Note: We are unable to display Teoma results at this time. These are our alternative results.
I've seen that once before, on June 19th. That time, the "alternative results" were identical to the Direct Hit results available at MSN and Hotbot. AskJeeves was similarly affected at the time.
I didn't find this thread soon enough to see what the alternative results were this time, but the lack of results for multi-word searches would be consistant with Direct Hit. The more complex the search terms are, the less likely it is that DH has accumulated enough data to make recommendations.
The thread about the June 19 incident: [webmasterworld.com...]
Back then, I thought maybe Teoma was trying to integrate DH into their system. Now, I'm thinking DH is just the fallback they go to when the regular database is down.

Yes, that's it. I've seen this happen twice before and seems to last about 4 or 5 hours. I have terrific ranking on the old DH db and everytime this happens, I get all excited that Teoma/Jeeves has moved me to the top - LOL
