There was a big event I was waiting for, and the major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Live) managed to provide links to reviews of this event within 24 hours, some of them indexed within an hour of publication.
It's now been many days since the event and Cuil provides no links at all to any post-event reports, just articles that previewed it months ago.
Is it possible that Cuil does indeed have a bigger index than others, but doesn't have the ability to update it easily?

In the locked thread I posted early stats for a busy site (percentage of visitors delivered):
28th July: 0.145%
29th July: 0.244%
30th July: 0.122%
31st July: 0.075%
Looking at the last 7 days, the average is now down to 0.019% - that's just one visitor from Cuil for every 5262 visitors from other search engines!
I just love the layout, and the way they *cough* creatively use pictures they *cough* find on the web to illustrate the search results. Thank God, they did not change their product to comply with those few critics who claimed that this use of images was violating copyrights!
P.S.: The drop in usage is probably due to an inaccuracy from your log file analyzer. And those web-based stats, well, we all know that Alexa never gets anything right. Probably they have bypassed Yahoo! and Microsoft in traffic by now.
