Neeva | October 07, 2022
Search engine Neeva has today launched in Europe to rival Google, by giving web users honest search results, no tracking, and with absolutely no advertisements or affiliate links.
Neeva puts users first and gives consumers control to customise their web search experiences. By eschewing ads and advertisers, Neeva eliminates corporate bias that has plagued the traditional search experience. Instead, Neeva's sole goal is to create a search engine that delivers the best results as quickly as possible. Neeva delivers honest results and empowers users to select their information sources such as news outlets, shopping, software engineering sites, travel and others based on personal preference and relevance, rather than what advertisers suggest, all while respecting users’ privacy by blocking third party tracking and never profiting off of user data.
Neeva’s European expansion follows a successful 2021 $40mm Series B funding round. Founded by Sridhar Ramaswamy (ex-SVP of Ads at Google) and Vivek Raghunathan (ex-VP of Monetization at YouTube), Neeva is reinventing web search for good, challenging Google’s web-search dominance.
Commenting on Neeva’s launch, CEO, Sridhar Ramaswamy said: “Neeva is a user-first platform focused on private, transparent searches versus a search engine serving advertisers."
Commenting on Neeva’s launch, CEO, Sridhar Ramaswamy said: “Neeva is a user-first platform focused on private, transparent searches versus a search engine serving advertisers. The internet should be your private corner of the web instead of a barrage of ads, SEO spam and irrelevant information. We’re reinventing search by giving users control over sources; providing accurate and transparent results as well as private and customised experiences without the influence of corporate bias, tracked around the web.”
Neeva offers a freemium model and will first launch its private, ad-free free basic service in Europe, later introducing its premium subscription model with additional features such as a VPN and password manager. Neeva operates its own independent search stack, returning lightning fast results with high levels of accuracy, drawing from an index of billions of web pages. In addition, Neeva enables users to connect personal applications like email, Dropbox, Slack, Figma and others making it easy to search across the most important personal documents while maintaining strict privacy controls.
“Google has dominated the search engine market, maintaining over 90 percent market share. Neeva will challenge this supremacy by creating a better search and browse experience that delights users,” says Mr Ramaswamy. He added: “Users should be in control of their search and web experience rather than accepting one company deciding the information they see. The ad-supported internet, has created vastly misaligned incentives that have made Big Technology monopolies and advertisers richer while exploiting the privacy and personal data of users. It’s time for a new approach to search that puts people first.”
To date, search alternatives to Big Tech have mostly offered stronger privacy but at the expense of diminished search quality. Neeva is unique in building its own independent search stack (crawling, indexing and serving at scale) and without ads, freeing it to design user-first features with the sole focus of providing the best results in the most efficient way possible all with the strong privacy one should expect and demand from today’s internet experience.
Neeva is growing fast, gaining more than 600,000 monthly users since launching in the USA in 2021. Investors include Sequoia Capital, Greylock Ventures, Inovia Capital, and Neythri Futures Fund. The company has raised over $80m from its investors.
Neeva is the world’s first user-first private search engine. Neeva takes search back to its roots by focusing entirely on the user, delivering high quality results without any ads, giving users control over their sources, and protecting user privacy by blocking trackers. Neeva’s independent search stack offers rich visual experiences, integrates community forum content, and search over personal applications. Learn more and start searching today at neeva.com.
Full Circle Insights | April 06, 2022
Full Circle Insights today announced that the company's popular Digital Source Tracker (DST) product now connects digital marketing costs from Microsoft Advertising to the client's customer relationship management (CRM) system. This enables digital marketers to see cost information from Microsoft Advertising and/or Google Ads as part of the DST's comprehensive view of the customer journey. The new release expands on the already robust reporting capability of DST for both digital and non-digital marketing attribution and funnel metrics. Taken together, these functionalities allow B2B marketers to track advertising impact on revenue and allocate spend to their most productive campaigns – all right inside the CRM.
Microsoft Advertising is the second-most-popular advertising network after Google Ads. With Full Circle's integration of Microsoft Advertising into DST, B2B digital marketers can now report on their digital ad costs for Microsoft Search Network, including Bing and partner sites. This offers a richer perspective and clearer view of digital ad spending across multiple ad platforms. It also shows how these ads and costs contribute to digital responses and revenue, which is valuable information for anyone looking to stretch their marketing dollars to the fullest.
Full Circle presents this new information in a way that's easy to access and understand. Digital marketers can now include the cost analysis for their Microsoft Advertising ads in Full Circle reports and dashboards that track items such as cost per lead, cost per marketing qualified lead and more. This functionality is now live with DST users able to set up the Bing integration, update reports and dashboards and take advantage of the new capability immediately.
DST solves a persistent marketing attribution problem B2B marketers encounter: the inability to connect digital marketing touches to leads and opportunities inside the CRM. DST makes those connections visible. As a result, digital marketers can create more accurate marketing attribution models. Now that DST supports Microsoft Advertising and Google Ads, these attribution models are now even more precise.
"Tracking costs across digital ad networks can be tricky, but this new Digital Source Tracker release simplifies it," said Bonnie Crater, President and CEO of Full Circle Insights.
