I hope you've noticed that NL db appears to be growing. I just got back 236,547,560 records in its db!

How many and which other SEs are actually growing their db?

Noticed significant growth in a short time. 200million was normal for a long time. Looks like it's a major build-up. Get your sites added while you have the chance.

Well, they did all that tv advertising this winter and early spring. I think that has a little effect. They need to nuke the domain name and find something cute and fuzzy.

We've just coined the phrase Northern Blight!

I still think this is a shame because it's not a bad source of information. It spiders the web (my part anyway) more than others.

How about triffic(sm) or altgooya(sm) or yagoo(sm) or mr magoo, no, that's not right.
