Sites are ranked by relevance AND safety
5earch takes your privacy and security very seriously which is why our ranking algorithm takes into account not only the relevancy of the results but also the safety of the landing page. All results are ordered according to a proprietry algorithm that is designed to give a lot of weight to the safety of the destination site.
We provide a safety indicator to each result
In order to ensure the user understands the risk involved in clicking on a link even before she decides to click, a 5earch indicator is assigned to every link. This allows you to view the relevancy+safety score of each specific link.
Jumping to an unsafe page is
only permitted after confirmation
We take an even stronger security measure with alarmingly disturbing destination sites and in case of a click on such link we allow you to regret your decision by springing up a question box that explains the danger of proceeding to that link.
Post and read Facebook
comments for each search result
5earch is a social search engine which gives you the tools to share and comment the results. In a single click you can share an interesting link with your friends or add information so that your friends can read your thoughts on the destination site.

Easily & quickly search what others
are saying about a site on twitter
Realtime search is another 5earch feature we are proud of. If there's an interesting information that can be added from real time search sites like twitter to the result list we'll be sure to notify you so that you can get a sense of the sentiment over the web on that topic
Results are sorted into topics
5earch helps you refine your search by presenting a topic box in the right end of the page. This way you can manually refine your original search query and fine new and interesting pieces of information.
