Interesting - that doesn't include sites within country domains. Well, not within .au anyway.

Yikes...UK domains suddenly look a little less clever.

No clustering. I see nine out of ten results from one domain.

Most excellent! (looks like clustering is off?)

Ok, ciml beat me to that.

Yeah some of the listings look a bit buggy and different with some sites missing. Not mine tho ;)

Excellent! Specifically in AOL.co.uk, I have lost 9 straight No.1's from Ink and am nowhere in these Google results.

AOL.co.uk seems to be filtering exclusively from 'Google.co.uk', and as my No.1's were for a UK client with a .com domain, I'm a little peeved.

Any advice welcomed - off for an asprin!

So what are we looking at here - a beta site?

what's the difference between the search on www.aol.com and dirweb01.search.aol.com ?

Heu why results are soo differents from AOL and Google, check:
[dirweb01.search.aol.com...]

[google.com...]

it's not the same listing

If you do the same search with hotels miami, results between AOL and google are the same.
Any explanation ?

Same problem here. However, AOL.co.uk does show google

Appears to be somewhat strange yes,
They should have a <br> between the title and the description, i donīt like reading text that long.

Not only are none of my .co.uk's showing but my .com's that are uk hosted are not there either.

Forget the aspirin, I need a beer or 6.

Its looking pretty buggy..... I had a URL leading to "2000:url=aol:"

Also note that it is not "powered by google" it is "enhanced" ;)

Some of my sites are the same as their Google position :)

and some are not :(

Wow, my sites are missing.

I hope this is not the final product.
Looks close the directory results I get form Yahoo.

AOL.CO.UK went over to Google about a month ago ( or so ).. AOL.COM is presently returning Inktomi and Google....

notice that it says "enhanced by google" not powered by google, are they using there own database of sites? Are they using DMOZ? I think this is the directory search...

These listings are administered, sorted and maintained by Google (AOL's search partner).
[dirweb01.search.aol.com...]

I would guess that they are using Google's ranking, but they're own result set. Still seeing Inktomi on the main search...

All my sites are hosted in Canada.

I have several .ca sites and many .com sites.
All missing. So that means British and Canadian sites are missing. Maybe they are prejudiced against the British Commonwealth.

Yes, a hell of a lot of sites are missing, and it's not just suffix based. Could be host dependent?

First poll and these changes (perhaps not surprisingly) reduce the quality of the serps significantly. It will be interesting to see what they actually put live from this lot.

Yep it looks like they are filtering the sites that are hosted outside the U.S.

I just did some back checks on the missing sites I noticed and they are hosted in Canada.

All .coms

Yes, same here. My US based sites are OK, the rest are out.

The ".uk.com" (sub)domain is being handled differently.

We have one customer who bought one of these before he came to us.

Google UK - with 'uk only' filter sees his site.
Aol - with 'uk only' filter ignores him.

Pah!

I'm with olias this is major league worrying. AOL seem to have taken the view that .com is US only rather than worldwide.

I hope this is not a trend that will continue.

I do not see changes on AOL Usa, but I see a lot of changes on Netscape.

"Featuring results from Google"

Is it a joke? There is nothing similar to Google results.

Well, it's clearly a beta. I don't think it's anything to get jacked up about yet.
