Does anyone know anything about Thunderstone?
One of their clients is dogpile, aka subsidiary of infospace. I have no idea why they use the spider technology to power the dogpile directory, my guess is so that they have some original content.
And I dont' have any info on this other than what happened with one of my sites the pages were spidered by thunderstone, and then soon after appeared in the dogpile directory. No other bots hit them that could have accounted for this.
Is there any hard and fast info on this subject, or is this empirical evidence all we have to go on? (is that the right word?)
