things are still going down the pan at inktomi, did you have a contact at freesevre that was looking into inktomi for you ? there's been so much talk about this dam database.I can remember someone saying they had a contact there didn't know if that was you.
Today had an e-mail from BT (the only SE to reply, good old BT)
" Many thanks for your email.
We have raised this with Inktomi Support and they are currently
investigating the issue . We agree that there is currently a problem with
the search cluster and this is what Inktomi is now working to resolve.
Once again, thank you for your feedback and for pointing this out to us.
search Cluster, I think we've had someone else in the forum saying something was a mis with the cluster.
At least it looks like something is happening, at long last

The last thing I heard from my contact at Freeserve was last Friday when they said they had not yet had a full answer from Inktomi but there was a problem with add URL rankings. On Freeserve, people who are using Freeserve Marketplace are meant to come up above the normal Inktomi rankings. Freeserve were having a problem getting this to work properly and asked me if I had any idea how Inktomi were now spidering!!!
The add URL problem is the same thing which Canada.com have been saying. Could be the search clusters are finding it difficult to cope with Inktomi's experiments as they filter in different ways and serve up different databases depending on usage, terms and relevence - but that's just a guess!
Any news from your Inktomi contact in London? At least BT have given a reasonably meaningful reply!

Looks like Inktomi has been doing some shuffling this morning. I see that the results are different from last night. But I still don't see any of my pages in. Bummer! Just what are they up to???

I was just looking at the spider activity for Inktomi. Lately, quite of few of the Inktomi spider seems to come by but I don't see any of them crawling. They may hit a single page and then the index page. But that's about it. I don't see it crawling.

the database is starting to show some of my listing but only if i do a exact search, which although "something is better than nothing" most of my clients only just about know how to search.
lets hope the database is starting to come back on line.
Micheal, time to celebrate, better get the vodka and Cointreau out,but there again who needs a reason the weekend's here :)
