I am never an early adopter, particularly when it comes to new search engines and new social networks, but I have to say, I find the new search engine Blekko to actually be an useful tool. Not so much for it’s search results, but more for the SEO data is provides. I suspect those in the web business will find more uses for it than the average users. I was most excited by the Duplicate Content tab, since BarFly often experiences content theft. However, it needs refined. Even presenting a little bit more data, for instance the full path of the page that contains the duplicate content, and an example of the duplicated content, would be a pure a winner.

If you look at the currents results for duplicated BarFly content, it’s hard to decipher what (of the thousands of pages) content has been duplicated and on what exact page? Is the Oregonian really stealing our data?

Doubtful, but I do hope this is refined more – could be an incredible little tool.
