Is there some on-site way to report sites that really should not be there?
Results are good, but there is the occasional absconded URL and the like. -Larry

Im sorry to spoil the party, but your super-clean-spam-free search engine has indexed many of my domain names parked in Sedo :(

How was that?

Has anybody said it was spam-free? Actually a few posts up the thread I stated exactly the contrary!

On January 24 I wrote:

Good news - the results got better:

#1 eBay/AdSense "portal" (probably the one from Jan07 - I'm not sure)
#2 Slightly related news site
#3 Related site, offering a service related to the search term
#4 On-topic enduser site
#5 my site
#6 my site
#7 spammy SEO site
#8 On-topic enduser PDF file

Unfortunately, results have suffered (at least from my point of view):

#1 eBay/AdSense "portal"
#2 Slightly off-topic forum
#3 Another page from slightly off-topic forum
#4 One of my microsites, slightly off-topic
#5 On-topic enduser site
#6 On-topic enduser site
#7 Slightly related news site
#8 my site - which is #1 for that keyword on Google and MSN and among the top-5 in Yahoo
