Suzanne Sabroski (Sep/Oct 2004): »A new Australian-based Web search engine, 100.com, which launched in May 2004, has teamed with LookSmart to include its directory listings and bid-for-placement network in 100.com's search results [www.100.com; www.looksmart.com].« Source

Carl Bialik (2008): »A group in Australia plans to develop 100.com into a search engine that will deliver the 100 most relevant results.« Source

James Kendrick (2016): »Qnetwork was developed by Jeff Gold and was launched in 1998. The original URL for Qnetwork was Q.com however a lucrative offer for the domain name was taken up by Jeff, who switched the site to www.Qnetwork.com. In 1998 Jeff also launched the 100.com search engine. Both these sites were sold to Globetrotting Media, associated with the Big News Network news agency in 2002. 100.com was relaunched in 2004 with the theme that it delivers the top 100 search results for any and every search term submitted. This produced a faster, more relevant result for searchers as opposed to conventional search engines that returned tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of results, and even into the millions. 100.com garnered results from its own sources as well as other mainstream search engines. The site also provided an extensive news service covering breaking news as well as stories from various geographic locations worldwide.

In 2013, following the sale of the 100.com domain name, Globetrotting Media planned to merge the 100.com search platform and the Qnetwork entertainment portal. While this was done, the combined site was not re-launched until December 2016, and at that stage it was still a work-in-progress.« Source
