Has anyone else had any problem searching on Direct Hit? For a couple of days now when I do a search (and a few popular ones at that) I yield either no results or if I click thru on a couple of pages there is are no more listings.

Sometimes if I start my search all over again it will produce results when before it didn't have any.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem too?

I've had that problem with them before too. Personally, I think their technology needs a bit of reworking :) perhaps that's why Ask bought Teoma?

Offhand, I can't think of another SE that is more buggy...it's a bit eerie when they say 'more results' and then you click and get nothing, go back, click again, and it works fine...hopefully they read here too and will fix the problem.

I think they've been shifting database and haven't learned to do it as gracefully as Google. Check the Direct Hit Database thread.
