Celebrity alert! Ashton Kutcher swung by the blekko offices last week for an investor meeting. If you didn’t know, Ashton invested in the start up last winter. Also pictured are Rich Skrenta, CEO of blekko, and Mike Markson, VP of Marketing.
Blekko saw visits from 3.71 million unique IPs in March, the most recent full-month count that’s available. That’s a 645% spike compared to March 2011.
So why is Blekko traffic growing so quickly? Improved index quality is one, but also the increased dissatisfaction with Google.
