1, I see that up to 40/50% of the indexed urls on the SERps i saw , had no associated webpage cache
2, included a site that i had "301'd" since July 2006
3, included a site that returns 404 since July 2006 cos I removed all the webpages
I do hope you guys are right about their improvements, cos the above is not all I noticed,
On a positive note, I ranked very well indeed for my most competitive phrase, alas, there is nothing coming from this, sigh!
This may be rubbish, but I think ASK is spending most of its cash on Marketing, with very little left over for the techie stuff,
Like gadzillions off new servers, extra bandwith, storagebanks, techie people, inshort the "muscle" being deployed by google/yahoo/msn
just my 2p
