Scoofers is a new social search engine. This means that it provides search results based on the knowledge of experts at social networking websites. The combination of automatic results with social bookmarks leads to more relevant search results.
Social networking websites are websites where people can collect their favourite links and share them with others. Those websites are becoming more and more popular, and have millions of users. Scoofers orders its search results based on the popularity of social bookmarks. Only the best bookmarks appear in Scoofers’ search results.

Labels and refinements
Scoofers' intention is to provide you great search results. We noticed that searching today provides you all the results, but picking the right result is sometimes hard. That's why we labelled a large part of the internet. We labelled sites with refinement/labels like " For Senior Citizens " or " For Families " . When you click on those labels or refinements, you will get the appropriate results. We didn't do the labelling completely by ourselves; we use, Digg, Yahoo directories, DMOZ and other social bookmarking sites and directories.

We have also made four (until now) vertical Scoofers. They will provide better results for specific subjects, like travelling, electronics, party or fashion shopping. Notice the differences when your for instance type "New York". When you use the general Scoofers you will get results like the history of New York. When you use Travel Scoofers you will get instantly results with some travel like sauce on it. Also check the other vertical Scoofers out.

Happy Scoofering!
