Well, it knows about ADSLGuide. It even shows a tweet from Fetler to Sarcy. laugh

Edit: Rats! It's gone now. frown

New competition is no bad thing.

Oscobo does however use Bing search data which is generally regarded as inferior to Google search data. Also, the "Ad" indication underneath sponsored listings could be a bit more visible, Google highlights it in yellow (assuming an ad-blocker is not removing them of course).

Where did you get that info? If so, I will stop using it.

Here:

Oscobo is licensing its search index from Bing/Yahoo so does not have any semantic search tech of its own.
