About this project

The Pain

Can I find things by just one click instead of sorting out from numerous search result?

Where is that fancy keyboard I came across on Google yesterday?

How can I create a shopping list easily by a few clicks?

Where can I expose my blogs to reach more people?

Watch the video and see what people say.

The Benefit

BingoBo is the next generation of search engine that does not directly compete with the traditional search engines, such as Google, Bing and Yahoo, etc. It provides enhanced functionalities and tools for users to find, save and share information easily and efficiently with just a few clicks. It serves as an alternative solution of Web 3.0 to the existing Semantic Web applications via a pair of public/private views. It is

  • A better search engine (Why?)

  • A self-organized private web for users (What?)

  • A low-cost SEO solution for businesses (How?)

1. BingoBo is a classified search engine powered by human intelligence with One-Click Search™

  • Drill down the categories when you don't know exactly what the best keywords are

  • Search by simple keywords instead of trying various keyword combinations

  • Narrow down the search results quickly by clicking only one of the interesting results which leads to the particular sub-category with all the information relevant to your search

  • Easy to do filtering, sorting by price, brand, number of hits/subscriptions and get up-to-date discount prices from various stores or sellers

  • Roam between local site and remote sites where they all look the same but with the local specialty information collected by each site

Since the information collected by the BingoBo system is pre-filtered either by the software robots (using Super Agent™) or powered by human intelligence (shared by premium users and input by the Authorized Publishers™), you can see quality data with high relevancy beyond expectation. All kinds of relevant information (blog/wiki/report/review/recipe/product/service) are grouped together for you to review before you make a decision to buy. Instead of tracking your search behavior and re-targeting the advertisement on you, we leave the control in your hand to pull the information pertaining your needs.

2. BingoBo helps you to keep your favorite information up to date in one place

  • Save all the useful information in your Private Web by clicking from the mirrored Public Web

  • Get automatic updates on the information saved

  • Generate various types of lists to carry with you

  • Input the quality information manually and share with the public

Premium users have the following privileges in their private webs:

  • Enjoy the highest confidential level

  • Option to turn off the top level commercial
  • Create your inner circles (buddies, alumni, colleagues, partners, relatives, community, etc.) and record their contact information

  • Create family tree and keep the health history records, etc.

  • Share information and send messages among various circles of friends

BingoBo is the only place where you can easily and effortlessly create your Private Web because this technology is patent pending. The monthly primary membership fee will be increased with $1 per year. So register early to lock in your lowest price now, which is the pre-history rate of $4 per month, for ever. It will increase every month until it reaches the official product release for $5 per month and go from there. But don't worry, BingoBo allows you to earn free membership using BingoBo Coins.

3. BingoBo serves as an additional channel for businesses to reach your target audience more closely. It helps you to expand your customer base with various price breaks to fit your large or small marketing budget

  • Post your products/services page links in the right category and sub-category where customers are looking for them

  • Choose different level of exposure to reach your customers with various price breaks instead of tuning keywords combinations

  • Have affiliates (Authorized Publisher™) to help you to get your products/services listed instead of hiring expensive marketing consulting company

  • Connect to the local sub-sites (Super Agent™) to have your promotion data integrated with the BingoBo system and updated automatically

  • Reduce the marketing budget significantly compared with Pay-Per-Click (PPC) or any other SEO marketing strategies

Moreover, join the Early Bird program will make you gain the unfair competitive edge which allows you to exclude one or two of your competitors from having their products/services being listed for free until the competitors decide to join BingoBo. And it allows you to avoid bidding when the space gets more and more crowded. A most top level commercial, which will be shown to the non-registered users every time they switch between top categories, may cost $10,000 per month without competition. Right now they are all free listing. Grab the right spot best suits your business needs and stay in front of the competition.

The Fun

Premium membership is not free, but you can have a lot of fun by earning the free membership using BingoBo Coins, which is a consumable virtual currency transferable but not exchangeable on BingoBo website:

  • Sharing quality information in the proper categories with the public, up to 1000 per month and earn 1 BingoBo Coin for each.

  • Transferring BingoBo Coins to anybody else who has a BingoBo user account as a gift and helping them to earn.

Further more, you can speed up your earning of BingoBo Coins and may find a way to exchange with BitCoin outside BingoBo by:

  • Play the modified version of the "Trick or Treat" game by anonymously knocking on the door of any premium user, asking for donation of 1% of his BingoBo Coins to share half of it with charity, leaving you with the rest half. If the user rejects, you may complain in his/her mail box. Otherwise, you may thank him/her for his/her sharing in his/her mail box which will increase his/her social rating. Then the user will be compensated by BingoBo with 1.2% of his original amount of BingoBo Coins.

  • Playing the modified version of "The Hunger Game" by attacking any participant premium user and asking for donation of 5% of his BingoBo Coins. The user can choose to reject, surrender or give you a challenge rendered by the BingoBo system. If you work out the challenge, you receive the 5%. The user will be compensated by BingoBo with 6% of his original amount of BingoBo Coins.

Of course, smart users may fight back. But be aware and cautious when you start to attack, because you never know how many BingoBo Coins the user has. If he/she has less than yours and he/she attacks back, you may lose more than him/her literally and psychologically. :)

The Deal

If you donate any amount of money for BingoBo, you will receive more than double of your money back in various of ways in the future. We will treat you as our a long term friends, keep you updated with the latest progress we make and reward you in the long run. I don't promise something which I cannot guarantee here. But once BingoBo gets the chance to thrive, we will not forget to share with you. Because we fully understand that we cannot make it happen without your help.

The fund we gather from you will not be used to buy office chairs. Not all the features listed above are fully available in production yet. We will continuously implement more useful features based on the feedback from you. We will use every penny carefully to achieve our goal, which is to provide a better public web and ensure you have a more secure and private web. We need to:

  • Subscribe more dedicated hosting server instances to support more local sub sites

  • Purchase and renew more SSL certificates and domain names

  • Outsource the development and QA work for mobile devices

  • Hire freelancers to do web design, feature enhancement and conduct internal system testing

  • Cover minimum operational costs

Remember that even if the project fails to reach the goal, you may still receive the perks except the goodies which we are willing to send but cannot afford to give for now. So feel free to back up, we will really appreciate your help.

If you are not able to donate, but  interested in participating the public beta test, you will also receive free premium membership and BingoBo Coins as rewards for your participation.

The Goal

The project is aimed to reach out as many people as possible to spread the message out and acquire sufficient amount of fund to support the continuous effort of the development, enhancement and deployment of BingoBo sites. The project may be broken into several phases, with each phase focusing on different groups of target audience.

For this particular 45 days, we plan to have more than 100 beta users sign up with BingoBo, who will be rewarded with double the amount of BingoBo Coins they earn during the beta testing. It will let them keep their premium membership free after BingoBo goes production with the lowest pre-history rate of $4 per month. How much fund we may generate from this project varies. It really depends on your generosity and kindness. We are shooting for $5000 for the first phase.

BingoBo is a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) under beta testing stage right now. We will gradually build up to its full capacity based on user feedback. Currently the data we have only supports part of the "Refrigerator", "Office" and "Kitchen" because adding categories and sub-categories systematically is a time-consuming task. I'll give you updates on this project for the latest changes we'll make over this 45 days period of time. With your great help, we will see a well-organized web towards Web 3.0 sooner.

Please make sure you follow the paths shown in the videos to get the best understanding for the first trial. Later on, you can feel free to save as many data as you like. If you particularly need certain category to be available, we will be happy to add it immediately.

Don't panic when you see the popup commercials every time when you switch zones. After you sign in, they will be only shown once. If you are a premium user, you may turn it off completely (pending). And BTW, they are very entertaining, hand-picked free commercial from YouTube.

Visit BingoBo.com right now and try it out:

  • Watch the videos by clicking the links on BingoBo's home page

  • Sign up and reserve your name before other people take it

  • Follow the video step by step to try the typical scenarios (Refrigerator, Office, etc.). Pick your favorite things available in the public view and save them, then go to the private view and see it sitting in your private web

  • Manually add a quick link from outside BingoBo and share it with the public, you will see that it appears in both the public view and your private view

  • You have the control to update or remove the data in your Private Web as you like

Let's us know how you like it or why you hate it. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

All the goodies, such as thank you card, pan cup, mouse pad, notebook, T-shirt and hoodies should be delivered on time since they can be ordered online and ship under schedule. The risk resides in delivering the fun part of the games which may be delayed depending on how many users sign up. If there are not enough premium users, it does not make sense to have a few users beat with each other back and forth.

So please take action to join the BingoBo membership and start to build your private web. It could be just a few clicks away when you subscribe a published link, or copy and paste your interesting links into your private web and share with other people. Invite more friends to join and have fun together to see your BingoBo Coins grow.
