For certian search terms, all i'm getting in the top ten SERPs at the moment are ODP RDF dumps on various sites. I can only put this down to a good ODP listing for the KW and Teoma's DB being rather empty of relevant sites.

Anyone else seeing SERPs like this?

I was just doing some deep digging in Teoma. By the time I got to page 9 of the SERP's I was seeing a lot of ODP clones. The DB ended for my search term after 13 pages. So from pg 9 - 13 it was a lot of ODP-clone sites.

It does look like Teoma starts coughing up ODP clones when it starts running out of regular sites that match the KW's.

I do hope they expand the DB some more.
