I don't know exactly when they did this, but here are the statistics:
--statistics compared from April 2003 to Feb 2004--

Documents: 10,175,600 to 14,788,223
Links: 235,827,329 to 361,123,735

Might be an engine to watch, once they graduate from 'university research' to business.

The folks in the project seem very savvy, imho.

It actually looks like a nice engine... I've never heard of it before, does anyone know how you get listed there?

Unique words I suppose, as an average of less than 1 word per page sounds quite worrying ;) 83 Million unique words though, quite a handful.

Purrl - I don't think theres as URL submissions page for Yuntis yet.

I just found out when they last updated their database:
(Data and Engine of February 2003)

...for more statistics on Yuntis' database, have a look at:

a pretty cool engine in my opinion. Have to just wait for it to become 'commercial'.

Well slap me silly.. I went to yuntis.com LOL totally different. However I have to say that I like the "real deal" much better.. my.. there is tons of information and if this goes commercial.. look out! Even I list better there than on Google whoohoo :)

Something just came to mind after you said you went to yuntis.com..

When Yuntis does become commercial, which domain are they gonna use?

As yuntis.com appears to be registered and according to whois, it doesn't belong to the university, they have several options:

  • Pay some $$$ and buy off yuntis.com from the current registeration holder (which they might do)
  • register yuntis-search.com and use it as a temporary domain until yuntis.com expires (which can take ages)

    Theres no way at all they are going with the long university sub domain to be in commercial land.

    Another thing, the current yuntis.com appears to be a version of ASPseek - and a mirror site of searchspider.com, so don't confused:
    Real Yuntis University Research Project:
    Searchspider.com's mirror site:

    Oh.. I'm definately not confused now with the real Yuntis :)

    That's funny that you mentioned checking whois.. I did the same thing. Guess I was hoping the university owned it as well. Perhaps they can use .net that's not taken. Whatever the case, if they do decide to go commercial with this, I agree that it will definately be an engine to keep your eye on. The information for each listings they have are pretty interesting.

    One thing though.. when it does become widely available if it does.. they'll definately have to work on explaining everything in lamens terms so average Joe Surfer can understand using Yuntis to it's full potential.

    A couple of interesting pages I found:
    - The Yuntis project status: [ecsl.cs.sunysb.edu...]
    - Inserting links in your favorites to use.. works quite well: [yuntis-wrld.ecsl.cs.sunysb.edu...]

    Yes [yuntis.com...]

    is so ASPSEEK.org
