Team and Technology

Mojeek was created to provide a globally competitive and genuine alternative search engine based in the UK, and from the outset one that didn't track its users nor simply retrieve its results from another engine (i.e. to provide real alternative results).

Mojeek's technology has been developed entirely from scratch by Marc Smith, mostly using the C programming language, and uses no pre-existing search or web crawler technology. All technology and IP is fully owned by Mojeek Limited.

In 2015, Mojeek's index surpassed the billion pages, the only search engine in the UK to accomplish this and one of just a handful worldwide to maintain an index of this size (English language). Although, passing this milestone is only the first step and Mojeek is continuing to increase its index size and improve relevancy.
