I have a similar self-centered view in how i rank Teoma (and other SEs), but i also give credit to how Teoma and others rank my competitors:
As in this example:
I have a high ranking on Google and All the Web (Fast) and WiseNut (within the top 3), and GigaBlast.
My major competitors: X, Y and Z and W rank -- within a reasonable range, high on Google and "All the Web" and WiseNut (at least 3 of the 4 are right above or just below me).
On Teoma I don't rank in the top 3. One of my competitors is there in the top 3, but I and the others are not, though we are not -- any of us much behind the top 3.
So - if I and most of my competitors who rank on all the other true SEs rank high, but not on Teoma ... what does that say?
Could say Teoma has something really special going; but more likely, Teoma doesn't know what it is doing.
I'm self centered. I choose "Teoma doesn't know what it is doing." BUT I also say that based on examination of the sites Teoma does rank high for my business/keywords. The top 2-3 sites on Teoma results for most keywords related to my business are pitiful. Just not there. And, yes I know, I am prejudiced.
But really, they have not got it yet. But not too far off, but far enough ... they don't count, yet.
