of updates I am working on (I'll update this comment when I can!):

    Current update: update 1.

    UPDATE 1 - ADDED: Adding site previews (right-click the URL to view a pop-out window to preview the website!)

    UPDATE 2: ADDED: Integrate a calculator into the search engine

    UPDATE 3: Integrate a translator into the search engine

    UPDATE 4: Integrate a dictionary into the search engine

    UPDATE 5: Add basic widgets such as knowledge panels into the search engine

    UPDATE 6: Add instant answers to the search engine

    And MANY more updates!

    Yes, I made a new search engine. I don't mean just a "search engine" where you type a URL in and it redirects you there, like I have seen other people do. It's also not powered by google, or bing, or yahoo, or anything else. It is powered by a little json file on the website! So I need people to add results, which I'll explain how to do in a minute, it's very simple! It is an actual working search engine.

    If you like it, please consider upvoting this post!

    So I made a working search engine, but the problem is getting the results. Nobody would want to add results to a search engine nobody uses! That's why I need you to add any websites you want added. To do this, open the site in a new tab and click on the "Add a site" button next to "Search" and enter the website details there! Follow the algorithm to make your result show before others!

    ###How do I search for things?###

    To search, simply type in your query into the box at the top and click "Search". The algorithm will try to figure out what results you want and show you them first. You can learn more about the algorithm in a second.

    ###How does the algorithm work?###

    You may be wondering how the algorithm works. Engines like Google and Bing track you across the web, but I didn't want to do that. On the downside, this means results are less personalised and only based on the search query and other factors explained in a minute. On the upside, you don't get the creepy ads you get on other search engines!

    ####Factors the algorithm considers:###

    **Matched words: ** the algorithm counts how many words the website's title contains, and stores it. The more matched words, the higher the result will appear in search!

    **Title length: ** longer titles appear lower down in search results, even if they have the same amount of matched words. This prevents tag spam - where titles contain many tags to try to appear higher up on search results - and also makes searches more relevant as longer titles have a higher chance of matching keywords!

    **Clicks: ** of course, the more clicks (times a user has clicked on a result) a website has, the higher it will appear. This prevents people from adding results with the same title and trying to get people to click on their website instead of the real one, which would be possible if this factor was not there.

    Please note: the actual website design is horrible, but I'm not a website designer, I'm a programmer. If someone could make the site nicer, I would appreciate it, but the point was not to make something that looks nice, it was to experiment.
