very similar to the inktomi PFI arrangement then.
Gives new meaning to being on the first 3 pages of results.
<added>Looks like they're working on it in real time. It's jumping all over the place now. I got to page 4 then back then 5 then back and so on. Then all the page numbers across the bottom disappeared. Kinda fun to watch.
It's one thing to be able to build an amazingly relevant index full of content rich sites that in many ways reflects the thoughts and feelings of the 'net as a whole, but its another thing to spider sites that can afford to pay up, possibly excluding other more relevant sites that don't pay (like university research and personal web sites about highly technical but small interest topics). Paid for placement search engines put results in the hands of the corporations instead of the every day web publisher.
Ironically my website is indexed and has great rankings with Teoma without having even submitted it to their index (thanks!!) but I read in the Teoma forum that they are spidering every site they can get to until "they get their database up to the size of their competitors." Then, authority based page-rank or not, Google will be appreciated even more.
