Inktomi search showing unrelated results
Just noticing this now

Hi, I just noticed that the positiontech search engine is returning strange results over the last while, completely unrelated to what I search for. For instance if I searched for golf, I got a page of results with the term Hacking in bold.
Is anyone else seeing this?

Yep, I was seeing it yesterday. Used HotBot to do checking instead. It's actually not bad, you can check several right there.

I forgot all about hotbot, haven't been there in a while. Cheers for the reminder

There's a choice now of several search engine results at Hotbot now - very handy.

I used to use MSN to check Inktomi, but now I can't access their search without signing in on their .net Passport, so I don't use their site at all any more.

Yeah, it's handy to have all the major searches on one page. You have to sign in to use their search? I haven't noticed that before, does that only apply to certain areas?

Not HotBot - I've had to sign in at MSN to use the search when using Internet Explorer.

I noticed odd results on both Positiontech and MSN, re-clicking sometimes solved it, sometimes not.
