But I really like gigabits!
I designed a logo for gigablast nearly 3 years ago, they ran a competition here - they choose a different one - but I have been following ever since :) (The logo they choose works better in the space)
650,000,000 - Go Gigablast!
the spirit of instant indexing...
One good thing about Gigablast is that it's not yet popular enough to be a front line spamm target.
It will be interesting to see how they deal with this issue as they grow.
Yeah... these two things, among others, may well collide when they do get popular. Some years back, when they were hot, Inktomi's submissions were running 99% spam. For a while, they gave you negative points if you submitted. AltaVista had to resort to ransom note submissions.
I'm seeing that the Gigablast algo has a link relevancy component, but its threshold doesn't seem to be very high. Hard to tell without more pages in the index. Right now, its results in areas I've checked look like a cross between Google and Yahoo, maybe trying to have the best of both worlds... but that's pre major engine status. With Florida, Google had to start getting irrelevant to combat spammers.
