Up till before Yahoo/Inktomi wedding Inktomi was feeding to MSN and there were moderate traffic to sites from MSN due to Inktomi submission with Positiontech or other reseller. Now what is the best solution to get those traffic from Ink?

Is it a correct combo of engines as below?
1) Yahoo, Altavista, Alltheweb and Overture one group.
Pay $49 to Overture site match and than per click charges as per site category.

That means loss of Yahoo as previously it was getting results from google, Loss of Overture, as Ink was feeding secondary results to it.

2)Ask site submit $30. That means inclusion in following engines. How much of them are really useful?
Metacrawler Excite
MyWay.com ixquick

3)Where are Lycos, MSN etc?

Update of Inktomi/Yahoo is killing organic and small SEO?

This thing may be wrong, can somebody input more?
Its really pain for small search engine marketer.

Any input will be helpful and appriciated.

May be it is too early!
What is a traffic share amongst major search engines?

Is there any latest search engine relationship chart for who is feeding whom?

Is highest biding at overture and to acquire top positions at yahoo, Altavista etc is dead now?

Is there any change in Looksmart and MSN for PPC?

I think I am panic............
