Thank you Friends

Molu started out as a hobby in 2006 which turned out to be one of the highly liked search engines later.

During our long journey, we have seen some interesting developments together. Molu was consistently ranked among the top 100 search engines of the World.

We started the bots which are highly successful today.

As we all know, change is the need of time. So Molu also requires a transformation, some innovation and some new features. We are taking Molu off the air for sometime to provide you with a better search engine in the future. Please note that this does not mean that Molu is shutting down. Its just that Molu is getting a facelift and will come back again in style.

The search bots will continue to be online. Please use them as and when you like.

Thanks fir supporting us friends.

Regards,

Molu launches two new bots

Molu is proud to launch two new GTalk/Jabber bots today. The bots are known as:

 

1. Molu Abbreviations Bot: This bot will be used to search for full forms of abbreviations. So in case you type ROFL in your GTalk/Jabber window, you should get all the possible full forms of the abbreviation. Add moluabbr@bot.im to use the service. The service uses Abbreviations.com API and is meant for non commercial use only.

 

2. Molu Short to Long URL Converter Bot: Many a times we encounter short URLs passed on to us for viewing. We are not sure what lies behind them. May be a spam website is waiting behind the URL. To help in this area, Molu has launched a short -> Long URL conversion bot. The input can be a short URL (with hundreds of short URL services supported) and the output will be the corresponding URL for the short one. Add molus2l@bot.im to use the service. The service uses Longurl.com API and is meant for non-commercial use only.

 

Last but not the least, thanks Imified for the excellent platform.

 

Have a great year ahead.

I am pleased to announce tha launch of new GTalk/Jabber bot by the Molu. It is called moluqanda@bot.im

Just add it to your GTalk/Jabber friendlist and send any question to it. It should return an answer to it. The questions may be easy to moderately complex.

Example questions may be:

3. Who was the president of USA in 1952?
or anything you may think of.

It can also answer ‘Yes’/’No’ type of questions. Examples may be:

Molu gets a facelift…

Dear friends,

The homescreen of Molu (http://www.themolu.com) has been changed to show all the possible search options (except for Job Search) on the very first screen in a tab form.

User can select the category and sub-category (may be FlickR for images or Youtube for Videos) on the very first screen and directly search for the same.

This makes it more user friendly.

Cheers,

Himanshu Joshi
