AV's back in my top 10 referrers
what is the new relationship?

 12:16 am on Jun 30, 2003 (gmt 0)

Greetings and Gidday from downunder folks,

After more than a year of nil or close to nil referrals, scooter came by a couple of weeks back and now AVs back in my top five referring SEs (1-2% per week and for the curious G comes in at 25-35% across all LDs)

Have seen several other threads refer to split sale of enterprise and search to other entities; for those of us who drop by occassionally, can someone please update (maybe in bullet point form) who bought what and when, and if anyone else has seen the improvement I've noticed, although from the posts I've read so far, no-one else seems to have seen the same kind of movement I have.

Thanks in advance
Cheers and Hooroo

1. Overture bought AV.

2. Overture bought the web search division (AlltheWeb) from FAST.

3. Overture turned around and sold the AV enterprise search department to FAST.

Overture now owns two web crawlers and has been funding some expanded crawling for AV and ATW both. AV has been increasing size and updating.

My AV traffic is also rising across the board. I assume this is because I'm ranking better as AV expands it's database it gets a better picture of the web.

If you read some AlltheWeb and AV threads here you will see a lot of interesting speculation as to what OV might have planned, but nobody knows for sure.

Gidday Brad,

thanks for that, nice summary. I got a bit cross eyed trying to figure it out from the threads.

Guess Bruce Barclays' going to have to update his excellent relationship chart again soon.
