Major Algo Change?

 5:11 pm on Mar 12, 2000 (gmt 0)

Wooweeee I've never seen Hotbot differ so wildly from the other Ink's before. Just checked Hotbot and the page that Yahoo Ink and Iwon.com list as #1 ... (and HotBot had me as #2 after the ODP/Direct hit results) that #1 page now ranks at number 38 on Hotbot!! What the?!?! And I've noticed the rotating results slowing down considerably.... got the exact same results about 5 searches in a row when it finally rotated it was very slight... only a change of 2 places on a few listings.

Anyone else noticing wildly different results?

I do know this. I'm getting tons of traffic from Ink.Yahoo today, and nothing, zip, zero, nada from Hotbot. Go figure!

Ace, we must optimize indenticle - our pages and rankings seem to shadow each other all the time. We are doing excellent on Ink.hoo and horrible on hotbot too.

Still the same... kicking it on ink.yahoo and just dropped to page 4 or 5 on Hotbot
