On Mirago there used to be the search box that allowed you to carry out web search. They showed crawled pages, along with their own in house PPC, today when I carried out a search the box simply says "search paid listings" and returns no results on any term.

Whats happeneing with Mirago.

Mirago are concentrating more effort on selling services to companies who need a PPC system. If you are a big media company and don't want the technical/legal hassle of building a PPC system, they will step in and do it for you. Not a huge market - but big enough when you consider many media companies will want to differentiate themselves from Google etc...

This will probably become a bigger part of their business as sites that do not want to become part of a network find they do need to introduce performance based advertising options for their advertisers.

Just downloaded some of their php code to test results. ran it on localhost and they do still provide results. seams strange they no longer choose to offer this from their own website.

Added I see Mirago have just changed their website. No longer so much as a search box on there. Pretty sad day. Dont think the UK has a true public facing crawler anymore.
