Psykoo, A Visual Search Engine - Try it You Just Might Like It

Have you heard of Psykoo?  It's a visual search engine which displays search results in images rather than a description (like Google).

Below is what I got when I searched the word "iphoneography" on Google:

And here's what I got when I searched the same word on Psykoo:

When you click on the Pictures tab in Psykoo, you have the option of searching Tumblr, Instagram (this tab didn't work for me and I've reported it to Psykoo), Flickr, 500PX, Bing, Google.  **UPDATE** Instagram search is now working.

And a really cool feature is when you search the Video tab you can view videos right from the Psykoo page!

  1. Thanks for the tip. I tried this out and like it! It's a great way to visually understand someone's presence on the web. I looked up Sarah Jarrett and could immediately see all the places I could follow her great work. Thanks!

    1. I like it to - it's much easier to view the images than have to read all the descriptions - it's a nice alternative.
