Tiscali Want to know who powers results jinks msg:497117 9:44 am on Apr 22, 2004 (gmt 0) Hi,
Can you help me with search engines that power Tiscali? It used to be Fast for many regional Tiscali's, but now it it's not clear. Tiscali UK shows Overture's results as sponsored but then they are followed by web results that don't seem to be provided by Inktomi. I would like to update info but...

I'm pretty sure the backfill comes from Yahoo Search, but let's see if some of our resident UK folks can shed some light on it :) DaveN msg:497119 11:50 am on Apr 22, 2004 (gmt 0)
it's pure inktomi backfill with UK geo targeting turned on!
so seeming how Y! own them Rumbas is right ;)

I knew that Dave would sit behind his PC watching over us - he has nothing else to do and has no friends anyway ;)
Thanks for the clarification Dave!

Thank you, DaveN and Rumbas. I suspected this, but the results do not match 100%, and besides tiscali.at is still showing FAST, this made me puzzled.
