I recently noticed while visiting Alexa's search engine (http://vista.alexa.com) that they actually have a bigger database than googles.
5,275,966,612 compared to google's 4,285,199,774
But what i found really interesting is that alexa is only running on 32 servers, whereas Google is running on thousands. How can that work?
The point is one however: everybody takes results from DMOZ. Google takes from DMOZ, so Alexa takes from DMOZ too. Google's directory is based on DMOZ, such as Alexas and many other engines'.
