all my pages are in and they rank as high as they do in Google and Fast.
I thought the Teoma algo, was a little special, but now i can see it is, Thumbs up. It dose'nt have the baised weighting on the base url, because of the incoming links, its actually listing the targetted pages, which is better than i have seen from Fast, or Google.
When that is sorted out Google and ATW will have serious competition.

Still seeing a difference between Teoma and Ask Jeeves. For my most important keyword phrase my site is at #6 on Teoma and #1 on Ask Jeeves (I'm not complaining!).
Could the data from Direct Hit be incorporated into Ask Jeeves and not in Teoma? That might explain the differences. They did mention something about having incorporated Direct Hit technology.
Ask Jeeves uses the Teoma DB but they may not be trying to use it with the same algorithm as Teoma. Not that I know this for sure, but it would explain why they are not identical.
