Knowledge and information are becoming the world’s currency, but the online search tools and databases for obtaining it are sorely lacking and outdated. There are 50 trillion pages on the web today. However, traditional web searches like Google only show you about 1% of them, which means that users only get to see the tip of the iceberg. As a result, it’s nearly impossible for users to find what they really want or need.
The limits of traditional web searches often encourage web users to turn to online databases like Wikipedia, but these resources also have their flaws. For example, Wikipedia is only an encyclopedia, not a library, so it is limited in size and scope. Additionally, its resources are not always credible and, over time, they become outdated and sometimes non-functional.
The Founders of Yoogli were frustrated by the lack of effective online search options and databases, so they created Yoogli to help web users who want or need to develop a better understanding about a complex or technical issue, product, person, or service.
After developing several programs to help physicians with medical research, Dave Taylor started developing a new type of search engine. Dave created a product that was capable of returning meaningful results from searches according to the concepts described and the meaning of the words rather than just the basic keyword search. In 2011, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued the final in a series of four patents that formed the technology known as Yoogli: the first and only Semantic Search engine in existence.
Before Yoogli, Wikipedia was the go-to online research tool. However, Yoogli will offer at least 200 times the amount of information contained on Wikipedia. The Yoogli team has already indexed all of Wikipedia and millions of additional articles from elite research libraries around the web. Yoogli's plan is to continuously add information from the world’s leading universities, think tanks, researchers, and government studies as well as articles authored by the Yoogli staff.
Yoogli guides users through the research process to return the most accurate and relevant results at lightning speed, because the search engine understands the contextual meaning and intent of a search. This process is known as Semantic Search. A Semantic Search considers many factors, including context, location, intent, word variation, synonyms, generalized and specialized queries, concept matching, and natural language queries to provide relevant search results.
Semantic Search might sound complicated, but all of the heavy-lifting occurs on the backend. The website aggregates information from a number of databases, taking users directly to research articles. From here, the algorithm summarizes these articles to take users to relevant paragraphs. All a user has to do is enter a keyword and click on the page they want.
With Yoogli, users no longer waste time browsing. The website helps users achieve more relevant and deeper search results – faster than ever before.
Semantic Search is the future of search technology and Yoogli is at the forefront.
In 2016, we constructed Yoogli, the world’s finest research tool. Since launching the Yoogli website in May of 2017, our team has made significant progress and reached some important milestones.
We have completed development of the Yoogli search engine and continue to expand the online library. Yoogli has been fully functional since May 2017, but it is already five to six times bigger than Wikipedia. We will continue to add to it, until Yoogli is more than 200 times larger with over one billion research articles.
As we attract new members we have just started our marketing objectives but we are already generating 15,000 unique users per month, with minimal advertising. Yoogli plans to engage professional media advertising contractors to further brand and promote the site.
Yoogli uses proprietary and patented semantic search technologies, and the Semantic Search technology that powers Yoogli is protected by four different patents. Currently, Yoogli has no direct competitors and in spite of their claims - no other search engine can utilize this technology.
In addition to our leadership team, we have one full time computer tech and three full time researchers on the Yoogli payroll. As funding allows we plan to double our technical and research staff. The Yoogli technical and research staff will continue to make minor modifications and improvements to make the user experience as useful and user-friendly as possible.
While Yoogli as a research tool is free, Yoogli has the potential to generate impressive revenue and profit from its ad revenue. Unlike Wikipedia, which as a non-profit corporation does not sell advertising, Yoogli will sell advertising space and the potential revenue stream is amazing. Wikipedia attracts hundreds of millions of unique visitors each month, but its founders have made all content free of advertisements.
One of the country’s leading monetizing experts indicates that Wikipedia could be earning hundreds of millions of dollars every month, amounting to roughly $2.3 billion annually. These assumptions were based on Wikipedia's own traffic statistics, which indicate that it generates about 16 billion monthly page views worldwide.
While Yoogli is gaining traction at an amazing pace, the breakthrough technology of the Yoogli search engine offers a virtually limitless supply of applications that can be monetized. The technology offers applications like - market analysis, research, collaborative product R and D and the ability to put any social media campaign on steroids - in other words a large supply of vertical and horizontal markets.
Yoogli offers high revenue potential and high profit potential with minimal operating costs thanks to the advent of the cloud and new technology. The intuitive nature of the semantic search technology and our overall business model reduce the required cloud space and eliminate the need for monster servers and worldwide data centers. Fewer moving parts mean more profit potential. Older search engines do not have this advantage.
Yoogli has an exclusive feature known as the Collection Manager, which can provide information about the users and members that maintain collections on the Yoogli website. The Collection Manager can develop more dramatic and usable marketing information than any of the older search engines on the market. In the future, we plan to use this information to develop analytical data which can be sold to companies and marketing firms.
While Google offers analytics, it charges $150,000 per year for an analytics feature that is based on old technology. Yoogli's advanced technology and marketing capabilities allows us to price our analytical products at less than half the competition while offering four to five times more usable data.

The Yoogli Semantic Search Engine is totally new and totally innovative. In fact, the technology behind the Yoogli has only recently been developed. With this new technology, the Yoogli Semantic Search Platform provides features that no other search engine does.
Yoogli is a semantic search engine that converts search terms into a semantic model that represents not the words, but their actual meaning. The search engine is able to correctly understand and analyze complete pages of text, documents, and URLs to deliver more targeted and relevant results than keyword search. It can drill down deeper into a specific result, thus continuously refining the desired result for the user. Yoogli literally guides the user to the precise research material that the user is interested in and allows them to delve as deep or shallow into the subject as they desire.
Yoogli can index complete databases from university libraries, government agencies, and the Library of Congress - just to name a few. Yoogli researchers are on a never-ending quest to build a centralized research library from the world’s leading universities, think tanks, researchers, and government studies as well as articles authored by the Yoogli staff that can be easily accessed and navigated.
The heart of Yoogli is the Collection Manager, which enables users to develop their own private or public collections, which may be shared with social platforms. Public Collections can be paired with social media sites, enabling the site to analyze people and groups of people as semantic vectors. Public Collections also connect users with the information and people that are most valuable to them, taking social networking to the next level. Collaborative filtering technology can also identify people who have established themselves as experts in a particular field who may then be connected with others with like interests.
Yoogli is the first search technology to approach the level of artificial intelligence that can make full, automated semantic queries from user behavior. Yoogli understands more than just the words a user is searching. It knows how they relate to each other, allowing for matching on a semantic, rather than a single keyword, level.
Yoogli is the world’s most advanced research tool. With disruptive Semantic Search technology, Yoogli is a companion search tool that can return deeper and more meaningful research results. This cutting-edge technology is user-friendly. Users only need to type in a single keyword Yoogli handles the rest.
