Hotbot pure search no longer pure Inktomi?
Filtering results

Doing a hotbot search using the hotbot engine, so the results are from inktomi, we have noticed some changes. While the results are from inktomi, it seems that hotbot is filtering out some of the results. In one of our terms, we saw the results from inktomi positions #2, #6, and #9 not displaying in hotbot. This just happened within the last week. Some searches, however, are unmolested.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar. (And yes I know hotbot sucks and position there is basically worthless but we use it to track inktomi placement with WPG)

Inktomi update. Started last week. It's probably over by now.

I have the same problem. One of my sites ranks very well with Inktomi, but when I used HotBot I don't see it anymore listed... what is the reason for this?

Any thoughts would be appreciated..

Cheers,
