I never really know where to post this kinda stuff. Hope this is the correct spot.

Anywho, IxQuick just added
Teoma
WiseNut

to their searchable engine list. Good tool, but I think the Overture spots are screwing up some of their SERPS. I'm superised google has not been added yet. That would be sweet.

Spinner.

These are good additions. ixQuick was getting too reliant on PPC engines last time I looked. This will add some interest to the results.

Google, as far as I know, costs a fair bit of money to integrate. (last meta somebody reported, they had to stop using google, cause far as I know, they weren't paying).

Ixquick, given that they just integrated two players who 1) is already doing pay for inclusion, and 2) was just bought by a directory that is no longer a directory,

I'm ambivilent as to this will make me actually use Ixquick. Though I will say, for those fond of meta search, this makes the tool far more valuable in my eyes.

It used to be a very good resource. Losing Google and adding mainly paid for Search Engines is making the results now close on useless. Adding teoma and wisenut is a good move, but the results still seem fairly useless.

Good points. I took a look at IxQuick about a week or two ago and was shocked by all the PPC engines.

But if you think about it, it's not easy coming up with 7 - 8 *decent* search engines or directories these days for a meta-search engine.

Do we now if any SE or Portal is using their info?

For what they offer, it's quite nice (well once), but they can't seem to get that edge.

I don't believe anyone I know use them on a regular basis. What's their market?

Spinner..

PS: Jeremy, are you sure IX pays to use these SE's info or are they somehow filtering based on real-time searching?

Just curious.

Google doesn't allow anybody to use their stuff without $$$$

As for Wisenut/Teoma, they might be able to get it for free? not sure though.
