Why is being closed?

Ramaswamy and Raghunathan introduced the choice on Saturday, doing so in an official company blog post. The 2 former Google executives attributed the transfer to a mixture of ‘difficulty in acquiring users,’ and the ‘different economic environment.’

“Throughout this journey, we’ve discovered that it is one thing to build a search engine, and an entirely different thing to convince users of the need to switch to a better choice. Contrary to popular belief, convincing users to pay for a better experience was actually a less difficult problem compared to getting them to try a new search engine in the first place,” they mentioned.

“These headwinds have made it clear that there is no longer a path towards creating a sustainable business in consumer search,” the co-founders added.

Neeva was based in 2019 as an ad-free, privacy-focused search engine.
