Is anyone actually getting hits from Vivismo?

Thanks.

Vivisimo doesn't have a spider, it's a meta engine with a unique way of aggregating & presenting the information. :)

So, if you are in any of the majors, you'll get into Vivisimo.

Check out Vivisimo Search Engine [vivisimo.com] for more.

Yes, it's a meta althoug they call themselves different.

But I'm curious if you're seeing referrals?

Thanks,
Astrid

I've seen a couple -> nothing to get excited over, though. I'm not convinced, no matter how 'cool' a meta can ever seriously get to a 'contender' anymore...because usually, there are so many paid listings, etc.

I'd like to be proved wrong, though. :)

I have one US site that's currently doing 2000-2500 uniques per day. I average about one referral per day from Viv.

According to Alexa, Vivisimo has a daily reach of 280 per million users... so, only 1 out of very 3,571 users uses Vivisimo. Compare that with Google, where 1 out of every 10 users visit...

Some comparisons. 1 our every X users uses these SEs:

alltheweb.com: 465
teoma.com: 1600
vivisimo.com: 3570

daily reach of 280 per million users

That can't be right at all. Google gets (according to their pages, anyway) 150 million queries / day.

So, if 1/2 the people at Vivisimo search -> and that 280 million figure is correct -> Vivisimo should be driving referrals on par with Google.

Hmmm...something is not right with that Alexa number. :)

I didn't say "280 Million". I said 280 per Million.

So, out of a daily group of a million users, 280 will visit Vivisimo.

Out of a daily group of a million users, 100,000 will visit Google.

Big difference!

Is anyone actually getting hits from Vivismo?

I've got a bunch of these:

http*//vivisimo.com/vivisimo/Snippets.html

Yet, when you open that in a browser (IE5.5) the page is blank and 'with errors'.

The code:

<HTML><BODY onload="parent.writeSnippetsFrom()"></BODY></HTML>

I'm curious what this is all about.

My bad, duncan12...didn't read your post properly!

So, out of 1,000,000 web users -> 280 will check out vivisimo.

Okay, that makes sense. I know have a much more realistic expectation as to what I should expect from them....hm, but that interface *is* pretty cool.

As for that js snippet there, pendanticist, I have no idea -> perhaps RCJ, since he seems to get 'traffic' has seen it before?

I see that same snippet in my tracker when I get occasional Vivisimo hits.

I just got a visitor from Vivisimo. Apart from the pages visited, I have no other information on the user's search. From a SEO perspective, Vivisimo is worthless.

Good points about that javascript bit -> I wonder if Vivisimo will change that...to try to 'pique' our interest, so to speak.

These days, it seems like so many sites are log file spamming that I believe any engine should at least have the keyword in the referrer otherwise, how do we know it's *not* just some more log file spam?

Not saying they are - just throwing it out there.

I'm getting some from Vivisimo. I havn't been keeping track, but I do think I've seen more in the last few months. Still nothing compared to the majors though.

The snippets thing is because their search results are displayed on a framed page.
