motorcycleworld.com relevant to everything?

More proof of problems at AV: Now motorcycleworld.com is pulling up under virtually every search term that I can think of. But unlike the porn site that previously accomplished this, not all the listings are from the same page.

some current listings

chocolate - pg1 #5
cat - pg1 #7
leather repair - pg1 #2
fubar - pg2 #13
christmas - pg1 #7
pokemon - pg3 #26
stuff - pg1 #3, #7, #9

(even pulling up when I do searches for my sites by their domain names)

There is also another one in this mix, a page referencing the actress Pam Grier. motorcycleworld is #1 for apples and pumpkins, number 2 for coffee and surprisingly only 10 for toenails. Pam Grier comes up in the teens. Since it is the same page each time for PGrier, doubtful that m-world.com is the culprit I would surmise.

I didn't see those results. But one of my searches, "cat", returned duplicate banner ads and no results!

Yes, AV is spazzing out right now.

This is precisely why I had to take a break from monitoring these thingz so closely. Just re-joined and already I'm reaching for the aspirin.

Where do we sign up to become a "relevant to everything" page? I have a site I get paid on commission for the traffic and would like to become part of Alta Vista's Totally Irrelevant Partnership Program. :)

Right here [looksmart.com].

Two ways of looking at this;

1. It's a fix
2. AV's link pop algo has not made an allowance for "special cases" such as this

Great find

Take the link
[r.lksm.com...]
and change the www.motorcycleworld.com/wallpaper/default.cfm to www.MYSITE.com and it will send you right to it..

Looks like [lksm.com...] is a different DB than [looksmart.com...]

I submited a site on 1-31-00 via excite and it's listed on [looksmart.com...] but not on [lksm.com...]
