I'd heard about this one awhile back and it appears they are up and running:

[gigablast.com...]

Real time spidering on the AddUrl page.

[gigablast.com...]

Feels like: Infoseek
Tastes like: Peppermint (minty fresh ;)
Looks like: squeaky clean.
Relavance like: who cares. it's a new se with instant addurl - done.

Weird...

Looks like they were hacked, and why is the "contact us" link going to a hotmail address?

...meaning to say are you all submitting your home page or each individual URL of a site

They were not hacked. Try searching for "<big>Hello out there!</big>" and you will see the reason. Simple programming will fix the bug.

It matches matts, Whois address [searchengineworld.com].

Looks like he needs to filter the search display on the home page ;)

added a few not-very-important sites to see what happens. no instant spidering but sites added to the queue.
had trouble getting one site added - it just didnt do anything at all. no idea why for that one domain ....

Seems to be having some trouble... very slow. But it said it spidered one of my sites successfully. Not sure what to think... very lethargic though.

Wow. That was fast! Less than one minute after adding my url I suddenly appeared in the search engine results with all pages being spidered.

To brotherhood-of-lan: I think you need to only submit your index earl because everything else from my site showed in the results almost instantly.

It spidered all my links and I am literally watching the number of sites for my keywords grow: first all the sites I linked to then the sites they linked to . . ..

Looks too dirty for my likings... need more sites in it. The majority of sites spidered looks to be porn... I guess its win win...

The last 5 queries thing is interesting and just for fun I searched for:

"Why's it SO pink?"
and
"fah cue"

I was just testing the filter :)

I wonder who searched for "psychidelic wallpaper" :)

I notice that it spots mirror sites and labels them as such.

Haven't seen anything that fast for a loooong time. Instant spidering and, importnatly, instant addition to the db.

I wish them good luck.

It's great, but only took 30 pages on the first site I submitted, then stopped and wouldn't take some other sites I submitted. Maybe it gives you a cookie and limits you to 30 pages. Anyone else get more pages in?

Anyway, it's too good to be true ... instant spidering and instant inclusion of at least some pages.

I actually saw it read "0 full pages indexed" some time ago, then 35,000, the 43,000, and so on. It has been climbing steadily ever since. I suspect this is not the full database, but perhaps pages spidered "today". Even so, it is quite an achievement.

The algo needs some serious tweaking though.

Just discovered some stuff about Gigablasts previous life as a flash game site. There are some links pointing at gigablast.com/blast/shootemup.swf which no longer contains the game but a rather worrying redirect. Perhaps all is not as it seems at Gigablast. Still there is some amusement to be had by having conversations through the last 5 queries feature!

If nothing else, they are collecting a very clear sample of WebmasterWorld Member's SItes. Scary huh! Maybe they should rename to WmWBlast...

100000+ pages in 30 minutes... that was quick. If someone could write a program that "searches" for a particular term over and over every milli-second their site would be up at Gigablast's frontpage! ;)

Reading that "About" page it sounds like sales copy. Looks like either this search engine is for sale or the programing is for sale.

never mind the quality for the moment,
what a blast, what a delight and satisfaction to have an easy, direct and free 'add url' at a search engine with real time full spidering !

You forget what it could be in a perfect SE world, with getting used to waiting one month to be spidered and another to be indexed, or paying $299.- just to have your homepage listed.

That "last 5 queries" thing sucks. It should be removed. It is open to any kind of exploitation (images, redirects etc), and, although kind of fun, makes the front page feel really amateurish.

And also, that redirect thing mentioned in one of the above posts is well dodgy as well...
