    Just noticed Altavista has a whole new look. Too bad no one uses them, i have some nice placements with them.

    It's on the inside that counts.

    It's been a few months since I actually received traffic from altavista so hopefully they'll start some marketing campaign or something. I actually used them to do web searching once upon a time.

    AV is dead. The only relevent SERP's are the Overture sponsered listings-The top four and the right flank of Googlesque clones. If anyoneone does bother to look at actual AV SERP's the results are a joke. RIP AV

    Don't get me wrong, I love and am "very" thankfull for google and the traffic it provides but it would sure be nice to get traffic from another search engine other than google, yahoo, aol and msn.

    Just in case.

    Yeah AV is dead.. used to be my favorite engine cause it updated quickly. I knew I could find the new sites there and it gave good results.

    Then they changed everything and I couldn't find anything anymore. Why did they do that? Suicidal?

    Who is using Inktomi results these days?

    hello,

    just noticed an algo shift at altavista today.
    they are also displaying:

    Refreshed in past 24 hours
    Refreshed in past 48 hours

    to listings that have obviously been updated in the past few days.

    I am seeing rather good results for most of our clients in their index.
    They have had a major update and change of algo since 2 days ago.
    I like some of the results i am seeing.
    Hopefully they will continue to refresh there database often and get there spam filters right to get rid of the spam i see now and again a fair bit in there index.

    However it looks like a major improvement and i hope they will get some Pre-Google users back to AV if they continue to refresh and adjust.

    I'm actually surprised a "tiny" bit of traffic actually has come through from AV today.

    i was actually fairly suprised when i checked one of our clients stats packages so i decided to take a "closer" look to my suprise seems to be a big algo change for the better.
