Guruji.com is a former Indian Internet search engine that was focused on providing better search results to Indian consumers by leveraging proprietary algorithms and data. [1] The company was founded by Anurag Dod and Gaurav Mishra, two graduates of the Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi.[1][2] It launched on October 16, 2006.

Guruji is the Devanagari word for "teacher", and is derived from the Sanskrit guru, also meaning "teacher".

In addition to its tool for searching webpages, Guruji Search also provided services for searching images, services within a specific city, music, cricket, movie timing, and finance. These were linked from the main search page.

It was acquired by Flipkart Limited, a company based in Singapore.[citation needed]
