Interesting concept, but in it's current format, to me, it still looks like a directory rather than a search engine.
Are you designing algorithms to sift through spam, refine searches etc?
I love the idea of a purely UK search engine, and thought this seemed to be going the right direction: Searchers
I love the tag line as well, "Powered by People"
But it seems to have lost momentum and traffic seems to have tailed off
