Besides the very recent design changes on Looksmart.com it has come to my attention that their search engine Wisenut is now displaying results under the banner of, "Results from the Web".

About Results from the Web

Results from the Web are listings provided by LookSmart's world-class, proprietary search technology, WiseNut. This section of results contains Web sites that have been crawled and indexed by the WiseNut search engine and may also contain some sites that have been evaluated by LookSmart editors. These results may include some paid listings. Listings in this section are ranked solely based on relevance as determined by WiseNut's search algorithm.

Seems that they have dumped Inktomi as backfill.

Yes, it sure looks like it. Unfortunately, some of that WiseNut data is 3 or 4 months old. :(

Well spotted. I suppose it was inevitable really - why pay for results when you have your own search engine.

Now, does this mean that those L$ listings in INK will go? Or is that too much to hope for!

Nice find, thanks for posting! Perhaps now we'll start to see more than the occassional click from WiseNut ;)

Actually, LS listings are still being distributed by Inktomi, as described in the press release:

But what disappear in in the web search of LS are results from Wisenut.
