I've got sites that rank in the top 5 on Google, ATW and Inktomi powered searches - can't find them an AV.
It seems that unless AV sorts out it's algos it's not going to be around much longer.
I stopped being online and using SE's for much of my college/late high school life - and now I come out and has a job doing this sh!t, to see Google completely dominate and altavista not getting a sniff. Crazy.
Altavista needs to do *something* to get people to want to use them. Otherwise, they probably are doomed.

But AV has some good technologies - there is always babelfish... which I would buy if anyone were to sell it to me. (I have a few farthings around here somewhere).
>>linking to their other search properties at the bottom of pages for people to search at in addition?
I do not think 98% of searchers ever use those, but they sure are handy when you strike out. And on a property as heavily searched as Y! the remaining 2% is pretty significant.
