hey guys,

I was into SEO but bcoz of a change of job i have been away from the Latest happenings in SEO.
Need to Know Who's Who in the current Situation ...

I mean which are the Top Search Engines Today and how they work or how they show results...

To My Knowledge :

Google is Still the King (Any recent Algo changes after the Austin Update)

Yahoo has the whole stock of search engines
for eg...

Yahoo got overture who in turn has altavista and all the web.
Yahoo got Inktomi..

Yahoo shifted its web results from google to inktomi...

is there anything i am missing about yahoo here and how does yahoo presents its results ...PLEASE LET ME KNOW

Then comes MSN ....

Last time i heard was MSN was going to drop looksmart ..... (wht happen here)

Does MSN shows the results the same way it used to before
for eg:

Featured listing
Sponspered Links from Overture
Looksmart Directory Listings
Web Results from Inktomi ........

Any other search engines in the news apart from the above three ....

What's IN what's OUT in general SEO Business.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW BUDDY's

thanks

Google, Yahoo, MSN. That's really it unless you are at the top and are trying to squeeze in that last 5%.

Google is the most elusive, yahoo and MSN are both variations on Inktomi, and rank for similar methods as Google. Google has their own paid placement - adwords, and MSN and Yahoo are using Overture, and pay-for-inclusion.

Content and incoming Links are king, but SEO today is a game of filter dodge-ball.

hey thanks grandpa that link does help ...

Are there any recent changes in Google's Algo .. after the Austin Update ...how often does update take place now and is there anything like google dance now ..

Some more queries please?

1) earlier yahoo use to show google's web results .. now i guess it showing inktomi's results or it is using its own technology mixing the best of inktomi, all the web and altavista .. bcoz for altavista and all the web the search results are served by yahoo as per the link u had put up ... please elaborate me on this yahoo family.

2) about MSN
i guess MSN shows its results as follows :
Featured listing frm MSN itself
Sponsered listing from Overture
then comes INKTOMI for primary web results (as they have dropped looksmart)

well plz let me know about the above two points ..
i just want to have a clear understandings of these 3 big guys google, yahoo and msn..

thanks again guys
