Detailed Description

Update

Surf Canyon develops real-time contextualization technology for search. Available at their website or through a browser extension for Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox, it claims to improve search results provided by Google, Yahoo! and Bing. It pulls up results from as deep as page 100, enabling user to find relevant results that might otherwise have remained buried.

Here is their pitch:

"Rather than leaving users to manually filter through static sets of links, this innovative application uses real-time behavior signals to calculate 'instantaneous relevancies' within a result set in order to dynamically pull forward the most pertinent results while pushing back those less germane. The technology is similarly suited for targeting sponsored links, benefiting both users and advertisers."
