Become.com Beta Now Open

Become.com Beta

The search engine is now open to the public (beta).

As avid shoppers, we understand the tremendous difficulty involved in researching a new product or service. We are attempting to reduce this difficulty by taking an innovative approach to search enginge technology, and tuning it for shopping information. Our goal is to help you find the best shopping research – buying guides, reviews, forums and articles – so that you can choose the right products.

Over the past 10 months, we have made great progress. We currenlty find shopping information on over 2.2 billion web pages from 22 million sites. However, this is an early beta and we continue to make improvements. There is still a lot of work to do.

I just registered now so I could poke around in here. The concept is great, a search engine for shopping. Nice job! A few of my aff sites are in here, but not all.

If you’re going to register to check out the beta, make sure to note:

While we are in beta, we have the following limitations:

Each beta tester is limited to 50 queries per day.
You must be able to accept cookies.

Additionally, to participate in our beta program, you must agree to the following:

I will not use any automated systems to send queries to Become.com, nor will I use any means to scrape the Become.com site.

How many of us promoted to our friends, families, visitors that Google was *the* search engine to use these past few years? Lesson learned: Search engine competition is great. đŸ˜†
