Wow! Good work tigger! I would greatly appreciate the updates on that. So there isn't 2 databases huh? Interesting... I wonder what the MSN thing was then? Maybe they are on a different DB like how some people theorize that GOO is on an isolated DB.

Yes, I must admit it would be interesting to finally get to the bottom of this. I was just reading the posting from "makemetop" relating to the url submission process and he thinks that this is causing the problems.
The thing that I was so surprised about was the chap in London was completely (genuinely) unaware of any problem but even he could admit after doing some searches that things weren't working right.
Maybe there is still hope for us yet. I know one thing we are all going to need a stiff drink when this is all over!!! Lets hope this time round it lasts for longer than a few weeks.

Canada.com also giving the answer I got according to [url]http://searchengineforums.com/Forum25/HTML/0000237.htm[url]
Could be a marketing guy here for Inktomi? Having worked for US organisations in the UK I know that often on technical matters we could be the last to know! As for 2 databases, how about 1 database and a filter which shows 'core' results when they are working on the DB and 'full' results when filter is off? Only thing I can think of given the on/off nature of the past few weeks.

Certainly something funny going on at INK out of 3 sites that were previously on INK at the same time give 2 or 3 weeks one has disappeared altogether???????

I don't mind if he's a marketing guy, cleaner or senior executive, he's at least offering to try and look into this and hopefully steer us in the right direction as to what is happening.
Let's just hope that whether it's a sectioned database or smaller additional databases that this is all resolved soon, as the clients are getting restless and the vodka is running dry!

Completely agree tigger.
It sounds like your contact may actually come up with real news *pleeeeze*.
The stress is doing my liver in!

Tryed contacting my new friend at inktomi a couple of times today but he's been in a meeting all day, hopefully about their failing database.
I'll try him again monday, in the meaning the vodka's calling and hopefully next week we can all look on our rankings back within the various partners again, well you can dream :)
