The one that drives my clients the most traffic. That way they stay happy and I get paid lots of money!
Seriously though, for personal use ATW.
GoogleGuy would move to Pasadena and become OvertureDude ;)
ATW but increasingly Teoma.
Teoma, ATW, but one or two NEW metasearch engines are delivering incredibly relevant results.
IId keep an eye on AV as well.
They are improving every day on our referral logs.. and any search engine smart enough to recognize the importance of our site, must be pretty intelligent..! :)
ATW. I like Inktomi too.
I have to agree with makemetop:
|The one that drives my clients the most traffic. |
For me, in conjunction with Google, that's been MSN/Inktomi. Without Google, even though it would mean a reduction because of how the keywords have to be chosen, that's who I'd concentrate on. Even with Google, that's a winner for traffic on certain type of keywords.
For personal use it would be ATW, whose interface far surpasses any of the others. They're the only ones who come close to Google's excellence in simplicity, ease of use and page loading time.
Has to be Teoma - I think their results will be better than Google by the end of this year.
Ian, for webmastering Teoma is a very good research tool. But as of now, there are too many sites not in there; their database is too limited. Other than that, they're third runner-up for me, behind Google and alltheweb.
Teoma is not Jeeves, though. It definitely would_not be Jeeves.
I really like Vivisimo for results. They'll keep getting better and better IMHO. Apart from that, Fast.
I would probably stick to meta-search engines like dogpile.
doesn't dogpile deliver a heap of PPC?
(Added) yep, just checked.. overture is first 10 results, and findwhat also is there. Fast is there but sandwhiched in between.
How could you find dogpile useful for searching?
As an Eglishman (and proud of it) the BBC search the web is steadily improving all the time.
Still couldnt live with out Google :)
Life without Google.
To quote a line from Sienfeld "you call that living"
ATW would be my choice followed by Teoma.
Definately not Dogpile or any of the meta-engines.
"As an Eglishman (and proud of it) the BBC search the web is steadily improving all the time.

The bbc.co.uk search engine is Google. :)
Life without Google?!?! What?!?! Are you serious??!?!
I would cease to be. I would fall into myself and create a giant black hole.
What would we talk about?
