"Ms Bohse says metadata tags determine how relevant AltaVista deems a site, along with how often its content is updated"

Thank you Ms Bohse for the tip! [regional only]

Thanks NFFC, good find.

It is good that New Zealand is getting another country specific search engine, however, at the moment it seems to be an exact copy of the main AV engine. I did the same search on both sites and got exactly the same results. And there seems to be no place to choose New Zealand only results.

One assumes this is teething problems only and the engine will become more country specific as time goes on.

The official launch is not until Thursday, it will be interesting to compare the results after then.

I wouldn't expect a rapid response to any enquires though!
