On Freeserve my makemetop.com has moved to #1 on the word 'makemetop' but makemetop.com is my least linked and least popular site and is little more than a parked page and the next 10 sites are all 'link2go' sites which I've never heard of. My .co.uk site which is in dmoz, lycos directory etc, etc is WAY down. MSN and Hotbot do not seem to have changed yet from yesterday so do you think they are still working on the DB? I hope so!
things are still going down the pan at inktomi, did you have a contact at freesevre that was looking into inktomi for you ? there's been so much talk about this dam database.I can remember someone saying they had a contact there didn't know if that was you.
Today had an e-mail from BT (the only SE to reply, good old BT)
" Many thanks for your email.
We have raised this with Inktomi Support and they are currently
investigating the issue . We agree that there is currently a problem with
the search cluster and this is what Inktomi is now working to resolve.
Once again, thank you for your feedback and for pointing this out to us.
search Cluster, I think we've had someone else in the forum saying something was a mis with the cluster.
At least it looks like something is happening, at long last
The add URL problem is the same thing which Canada.com have been saying. Could be the search clusters are finding it difficult to cope with Inktomi's experiments as they filter in different ways and serve up different databases depending on usage, terms and relevence - but that's just a guess!
Any news from your Inktomi contact in London? At least BT have given a reasonably meaningful reply!
lets hope the database is starting to come back on line.
Micheal, time to celebrate, better get the vodka and Cointreau out,but there again who needs a reason the weekend's here :)
