About Gigablast...

Very good speed and index, but too much spam. Moreover, snippets sometimes are trivial....but I think that Gigablast is an excellent work.

Compliments Matt!

I'm amazed. What's he have, maybe one percent of the hardware Google uses? - Larry

I just had my first visit to Gigablast, amaizing! In my keywords there are actually some of my competators listed, and very little spam.

Maybe it's the search terms you tried.

(As a side note, a part of me doesn't want this to go main stream because in Google and Yahoo, I'm the only non-spam natural result and all of my competators are paying BIG$$ for PPC. The other part of me says, "It's about time I did a search and was actually able to find something.")

Nah, I like it. Very Similar Yahoo, msn, google algo. Msn beta sucks compared to this search engine.

I'm confused about this. I'm really curious to know how much Matt has grown. It's awesome that gigablast is taking off.

If you read his rant about data corruption where he discusses having a gigablast cluster in Sweden [gigablast.com]. That makes at least 16 computers... :)

In his spellchecker post, he anticipates a hardware increase by Nov 2004 [gigablast.com] to reach 5 billion documents.

Then his recent press release [prnewswire.com] (originally posted here [webmasterworld.com] by Brett) says "multiple dedicated clusters" so that says to me at least 3 clusters of 8 PCs each?

So I guess it must be at least 24 computers not the original 8. I wonder if Matt runs around here at WW and could gloat a bit so we can be more accurate when telling people about his search engine? :)
