I hope you've noticed that NL db appears to be growing. I just got back 236,547,560 records in its db!

How many and which other SEs are actually growing their db?

Noticed significant growth in a short time. 200million was normal for a long time. Looks like it's a major build-up. Get your sites added while you have the chance.
Current figure 279,977,394

They can grow their database but my market
has never heard of Northern Light.

Well, they did all that tv advertising this winter and early spring. I think that has a little effect. They need to nuke the domain name and find something cute and fuzzy.

We've just coined the phrase Northern Blight!

I still think this is a shame because it's not a bad source of information. It spiders the web (my part anyway) more than others.

How about triffic(sm) or altgooya(sm) or yagoo(sm) or mr magoo, no, that's not right.
