We have the google-dance tool and other tools for Google. What about Altavista? Any tools, tips and tricks?

Seobuddy hi and welcome to ww!

That's a great suggestion- In fact I would like to see a regular representative from every major SE contribute to this forum:

1- From Alta-vista
1- From Yahoo
1- From Inktomi

What do you think Brett and GoogleGuy?
I think it's a great idea

Well, let's start with the basics.

How often does altavista update its database?

Is there any way to know when altavista goes through an update?
