What is their spider called?
Vivisimo doesn't have a spider, it's a meta engine with a unique way of aggregating & presenting the information. :)
So, if you are in any of the majors, you'll get into Vivisimo.
Check out Vivisimo Search Engine [vivisimo.com] for more.
Yes, it's a meta althoug they call themselves different.
But I'm curious if you're seeing referrals?
I've seen a couple -> nothing to get excited over, though. I'm not convinced, no matter how 'cool' a meta can ever seriously get to a 'contender' anymore...because usually, there are so many paid listings, etc.
I'd like to be proved wrong, though. :)
I have one US site that's currently doing 2000-2500 uniques per day. I average about one referral per day from Viv.
that's not too many :)
According to Alexa, Vivisimo has a daily reach of 280 per million users... so, only 1 out of very 3,571 users uses Vivisimo. Compare that with Google, where 1 out of every 10 users visit...
Some comparisons. 1 our every X users uses these SEs:
|daily reach of 280 per million users |
That can't be right at all. Google gets (according to their pages, anyway) 150 million queries / day.
So, if 1/2 the people at Vivisimo search -> and that 280 million figure is correct -> Vivisimo should be driving referrals on par with Google.
Hmmm...something is not right with that Alexa number. :)
I didn't say "280 Million". I said 280 per Million.
So, out of a daily group of a million users, 280 will visit Vivisimo.
Out of a daily group of a million users, 100,000 will visit Google.
|Is anyone actually getting hits from Vivismo? |
I've got a bunch of these:
Yet, when you open that in a browser (IE5.5) the page is blank and 'with errors'.
I'm curious what this is all about.
My bad, duncan12...didn't read your post properly!
So, out of 1,000,000 web users -> 280 will check out vivisimo.
Okay, that makes sense. I know have a much more realistic expectation as to what I should expect from them....hm, but that interface *is* pretty cool.
As for that js snippet there, pendanticist, I have no idea -> perhaps RCJ, since he seems to get 'traffic' has seen it before?
I see that same snippet in my tracker when I get occasional Vivisimo hits.
I just got a visitor from Vivisimo. Apart from the pages visited, I have no other information on the user's search. From a SEO perspective, Vivisimo is worthless.
These days, it seems like so many sites are log file spamming that I believe any engine should at least have the keyword in the referrer otherwise, how do we know it's *not* just some more log file spam?
Not saying they are - just throwing it out there.
I'm getting some from Vivisimo. I havn't been keeping track, but I do think I've seen more in the last few months. Still nothing compared to the majors though.
The snippets thing is because their search results are displayed on a framed page.
