- What feeds these search engines

rate this thread
and nowhere to be found on:
aol, altavista, dmoz, msn, google, wisenut, netscape.
I even hand submitted to dmoz to various places a few months ago.
where does alltheweb, hotbot and lycos pro get there results? I am wondering
why I show up on these engines and not the other. I have PR of 4 and
showing about 65 links to me.
Re: What feeds these search engines
Lycos use to use FAST, now they use Inktomi results. MSN and Looksmart uses
Inktomi. Alltheweb uses Inktomi and brings straight Inktomi results. Yahoo
of course looks like a mixture of Inktomi and a little added extra so it is
there own thing. Yahoo owns alltheweb and Alta Vista. Alta Vista brings the
same results as Yahoo. Teoma is own by Hotbot. Wisenut is part of Looksmart.
I don't know what happen to FAST and don't know anyone who uses it now. Some
of the other SE's use all of these other engines and does their own thing.
Really don't know why you are showing up as you didn't post a URL so, no one
can really say without seeing it.
