Real time spidering on the AddUrl page.
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.
If they refine the results a bit I am sure it won't take long for people to find it.
Hopefully they will keep a clean design. That is why I use google there arnt that many quick and clean engines around.
I wonder where this engine will be going and how long the free submit will last? I imagine they have a cut-off figure which they haven't reached yet.
I agree with the rest of you ... its just a pleasure to get instant gratification. Hmmm, think I need some ice cream ... its getting steamy here!
Are you all adding just your main page and if so is the little guy spidering your whole site just now or just adding the pages you submitted?
Brett: you sure do know how to light a fire. ;)
<note>I am now getting redirected to search.searchboss.com for nearly every link I click on and all of the mirrors (cache) are coming up not found. Was this a test to see just how excited someone could get us by offering instant addition? ;) Or did we kill this thing already?</note>
I wish them luck, but they need to make the page look more professional at the moment it looks very bad.

Of course I don't know who i was chatting with (through the last five queries) but that was when there were about 15 000 pages indexed.
It has a very googley (if that's a word) feel to it, he/she has obviously based it on google with the cache feature.
It could be a winner with the realtime FREE spidering/indexing.

We really need to start a search engine adoption agency to let surfers know about these other search engines. Pick an alternative engine and put their button on your index page. Something like that. Otherwise nobody will ever hear of them.
yep I can see that... only thing is most of the url's I'm submitting haven't been hit yet since 8:30 am. I know that sounds ridiculously picky, but I was trying to see how fast it would pick them up. Only one out of 10 got picked up.
work out tapes
and someone else would search for:
"work out" + tapes
or some such variation. Before that happened I was blatantly re-searching for my URL over and over just to see if I could grab a few visits. I guess I did that about 5-10 times until I thought to myself --- "Gee I'd hate to get banned from this SE already!"
IT defenitely needs some cosmetic surgery. Is their anyway to find someone at gigablasts email or contact info? I think they should read this thread...

That's very funny. I did a search on ClientName to see if they were listed, and the top two listings returned actually were mirrors they hadn't told me about.

thanks for your msg on gigablast.
this is matt wells.
i'd just like to note a few things for you to post on the msg board:
1) as most know this is pre-beta
2) no i do not plan on "selling out". i'm not accepting any venture capital, but i may take out loans. i have a passion for information retrieval and there's a lot of projects i want to do once i have a large corpus of documents.
3) i plan on having a decent beta in a couple of months
4) the current hardware i have should hold somewhere between 200-250 million web page at about 80 queries per second.
5) i'm running off a T1 now (a major bottleneck), which, because it's being hammered by the spider, makes the website seem sluggish
Thanks to all at webmasterworld for testing gigablast! You've help me find and fix a few bugs.
