Teoma Update!
I am seeing an update at Teoma :)

 2:25 pm on Jun 8, 2003 (gmt 0)

Altavista earlier today and now Teoma :)

Anyone like to confirm

Altavista thread below


Just noticed Caines thread re Teoma :-


But I am seeing new pages from recent crawl not just changes in positions (these pages were not there yesterday)

My site wasn't in their algo before but now it's showing up on the 3rd spot for my best key phrase.

Note: I didn't pay to submit either.

I did not pay either :) - good stuff

Looks like there are quite a few pages that weren't there yesterday. On another thread yesterday I posted the results for several search engines for Sammy Sosa Corked Bat - so here they are for comparison...

Sammy Sosa Corked Bat Results:

Google: 7550
AllTheWeb: 47
MSN: 68
Teoma: 7
AltaVista: 47

Google: 7660
AllTheWeb: 47
MSN: 69
Teoma: 202
AltaVista: 883

Looks like both have plenty of new pages - and I doubt that people were paying to get pages on sammy sosa in. So more free traffic for webmasters :)

try using the same keyword in teoma and in ask.com
You'll know the results are ranked differently.

why are there differences? jeeves is up to something for sure. I'm wondering what they are planning.

1)teoma is said to be over a billion by summer.
2)jeeves selling JS to focus on web.
3)100 million convertible bond.

hey! the more the merrier...afterall, teoma is a nice technology. I believe as their index grows, so will be the usefulness of thier technology. I support teoma.

This is interesting - we didn't pay to submit either (or even submit for that matter) but we're in at #3 on AJ.

Where do they get their data? We must be in a directory somewhere that AJ reads from?

AJ/Teoma spider the web.

>>We must be in a directory somewhere that AJ reads from?

I see a number of familiar DMOZ descriptions.

> I see a number of familiar DMOZ descriptions.

I note it too, but it seems in a random way; there are sites placed in the same DMOZ directories that do not show the DMOZ description but the meta description.

I am noticing a lot of changes/flux over the past two weeks.

Once the changes started one of my clients watches the top 10 every day. Looking at their reports today there have been a different top 10 SERPS every day since last Tues.

Not just the normal one or two swapping positions but one not even in the top 30 becoming #1 then gone the next day. Thursday's #4 was Friday's #1 with no changes done to the site. Today that site have moved down to #8 and another remix of top 10.

Any ideas what is going on over there?
