Looks like the meta is in place. Mostly overture although not all paid results. An occassional findwhat and looksmart result. Didn't see any others in the 1 search I tried.

I got mostly inktomi, altavista, and about in my search. Still get better results using google.

1st try, mostly overture, 2nd try overture and some L$ perhaps Ink(redirected L$), third time, it's a toss up, a little bit of everything?

I see ink, overture, directhit, findwhat, ... but AV results for my kws.
there was a popup with the Cost to advertiser, or was it an illusion, it happened only once?

How on Earth do they expect to resurrect Excite? Unless they can provide something that is better than the alternatives I really can't see people flocking back there.
Surely Excite must have been reduced to nothing? There can't still be people using it after months of total PPC listings? I know that people are creatures of habit, but Excite was all but dead.
Can they rebuild the Excite empire using a meta search engine and some fancy PR work? I doubt it.

The name alone may be anough to draw traffic... been there for ages and well known to the average internet joe

Well the meta-search is a bit better than pure PPC. I can't see it being a big player without it's own DB.
