Welcome to Webmasterworld in 2001.
>>Does anyone know of any good spider software other than Inktomi's that is out there.
Were you looking for some software to spider various internet sites for you or were looking for a spider which crawls your own site every 24 hours like Inktomi's pay for listing? Once we kow what ou have in mind, I'm srue you will get plenty of help to find what you are looking for.
If you are interested in having a *small* search engine, for a type of speciality site check out FDSE [xav.com]. It is a high quality script.
These all are spider based...googlebot works for google, excite.com has architext, and scrubtheweb.com has scrubby, although I've never seen it. Enjoy! :)
PS. Littleman, you mean altavista.com, or av.com, has a spider? Never seen it. ;)
