Re: Did Altavista drop support for proximity (NEAR operator)?
I don't know what the heck's the matter with them. Their advanced
interface broke a couple of months ago. All of a sudden, queries of
X and Y
started yielding all pages with X *or* Y. And, as you note, "near"
doesn't work any more.
I've been using AltaVista since before there *was* a Google, and the
proximity feature and wild cards were the reasons why it was my
primary search engine. Now I have no use for it.
