AEIWI was an Search Engine based on an automatic generated Web Directory. It analysed the keywords and sorted them by the frequency. »AEIWI was designed by Knud Soeresen, the owner of AL&L Technology, while studying at Aarhus University in Denmark. [...] As webmaster for FreakTech I tried to register with Yahoo several times... in vain. Yahoo is a manually built web directory and they can't keep up with all the submissions they receive. Therefore, I started to wonder if it were possible to make an automatic web directory. This thought grew into experiments and the experiments grew into AEIWI.« In 2006 AEIWI contained about 600000 links. »[...] AEIWI finds all pages with that [searched] keyword and calculates which other keywords are most frequent on those pages. Then AEIWI displays the 100 first of these keywords.« Source

Features & Functionality

»A little deeper: Aeiwi is a little different to use than other search engines or web directories. When you first enter Aeiwi you see the Aeiwi icon, then a search box and a list of the 100 most used keywords. Here you might notice that there is a little number behind each word, this is the number of pages that contain the keyword. You use the list of keywords like a web directory, just click on a word. If you can't see the word you are looking for just enter it into the search box. On the next page you will see first an ad, a search box, a title and a list of keywords. If you click one of the keywords you get a similar page but this page is generated from the links that contain the first keyword. Then If you click on the title then you get the list off all the links that contain the chosen keywords.« Source
