Tried using it an hour ago and had a problem.... tried again 5 minutes ago and it seemed to work just fine.
Oh... and a heads up to those wondering if their sites are ever going to be indexed. 10-12 pages submitted in mid Jan appeared in AV today. Index only, no deep crawling.
<confirms that AV are pretty canny about whether a site should be in UK or .com, and they got it spot on>
Trust I'm not too far off topic. We've recently submitted a UK site with a .com address via AVUK and then straight onto the normal AV addurl page. As content was "interim design" with minimal reference to fact that it was a UK site, we were very surprised to see it do so well on AVUK. It's since been buried and is now back in AVUK (also in AV.com). The conclusion out of this about a week back was that it appeared that AV (UK) wasn't as canny as we'd expected.
Perhaps things are changing. Certainly happier that AVUK relevancy has improved. But no deep crawl yet on either.
This is about as hairbrained an idea as I've seen in years. The whizzos playing with the algorithm at AV have been promoted to the submission dept. God help us all!
Won't be long now before they bury this has-been of a search engine.
