I have noticed recently that the Pure search listings and the Hotbot listings are not similar anymore. It appears to me, Hotbot is applying some filters based on TLD's and the hosting locations.

Has anyone else observed anything similar?

Many Thanks,

YES, about five days ago, I'm suddenly out of Inktomi HotBot listings (well, HUGELY demoted about 50 positions with no change in my content); still where I was in PureSearch.
