SICK SICK SICK
and tired of being erased from these
STUPIDLY ILL CONCEIVED
search engines !
The time has come for fundamental change.
You think you have a graphical interface already?
Note: A graphical interface isn't simply a DOS interface with a colored background. Nor is it a DOS interface with a JPEG picture in the back.
Graphical user interface refers to the dimensionality we are navigating in.
You see only the tube you will
travel through ('hypertext')
just 2nd order destinations
(2nd order)click me
GUI = 2 dimensional You see a whole 2-D map with 3rd,4th,5th ... nth order destinations
YOU / \ 2 2 / \ / \ 3 33 3 / \ /\/\ / \ 4 4 4 44 4 4 4 . .. .. .. . . .. .. .. . . .. .. .. .
A graphical user interface is one where we "navigate" as though hovering over a landscape and choosing our destination from among perhaps thousands presently visible ... rather than "tunneling underground" to a small number of destinations we have 'read' about (hypertext).
Note: Hypertext is extremely useful ... especially when dealing with thousands of files. But when dealing with hundreds of millions or billions of files we need some help from a higher order method.We are rescued by the GUI interface. We choose from among a small number of very broad categories and quickly "whittle" the problem down to size.
A Real Search Engine must show a map upon which people who wish to index a page may place a link to that page ... themselves ...
It must be done by people ... and the only people who can do the job are the millions of people who want to post to the Internet.
And ... to keep rational control over the index ...
This is the "scheme" .......
There is an initial map with broad general categories (just surface features placed by the engine owners in response to choices by indexers). There may be only a dozen or so such categories . Click on one (or near one) ... and ...
Then comes the second layer. Click on one of these areas and a "detail" map comes up of that area.
Then a third level (each level would expand at some specified scale - say 200 to 1 ... except the lowest one) ... then ...
At this fourth level we're into the real nitty gritty of the search engine. (because (#1)200 areas x (#2)200 areas x (#3)200 areas x (#4)~20 websites = 160 Million listings ... more than enough URLs for present purposes.
Use the space bar to toggle through the levels.
For $5.00 per year you get 1 "square" at the lowest level. In your square you get a 100 character name-description.
When someone clicks on your square they get a 2K description designed by you - the indexer - (the square "enlarges a bit" for a closer look) a colored background and the 2K (meta) text and the URL to click on. When the URL is clicked the "clicker" goes to the indexer's page itself and exits the search engine. Indexers determine where they wish to place their square.Also, you should get about ten copies of your square so that you can cross index.
Put them wherever you like on the map. Duh ... maybe next to Microsoft's 10,000 square ad ... "I might get more hits there?" ... You get the picture.
Change your square whenever you like throughout the year's rental. Renew automatically if you wish. You will never be erased from the search engine because it has no "stupid 'bot" checking anything.
If you want to "show up" an the higher level map, you must buy enough squares and choose the background colors and place them so that they spell out (or form) your company name (or logo) at the higher level with those lower level squares. Simple isn't it?
The minimal $5 fee shakes out the chaff. Anyone will pay $5 for his home page ... but who can afford to index hundreds of personal pages. Just a few per individual will certainly do the job.
Just do what I say.
