    I guess it's official now, just saw the CNN.com article . We all knew this day was coming . Yahoo is expected to drop Google as early as the first quarter .

    Will they be using Ink? You can see where you stand with Ink at Hot Bot using the Hot Bot option.

    Losing track of my forums and may be repeating myself. (Yet again.)

    I think it's a good idea to have more than one major search engine in the game. Having all your eggs in one basket doesn't serve you well if Google drops the basket.

    I'm seeing Inktomi at Yahoo right now! Maybe they are testing? No doubt about it.

    Yes been seeing some testing going on. Getting some traffic on and off from Yahoo where i only have a listing in INK. I wish they would go ahead and do it so i can see where i'm at.

    I'm getting these hits as well from pages that I know are only indexed in Inktomi.

    The signs I'm seeing seem to indicate that they may be using the Inktomi feed for durations as short as a minute or so.

    Yeah, it looks that way, some spot testing. A page I made a few days ago and did INK paid inclusion is getting a few hits from Yahoo today. Looks like all the paid inclusions will pay off once they finally switch.
