How depressing. The web's best advanced search page is now gone. The word filter section no only offers title or text. All of the link related options have been removed.

Not here. It sure isn't the ATW stuff that was there this morning, and it isn't pure Y! either.

Yuk. Time for me to go and find a new search engine to use. Which reminds me, I must take the AllTheWeb search box off my home page as I don't really feel like recommending it anymore.

Yahoo search is OK I s'pose (even if they have - temporarily I hope - lost my homepage), but ATW was the only SE I could get consistantly good results from when I was actually trying to find anything (nothing to do with finding my own sites).

I'm still seeing unique results on ATW - not the same as Yahoo. From the Pacific NW.

I'm in Australia, and although my version of ATW states that its results come from Yahoo!, they don't! (or at least not my version of Yahoo!)

I couldn't see the change in Canada. However, when I used a ip cloaker I could see the change. I check AltaVista but there hasn't been a change there yet. Interesting hoping this will improve my traffic. Yahoo by itself didn't bring in much even though I am top ranked for big terms.

How have the mighty fallen.

After an article on C4 news this evening about a producer called DJ Dangermouse who has mixed together The Beatles White Album with JayZee's Black Album to create The Grey Album... I ran a search on Google for "the gray album".

Then, out of curiosity, I ran the same search on alltheweb to see what different sites it might throw up. I imagined I might get some more interesting alternative resources and / or weblog entries.

How wrong I was.

Most of Google's front page has relevant listings for Dangermouse's Grey Album.

Most of alltheweb's front page has listings for David Gray and Macy Gray. (There is one relevant entry).

I'm kinda saddened to see AllTheWeb go; the competition was good for both FAST and Google, and they ran a solid search engine. I met one or two of their software engineers once and enjoyed talking to them.

These results are about 2-3 weeks old just as Yahoo serps are. Just like Yahoo, I only get a fresh listing under a direct title search. I switched my title about 2 days ago. Google picked up the title change the next day with freshbot and then the new title showed 24 hours later on Yahoo, but the new title still is not showing in any of the serps. I would anticipate that this old data will be replaced soon.

From QLD, Aust.
Similar results but not exactly the same.

I knew it was about to happen but still very sad to see.... why replace a perfectly good search engine, surely AV would've been the better candidate to do testing on. ATW had been my Google alternative.

What will Opera do now that ATW has changed?

Also noticed ATW logo link now sending data back to Yahoo.com

Now I'm get ripped off on by two PFI programs. Inktomi and Fast. I guess once Yahoo adds AV and Lycos to the list it has pretty well destroyed the Internet with Inktomi spam. They ruined it for everybody with their greed and sorry search technology.

That's the most depressing thing for me. It was so useful. Bummer.

This is a sad day, in my view. They seem to think Ink is the only SE that matters. I guess time will tell, but I do think they are making a mistake.

OK I see it from IP locations all over the US.

Anyone know the approximate percentage split of their traffic from US, Eurpoe, Asia, all other? I assume they have a far greater split of traffic from the UK and Europe?

Might as well start putting this to use. Crying doesn't help anyone. :-)

A backlinks check on marketleap and ATW shows "0".

A moment of silence, please.

Anyone want to say a eulogy?

These are my sentiments exactly. Allthe web had some wonderful advanced features not found on Google or Yahoo or MSN.

I continue to feel the Yahoo is all about efficiency, even if it upsets people. Having been involved in their webhosting program, I can tell you their drive toward efficiency has completely driven me away.

I can tell you that I now have yet another reason NOT TO VISIT sites owned by Yahoo. Too bad, but I've got better things to do than waste time with Yahoo (who I predict is headed toward becoming the next Altavista).

DvDuval,

My sentiments exactly that Y is heading down the same road that Altavista did.

While I was concerned when my main site wasnt showing up in the results as I have had it for 7 years and I could easily have done something wrong during this time to upset a new algo.....

A 2nd site that I do joint marketing with just got penalized in the Yahoo results. This makes me laugh as the site is clean. Yahoo is pathetic.

They are eliminating high quality sites from their index either based on an algo that is too high strung or a greedy bunch of executives that have given the command to get rid of sites so that webmasters will start paying more to advertise.

Well Im cancelling $600 a month for featured directory listings and will not spend a dime in paid advertising on any Yahoo site. While I really think Overture is great, at least before Site Match, Googles paid advertising works fine and they give me plenty of organic traffic.

It's about unanimous with EVEN GoogleGuy in agreement.

But in YahooSoft's eyes, this was one more necessary step to increase their market share and Spin Doctor themselves into being the biggest search engine on the block.

I wonder if former ATW searchers will migrate to Teoma.
