The WebKite Story
There is an infinite amount of information available through online search. Despite endless information, the search process is limited to text matching queries and search results are manipulated by marketing techniques. The severe limitations and manipulation of search were the impetus behind WebKite founder Eric Silver’s charge to improve search.
In 2010, Eric founded Pikimal – a startup dedicated to improving the way people search for items on the web. Pioneering the decision-engine space, Pikimal helps people make fact-based decisions on everything from air conditioners to kayaks. Over the course of two years, Pikimal has become an amazing platform that redefined search.
In the summer of 2012, Pikimal took its efforts to democratize the web and improve search to new heights by evolving into WebKite–a content management system for creating specialized search and decision websites. Unlike other content management systems, WebKite provides intuitive and interactive data exploration, content growth, community tools, and brand alignment
