Searching for Steel Strip terms, standards etc. can be frustrating due to the use of the term "steel" in so many non steel related sites. Whilst this is to be expected in nevertheless makes finding the information we are looking for more difficult and time consuming.

I recently discovered the Google co-op search facility, which allows refined searches within specific subjects. Early results with this have been encouraging, and it has replaced my Swicki as the first search of choice, mainly due to it's speed.

Last year I came across the "Swicki" search. According to the faq page a Swicki is new kind of search engine that allows anyone to create deep, focused searches on topics you care about. Unlike other search engines, you and your community have total control over the results and it uses the wisdom of crowds to improve search results.

It allows users to recommend sites that will be added to the results for specific searches, and just as importantly, it allows the exclusion of non related sites. It is only by the search engines usage , and feedback that  it is improved. Within the search results users are given the opportunity to recommend sites to be promoted or "tagged". Please help us improve the quality of the searches by recommending sites for promotion. The search utility is below.
