Wikipedia (2009):»Delver is a web search engine that displays results prioritized based upon the searcher’s social network and community. It works by indexing users’ social connections (the social graph) and their online contributions, and ranking search results by the relation between the searcher and target documents. Such results may include blogs, photos, videos, web pages, articles, reviews and more.

The concept behind Delver was first introduced in DEMO'08 [DEMO conference 2008], and an initial public version was launched later that year on July 15th. In November that year, Delver announced integration with Yahoo!'s BOSS search framework.

Delver Communications, the company behind Delver, was founded in 2007 by co-founders Liad Agmon, Avital Yachin and Sagie Davidovitch. Until March 2009, the company was privately held and backed by Carmel Ventures. In March 2009, Sears Holdings Corporation announced that it had purchased Delver, after Delver had announced at the end of January 2009 that it was running out of funds and would shut down in 30 days unless it was sold or was saved some other way« Source
