THE 16-YEAR-OLD Paddock Wood student who is aiming to take on Google, is hoping his search engine can help small businesses.

Since the launch of the search engine, Boogami, James Wildish has sold more than 64,000 pixels depicting companies' logos for £1 each pixel.

The Hugh Christie student has now added a number of innovative features to help small businesses profit from the internet.

James said: "I know how difficult it is for small businesses to establish themselves on the internet and compete with the large companies who have deep pockets and are able to invest heavily in advertising and marketing with the big search engines.

"It means they struggle to be found by surfers; and people using the internet find it difficult to source products and services from small companies that offer a personal service or cheaper product.

"The internet is not a level playing field and I want Boogami to be a search engine that offers all businesses and not just the large companies a fair crack of the whip."

One of the innovations is Boogami Doorways, which enables anyone who can type and click to build web pages that can be optimised for their keywords and found by all the search engines.

James said: "Doorways can be used to launch a new internet business or linked into any existing website that is struggling to be found on other search engines."
