It is interesteing how things change, a year ago the big rage was DMOZ and everybody and their brother started using their directory, it was thought to be the end of spidering SEs and SEO industry.
Huh? Seems surfers voted directories out! All directories (including Yahoo) and slow to update engines (Infoseek, Excite) lost their market share, on the other hand frequently refreshed spidering engines gained bunches (Google,AV,MSN).
This is good news, look at whats happening AOL, Hotbot and Lycos curbed DMOZ results display, Lycos is refreshing by way of Fast, new Infoseek search, stellar rise of Google...
The day Webcrawler starts updating I will probably start to wear shades :) :)

The day webcrawler updates, I'll pull back out the black arm band. We've been top five ranked under some great kw's forever there. I'd almost wonder if they are aren't top referrer for the year - certainly top 3, but Alta really cranked them out last fall for us.

I like the interface, but doesn't lit feel a bit like fast, which in turn feels a bit like google?

New look....Same results. I guess if you can't update your index you can at least update your look. Now, if only I could get into webcrawler....
