I just came back from being on the road for a week and ran my usual positioning reports. Saw some major shifts, all for the good for me. On my two major keywords:

AltaVista: Minor bump up (15 to 13, 14 to 12)
Fast: Major bump up (24 to 5, 13 to 4)
Hotbot: Major bump (1 to 2, 6 to 1) Other keywords also majorly up.
AOL: No change
Excite: Virtually no change
GoTo: minor movement up
IWon: No major change, except picked up new keyword
LookSmart: Major shift down (6 to 11, 7 to 11)
Lycos: Dramatic shift up (26 to 1, 16 to 12) other keywords also up
MSN: Mixed (9 to 10, 10 to 3) other keywords mixed, one new keyword
NBCi: No major changes
NetScape: No changes, picked up one new keyword
ODP: No changes
Yahoo: No major changes
Yahoogle: No major changes

To summarize: I saw major shifts at Fast, Hotbot, Looksmart, and Lycos between April 18th and 28th. It also seems that Inktomi engines picked up a new keyword.
