I also removed Raging.com since the results were always 100% identicle to Altavista.com.
If you have a moment, could you test it out for me? I ran about 50 urls through the new routines, and all looks good to me, but I'd feel more confident if some other urls were run through it.
I checked another and canada.com and anz showed no links. Actually, canada had 24 links and Anz had 30 (when selecting the world option).
Is the radio button option on anz meant to opererate this ay? Are you trying to show the australian sites linking, or world sites?
Happy to do some more testing on other urls and share more detailed results if you wish.
Good work Brett.

0 should be fixed now - thanks - I hadn't noticed that.
I just wanted to get a few other Inktomi engines in the mix, because Hotbot's results are so suspect. Try a power search for links within a domain that has a - dash in its name.
I did seem to get a problem with Hotbot links
I tried three of my sites
The first and the last of those showed zero links from Hotbot, but when I clicked the link to Hotbot, that was showing a substantial number of links.
Try the power search for 'links to this url' on hotbot oldtimer - use a full url to a destination page. It is never right except for base level domains.
I've thought about adding a 'hotbot2' for doing the two versions, but we are slow enough as it is now. That Anzwers is so slow at times.
Oil; that was part of what prompted me to update things was the messed up results. It is hard to track when the se's change formats. It isn't something I can monitor.
