Teoma Updating
Changed SERPs appearing

Just noticed radically altered SERP for my targetted keywords.
Teoma (and AJ) bringing up second and third level pages high in ranking (#2 & #7) for me.
Homepage not listed BUT that darned, now very dead, non-existent homepage of mine back in at #9!
Also, I reckon some spammy pages have got in under the fence.
What do others see?
Similar things happened last time there was an update and Teoma resolved the issues. Will watch again with interest.

If Teoma has updated, they really are doing a bad job. They still list my site at a URL it hasn't been at since Feb. 28, and haven't found the new URL. The fact that they haven't removed listings of sites that have been dead for almost 3 months suggests they do little crawling.

I don't believe it... we finally get great listings in Teoma.... precisely at the moment that our usually rock-solid reliable hosting service goes on the fritz!!!

After carrying out a number of searches on different subjects, I would agree with some of the other comments that the weighting on page titles is fairly heavy this time around - but before we go out and start using 500 characters in our title tags, I'm sure this is something that they will jump on next time around....

I would hardly call this an update. Teoma still shows pages that I removed 2 months ago, and none of the new or changed pages that I uploaded on March 22nd.

Google got huge by great word of mouth. With out-of-date results like these, what will compel new users to use Teoma and tell their friends?

Well, the assumption seems to be that Ask Jeeves is going to do some actual Teoma marketing (unlike what they did with DirectHit). I certainly hope they don't pursue the Google model for getting the word out. I doubt very much such a tactic would be successful at this point.
