While most small and mid-level weblogs and sites act primarily as online journals or opportunities to enhance or secure respectable placement on SERPs (search engine results pages) there remains a good deal of room for tools and services which cater to the audiences of these sites - regardless of size. One such tool, Swicki from Eurekster, is a dynamic tool that adds some unique functionality to a website. The Swicki is a dynamic search tool (search engine) that learns from your users. Swicki creators (website owners) can customize their swicki to contain search results of their choosing as well as a "buzzcloud" of searches that users may be seeking information about. The end-result is an opportunity for websites to create an online locale where like-minded users find information about what is important to them by enabling you (the swicki owner) to harness the collective intelligence of your community. Based on information provided on Eurekster.com, the ability to monetize your Swicki is coming soon. The downside of using the Swicki is that search results are currently limited to those provided via Yahoo.
