Search Engine Relevency Testing

I found this post in Search Engine RoundTable about RustySearch:
This pie chart shows the "most relevant" search engine by averaging the scores of all the ratings. The search engine listed at the top, is the most relevant engine. The number to the right of the name in the legend is the average rating for that seach engine. We then plotted that data in the pie chart.


This link graph groups search engines by rating. The reason we plotted it on a graph like this is to show you that there is this U shaped curve that is consistent between all search engines when rated. In our opinion, it means that most people either feel the results are relevant or not relevant. Very few people feel that a search engine can be "somewhat" relevant.
