According to the stats from one of my blogs, people are using inSing.com as a search engine. I think this is good news for the inSing.com team and thumb up for choosing Google search engine technology. Yes, I am very tempted to compare inSing.com enhanced by Google search with SPH’s Rednano search but I do not have sufficient evidence to conduct a fair comparison.
Anyway, inSing.com was not intended to be a search engine, unlike Rednano which original intention was to “supplant the big names of Google and Yahoo as the prime tool for sourcing local information”.

The second point is that a properly SEO‘ed web page gets traffic not only from Google search but also from portals like inSing.com which implemented enhanced by Google search results.
