Paying INKTOMI when YAHOO kissed them off...

Could you image what it would have been like had we been paying INKTOMI when YAHOO kissed them off. Remember this is a NO REFUNDS no matter what, deal.

With that in mind and the fact that almost no one delivers pure INK results anymore, what's the value here.

What happens to your investment if MSN moves on. And would the money be better spent on GOTO considering their partnership with AOL now. With all the directories coming into play with the INKTOMI portals, it's difficult to get "first page" placement even if you are number one.

So how much are you willing to gamble each year that INKTOMI will maintain a relationship with their current partners???

Paying a year in advance with no guarantees? Who are they kidding???

No control over the INK partners sticking around? Who are they kidding???

Pay INKTOMI or find yourself at the bottom of the pile? Who are they kidding???

Wouldn't you love to be a "fly on the wall" of the GOOGLE marketing board-room?

NADA honey, there is a big difference between a gamble and a calculated risk.

"Wouldn't you love to be a "fly on the wall" of the GOOGLE marketing board-room?"

I sure would, but if I had any spare speculative cash to invest, just going by "hunch value" I would very likely invest in alltheweb. I get the "feel good fuzzies" about them, and I think they bear watching.

Agreed Marcia. I like alltheweb... and they like my pages! Methinks they are planning a rollout of some kind. They've grabbed a few new domains, and are being well distributed. I suspect an "Inktomi-like" distribution very soon. Their search processing is formidable. Watch out Ink, alltheweb/Fast will be a major player.
