We’re on it again! It’s been ages since we had our last paid review request over at this blog. Today, we will be reviewing a established web service by the name of Duneier. Duneier.net is a sophisticated rapidshare search engine that indexed rapidshare links throughout the internet. It has a “google” interface that provides a simple and clean yet easy to use feel. Unlike other similar rapidshare search engine that purely just run on turnkey scripts, Duneier rapidshare search engine has their own unique crawler (bot) that index links from the internet every seconds.
For those of you who might not be that techy savy enough, a crawler is a script that is written by the engineers to collect specific data from the internet ( websites). A powerful crawler plays a important part in defining how big the search engine can grow into. Since the launch of Duneier rapidshare search engine, it has already indexed over 8 millions rapidshare links. Instead of just indexing links, i am told by the engineers behind Duneier that their crawler are actually capable of scanning the indexed links and check each and every links if their status are ok or deleted. If in any case where the links are deleted, the entries will be removed from their server database.
Before writing this review, i have been experimenting with the website, testing the features, the speed between searches etc. I have tried searching links for flashforward season 1 and demi lovato albums. You can go straight to the search page by clicking on the hyperlinks to see how it looks. The presentation of the results are pretty good and straightforward. A music file is represented by media player icon, a video file by digital film icon and a zip/rar file by a package icon. This is good as it allows users to differentiate between different file formats at the first glance.
There might be many questions on asking, why use Duneier rapidshare search engine while i can use google search? The answer is simple. It’s a more “niche” service. And i suppose that Duneier will be more efficient if you are searching for only files hosted on rapidshare. However, i am not saying that google search ain’t that good for searching rapidshare files. Use google if you can’t find what you want on Duneier, afterall google is notable for their ability to return most relevant results and their immense database.
Ways to improve the site
For every review here in future, we will be giving the owner some feedbacks that we thought can be implemented to improve their website further. As a web designer myself, i feel that the logo can be improved further. A catchy and memorable logo can create good brand awareness for the audience. Also, more features on the result page further enhance the presentation of information. One good example will be the ratings, to allows users to rate the listing, whether the file is relevant or correct. Comments is also another good way of getting feedbacks. Users can comment on listing, whether the video is of good quality or not. All these simple features can allows other users to know if that’s the correct file that they wants.
So if you are looking for rapidshare links, why not give Duneier rapidshare search engine a try? Hope it helps.
