Anybody else get a test search enquiry from AV before?

I could be wrong, but it my case it seems they are testing the use of AI to perform searches.

Here is an example [search.test.altavista.com].

Actually when I go back and compare searches I see no real difference so it's probably nothing.

This does seem to be some kind of testing area for AV. The goto listing were on this site almost a month before they showed up on the main AV. In the past we've also noticed some differences in the databases.....
