    Guruji is an Indian search engine. I discovered it as INForum is getting some traffic from there.

    I played around with Guruji.com a bit. The results seem to be biassed towards Indian websites, but only slightly.

    The results in Guruji seem decent, but they don't seem quite as good as Google's, but they probably are better than Yahoo!'s and Live's results.

    In any event, Guruji.com looks like a very promising site, and I hope that it does well.

    Too bad that they don't use a .in domain :mad: Guruji.in and Guruji.co.in are parked pages.

    Does anyone know more about Guruji?

    How did you get a chance to meet the founders?

    Yes, Sequoia Capital is into everything online - LinkedIn, AdBrite, Youtube, etc. They do quite well!

    Guruji.com is a very good indian search engine. As someone said above, the search is somewhat indianized.

    I have been using its different service since some time now and can say that the database they have is impeccable. Definitely worth a try. Especially the newly added music search.

    There definitely seems to be less spam in their index than in Google's index.

    Uncannily, looks similar too Google.com, I suspect that underneath they have tie-ups with some other search engine to provide the results.

    I have visited this site, they have done good efforts. I think this search engine is specially for Indian continent. But Google is much better...

    I just read that Guruji.com is currently facing some copyright infringement issues:

    Before being arrested, I wonder if the Guruji.com executives had been served with copyright infringement notices?

    T-Series has a pending legal proceeding against MySpace.com.
