Kartoo a meta search engine that maps

Kartoo is worth the time you will spend looking at results presented in a highly visual format. Still can't say that I understand all the ins and outs of using it, but love seeing results presented in maps. This was also fun to chart. Looking at the chart it appears (again)I am a little behind the buzz in learning about what Kartoo is and what it does.

My searches, using key words brought me by a genie look alike, were mapped by relevance and larger sized items indicated importance. Using keyword search, women bloggers, Kartoo brought me 16,000,000 results in pages of visual maps that went on and on.

Another key word search using, women bloggers research, provided me 8, 5100, 000 results with the most relevant items sized accordingly. Found MotherPie again on the first page of this Kartoo search. It is fun to search this way and as my mouse moved over the mapped images linking lines connected to other images and information on images was presented in text on the left navigation.

If you are interested in seeing search results presented in something other than a long list of items, check out Kartoo. Oh, and once again it appears that when you are actively looking for information the "truth is out there". Women are blogging and their numbers are growing.
