Dedicated pdf. search engine November 24, 2008

I was happy to hear about PdfGeni, the new dedicated search engine for pdf. type documents, though after I tried it, I had mixed feelings about it. It is not as good as I expected, thought it is not too bad either. The layout is simple, clear, no problem with that, but it tends to bring up fuzzy search results such as main URL’s and unrelevant pages from different books. It did however come up with very useful and never-before-seen results for my keywords: “nuclear medicine” and “pediatric radiology.”

In any case it is a solid engine, though it is still in beta, and if developments continue, this will be a search engine worth putting to our SeekRadiology project.
