I always figured search engines blocked each other (most of the time) to keep their own data from being stolen and to save on unneeded requests, but WiseNut seems to be allowed to go anywhere.
Try a search at [wisenut.com...] and preceed your favorite popular term with 'Results ' (without quotes)
such as: Results target marketing [wisenut.com]
you will see...
some SERP's listed are not even searches on exact terms, such as 'Results keyword marketing' lists a search on Dogpile for 'keyword relevance'
I remember reading a post by some person who wanted to submit serps for link pop, well here is your chance. Let us know how it works...ha ha
Hey WiseNut, if your going to crawl them, maybe you could at least filter them out of your results. It seems to be redundent, poor marketing for your own company, and a little tacky to see them(in my opinion). I like your engine, this is just an fyi...
Does the question of whether WiseNut actually crawled over a billion pages or just grab others data come to mind?? Ya, me too. But what would be the point? There is no use in a ton of urls with no supporting data (the page content) to help rank them by. They could of course rank them by the typical meta-search method by comparing all other engines ranking of a page, but I don't think all those PHDs combined would come up with that one... though I could be wrong. ;)
Hows that for the most useless thread for the day... It was just a little disturbing to see so many of them.
