New Social Search Engine Targets Boomers

"Eons, a social network for the over-50 crowd launched last year by Monster.com founder Jeff Taylor, has launched a new Web search engine that will apply user behavior from its network to sort search results.

Cranky.com is built on a base of Ask.com's index, with editorial oversight from Eons' team, and an initial behavioral 'lens' created using data from market research firm Compete's panel. Compete has been tracking the user activity in its panel for more than a year, and will extract the top 5,000 sites visited by users in the over-50 demographic to use their behavior as a relevance filter for Cranky.com's search."

How so? What's so special about eons other than having been sequoia backed?
