Raging Search VS Altavista Han_Chung msg:24609 11:12 pm on May 31, 2000 (gmt 0) Hi,
Does Altavista and Raging Search both look at the same database for their results? Do they use different algorithms to determine page rankings?
I have a site that ranks #1 on Altavista, but it doesn't even appear on page 1 on Raging Search.

When they first announced, AV said that the algorithm was the same. But I just checked my site and you are right. I rank #2 in Raging and #1 in AV (woohoo!) and Raging lists 341,505 pages found while AV finds only 32,366 ???

The majority looks virtually identicle to me. Funny article on Raging from Research Buzz.
