I've been getting lots of spidering activity from Infoseek/Go lately. I haven't seen much activity lately in their index however. Has anybody heard anything about what they're up to? They used to be very reliable and it seems like I'm just getting traffic from their directory.

They can't handle the huge maintenance expense. The search engine has been running so far in the red at Go, that something had to be done before it sunk the whole show.

What they are up to, is building the same type of system as Excite,Ink, and Alta - A Theme Engine. Those require a fraction of the resources that a full indexing se requires.
