The reason I use a search engine is to get information that I am looking for as quickly as possible. There are numerous ways in which Google fails. Technical information / answer is a particularly large one IMO and indexing w/ respect to various axises ignored by Google would be most beneficial to DDG's success. Another way in which it fails is in its unarticulated "secret" weighting of some sites. Early versions for example privileged information at .edu sites. If you could expose the weighting metrices and potentially even provide an API for modification then users would have a lot more power and could potentially provide their own. The key would be not to impose a particular weighting but allow users to choose there own (power users would likely create their own unique weighting).
