is a new search engine concept where users make investments, with
fictional money, in their favourite websites and the rankings are
determined entirely by the users.
Traditional search engines rank websites
using machine algorithms that try to determine the popularity of a
website by metrics like the number of backlinks to the site. The
problem with this approach is that it is biased towards larger
established websites that have been around along time. This makes it
difficult for the newcomers to get any visibility.
On Tall Street.com,
the websites at the top of the results are those that are best able to
inspire their users to make investments in them, this tips the balance

has a fair ranking system, everyone gets an input into the rankings. If
you think a site doesn’t belong, you can mark it as spam. If you find a
site that is better then what is showing as the best then you can sign
up and invest in it. If you’re right and other people agree, then
you’ll make more money and have more influence over the directory. This
is in contrast with traditional search engines where its difficult to
say exactly how the rankings are determined but it seems like a few of
the popular websites determine the rankings of the whole internet and
your average user (who doen’t have a website) gets no say at all.
“Tall Street is a really good solution to
the problem, people can instantly access what is the best website under
a keyword at a particular time, and those millions of great websites
that never get to be seen because of the lack of an audience or lack of
money can finally recieve the attention they deserve” says Gary
Roberts, one of the people behind TallStreet.com
