Sentimnt – Your Personal Search Engine

Cash Award: Feedback/Reviews Awarded $5 Each. No Awards Remaining.

Sentimnt - Featured on StartUpLift

Sentimnt is a personal and social search engine. It connects to your social network and websites you read daily and builds your own private search engine based on that so you can easily find what you’ve already seen and read.

Sentimnt only searches your data, so you’re not going to get back millions of “hits” (if you were Googling, for example), but just a few and therefore find what you are looking for much easier and quicker.

  • Check out the search results.

    I was very confused when it asked me to sign in with my Google account. Not sure if that was your website or StartUpLift.

    I was also a bit confused with the invitation code item. Not sure if this is for all users, but I would certainly just go to Google to search because it is simpler.

    I do like the general idea of the website. I also like the design it was sharp. I bookmarked your website and will be checking back for updates to use again. Thanks!

    First I like the page design and use of colors and whitespace. I do think you could simplify the wording on the left. It seems too busy and your tagline/elevator pitch should stand out. Not just saying it’s a personal search engine, but saying what that means and who it is for.

    You have 3 links on the home page to sign in. I think you could limit that since people who already have an account will find the sign in in the upper right. You want to focus more on converted users who do not yet have an account. Simplify the page to do everything you can to convert them.

    I think your site could really use a video or demo to help visitors understand what it does and who it is for. Maybe you could even say “Who is Sentimnt for?”

    Great start though!

    I’m not sure about the value proposition of this. Why would I use this product over Google and/or something like Google Reader. Seems like both of these tools can do what you are offering.
    Overall, the design seems pretty basic. Too much whitespace for me.

    I think this is a great service. Many of us search everyday in google and forget it. If some service can bring it back in nice indexable form, it has value. I also like the white spaces, simple clutter free environment.
