Attrakt.com is: SEARCH – SAVE – SOCIAL. A smart search engine, a way to save your favourite sites (as well as read and search within them), a way to share your knowledge with others.
Attrakt S.r.l. is an Italian Company founded in April 2011 and based in Florence.
Our mission is to develop useful tools for internet users to increase choices an interactions.
Attrakt’s main project is Attrakt.com, a free Customizable Search Engine with a social layer.
More about Attrakt.com?
Create "boxes" for themes that interest you (like "cooking" or "basketball" or "travel").
Add website links to the box. Make as many boxes as you want. Now you can search inside your box – the results of this search will be from the sites you like most.
Think of it this way: if you like cooking, and for new recipes you usually go to 10 different sites and search in each one, Attrakt.com makes it easier because you search in just one place.

Attrakt.com is a smart search engine that is different, personal, social.
Search for anything on Attrakt.com and the results you get are highly relevant. This is because they come from two very smart sources. The first smart source is YOU! Registered users save sites that are associated with certain topics (you can call these keywords or categories or whatever). We figure you know what you're doing, so we give more weight to the sites you save. The second smart source, excuse us for saying so, is the Attrakt team ☺. We've developed a powerful algorithm (with the name: ELECTRO) that finds the really important stuff on websites and cuts out the "filler". The results you see combine the websites you and other users have saved with those that our system thinks are best.
Use Attrakt.com to keep track of the sites you visit most. Like a "bookmark"… but with lots more features.
Sign up to start using the advanced features of Attrakt.com. Create "boxes" for themes that interest you (like "cooking" or "basketball" or "travel"). Add website links to the box, either manually, or by using the toolbar widget (forthcoming). Make as many boxes as you want. Combine them. Share them .
Now you can search inside your box – the results of this search will be from the sites you like most. Think of it this way: if you like cooking, and for new recipes you usually go to 10 different sites and search in each one, Attrakt.com makes it easier because you search in just one place.
You can also use your box like an improved RSS Reader: you can save any kind of site in the box (including ones that don't have an RSS feed). Use the "read" feature to see updates from your saved websites by date or topic.
Use Attrakt.com to share your expertise and benefit from other users' experience.
If you've made a box about a topic, we figure you're probably well informed about that topic. Other people with similar interests can benefit from the box full of useful links you've made. Users can "follow" public boxes (just like on twitter) and receive updates from boxes they follow. Search for topics and use other peoples' boxes as the starting point for your own.
Share your boxes on facebook or twitter – let everyone see the websites you've collected in your box, or someone else's interesting box.
When version 1.2 is released (expected date 30/06/2012), Attrakt.com will become even more social and will reward contributors (with a star or klout system). Start by following @Attrakt now on twitter… cool things will start happening soon.
Thank you. Yeah, YOU! Attrakt.com is a SMART search engine. Users like you help it grow every day. When you put a useful site in your box, it'll help other people find it later.

Does Attrakt.com save my search or box preferences? No, of course not! The Attrakt.com search engine improves thanks to the sites you save, but in no way do we track single users' movements or preferences. That said, be aware that your Attrakt.com boxes ARE PUBLIC – other users can see your box and username (*unless you opt for the "private box" feature).
