Hello All

I would like to know if anyone uses this search engine?

Which spiders feed this search engine?

Has anyone advertised with this search engine?

Thanks --any help would be appreciated

they were findwhat results in the searches I did, with probably their own broad fairly irrelevant (affiliate?) results in the sponsor "boxes" - amazon, ebay etc.

total waste of time at the moment.

That thing needs a lot of work before anybody should go calling it a 'search engine'.

I like how they picked elements from altavista, Google, and Yahoo to combine and form their 'own user experience'.

And most of the 'results' are affiliate links in any commercial related searches.

Please, if you are going to ask about a 'search engine' make sure it's a 'search engine' first.

I can't even find on their site how they get their results. Now that tells me, 1) they don't care about webmasters or 2) there is no free submit.

Thanks, but I'm happily paying all the portals I care too. :)

The Alexa rating is 67,225 compare that to Yahoo's No 1 and you know where this 'search engine' stands.

BAH. Most of the results seem to be affiliate links in many NON-commercial related searches, too.
