Does anyone get much traffic from Cuil?

Msg#: 4121479 posted 10:51 pm on Apr 24, 2010 (gmt 0)

I'm just wondering how much traffic this search engine produces for other people. I made a site recently and Twiceler has been hitting me constantly for months. I never get any traffic from it though so I'm thinking it's just a waste of my bandwidth. Is it worth waiting and trying to optimise the site or does Cuil not produce much traffic anyway?

I recently began accepting twiceler because Cuill is used, with several other SEs, by the meta engine that I now use instead of google, and which I recommend to my customers.

Of the two sites I keep tabs on, one of them our most widely accessed site, I have yet to see a single hit from Cuill itself.

These stats are from January 1 until yesterday:

All traffic sources sent a total of 3,934,443 visits

All traffic sources sent 0 visits via 0 sources and mediums
Filtered for sources and mediums containing "cuil"

ADDED: the same site got exactly two visits referred by Cuil.com last year ... one on April 15 and the other on August 10.

The only traffic that Cuil ever sent me was my own. I was checking my sites in Cuil. It's been 403ed for the last few weeks and I made sure that it got robots.txt before banning it. Still hammers away despite getting 403s. I don't have the highest respect for the technological abilities of the people in Cuil. In Irish, the name means a fly or a bug. And in that it is living up to its name.
