You are right. My site has risen too. I like this. :)

we're up 27 places on a single word term...but more importantly they've finally got rid of the outdated description that changed late last year...only ten months...knock nine months off that and they might almost be in shouting distance of Google

it's a lot better than it was...they need to decide whether it's a search engine or an ad delivery system though...hopefully this update implies they may choose the former

We're back in after getting dropped during the last update. Nice positioning again, it's just too bad that we don't see any traffic from them.

there's no direct traffic from Teoma...but we get some from Ask Jeeves that is down to Teoma...I shall be expecting that to increase for our sites now that Teoma's moderately up to date again

The results display seems to have shifted.

Now I get "Top 94 of about 381 (Showing 1-10):" and results from the same domain are indented, showing only two with a link to "more results from www.foo.com"

Never seen this in Teoma before.

[added] It seems you can now use the site: operator as in google, alltheweb, and others. [/added]

Good find.

I like the looks of this. It is very useful and it shows that Teoma is not resting on its laurels.

I am seeing some very nice SERPs here.

Happy days! # 3 to # 1 for a two word search... and for a one word search for a VERY popular term, # 11... but the site is # 3 on the right sidebar "Refine Your Search"!

Too bad I am considering blocking the ask.jeeves bot because it is SO poorly behaved!

We went from #11 to #1 also.

Good to see that teoma finally got their act
together and realized who's number 1.

Well, Teoma hasn't picked up that most of our site has shifted down a folder and yet it has picked up a page with
<meta name="robots" content="NOINDEX, FOLLOW"> on it.

Should've added this page to robots.txt...
Seeing more referrals from Ask but not significant. I have to admit that I'm using Teoma more often now as a backup to Google.
