This is just my guess - don't take it to the bank
There was talk awhile ago when all this Inktomi nonsense started about D-Day being June 27th (my birthday, co-incidently, but I certainly didn't make a wish for this! ;) ).
Well today under "wedding accessories" there are plenty of pages listed in the top 30 (I discounted the top 10 Direct Hit results) with dates in early August, 2000.
I don't know what to make of this, since there appear to be no common demominator between these top site. (other that the fact that thet're not mine!!)
This may be off topic a tad, but hey, it's all part of the Inktomi stew.
Any thoughts out there?
But like everything with Inktomi now - I could be wrong!
There is a program called "Touch" that you can alter the file date modified attribute. There is a direct Linux/Unix function to do this directly on the server. The "Touch" program is NT/Windows based.
Many used this trick early last year, when AV was giving "big" relevancy boost to older URL's in their index. Can't get much older than 1/1/70, can you? :)
I think someone caught on to it at AV early in 99', and filtered it, because I quit seeing relevancy boost for the 1/1/70 URL's in their index.
