Clusty - The clustering search engine

Interesting concept - try it out at - I found this information about the way that it works ...

Rather than focusing just on search engine result ranking, we realized that grouping results into topics, or "clustering," made for better search and discovery....

Clusty queries several top search engines, combines the results, and generates an ordered list based on comparative ranking. This "metasearch" approach helps raise the best results to the top and push search engine spam to the bottom.

But what really makes Clusty unique is what happens after you search. Instead of delivering millions of search results in one long list, our search engine groups similar results together into clusters. Clusters help you see your search results by topic so you can zero in on exactly what you’re looking for or discover unexpected relationships between items.
