All well and good but what about content?

This is all well and good but what about allowing a little more attention to providing better search results? The addition of a sketch pad is great, though a little inferior to similar efforts from Diigo but right now, I am more concerned about the actual selection process and the amount of junk, ads and simply unreliable wiki pages yahoo and google keep turning up. For novelty sake, this seems to work, but I do a fair amount of research and i need a site that offers a guided hand approach to research, providing viable content, like sweetsearch.com.
A nice step further but deal with your content before adding any more bells and whistles- students and researchers will thank you.
