    Got this info from Search Engine Watch today:

    + iLOR Dumps Google for Ask/Teoma

    Just as the "I love Google" movement has seemingly reached its zenith,
    search engine iLOR has made a contrarian move away from being powered by
    Google to using the Ask Jeeves/Teoma web index.

    "The changeover is due to a variety of reasons, including the power of the
    new Teoma technology," according to Steve Mansfield, Chief Executive
    Officer of iLOR.


    Maybe the beginning of the end for all-powerful Google? The author of the article doesn't think this move will affect Google much, but maybe their dominance is starting to slide?

    I actually suspect that Yahoo will dump Google when the contract is up. I am thinking BendOverture will then provide the web page results.

    Pardon my ignorance, but who is iLOR? Do they go by another name that I might recognize?

    Cedric,

    They seem to be small but are at http://www.ilor.com

    More from the same article....

    "Though still somewhat obscure, iLOR has
    garnered both favorable press attention and a significant increase in
    users, from zero last April to over 2.4 million page views and over
    600,000 unique visitors per month today with only word-of-mouth exposure,
    according to Mansfield."

    I find the use of the Teoma engine interesting.. it's a bit of a Google-esqe dark horse like Wisenut.

    Don't think I've ever had a single hit from Teoma though.
