Well, it's no secret that Teoma has been prepping a new build to be launched next week. Apparently, The Register refused to honor the embargo on the story until then.

Sounds like now would be a good time for everyone to get their base references for search results for future comparisons' sake.

"But the company also has high hopes for its standalone Google-alike site, Teoma.com, as well as the potential for providing search services to unaffiliated portals. Revenue generating features such as paid URL submission"

Paid URL submission and "google-alike"....uh huh.

yeap,

it seems to want to, offer corporate search solutions (such as ink), as well as go for Google's crown (that will take some beating).

Let's see what the new release is like !

Entertaining article, made me laugh a few times. Everyone needs competition or things get stale. Lets hope both search engines come out ahead here. I don't feel like paying for all of these results still theres too many and by having so many its not quality results - just people who submit their site for a little cash.

Eliteweb,

I agree, competition is a very good thing. Things can only get better, or at least i hope they do. From what AJ is proposing; we will see whether they can get the clients behind them privately to fund Teoma publicly on the net, in which it has the resources, to really give google a good battle.

The build out next week, is the first part which i am sure, everyone here will give thumbs up and down on all its various features, but the real test will be getting rthe eturn on investment, for future expansion.

When did teoma get the new logo?

Am I the only one who thinks that this kind of drop shadow, the emphasis of the "o", and the grey "tm" are a very cheap rip-off?

Have any of you submitted url's to Teoma and what have your results been? I just submitted four of mine; looking to see what they will do. Thanks!

Looks like the san francisco chronicle released some stuff too. Countdown is about 22 hours if I can do my math right?

From the register article, it seems as though teoma is using a CLEVER type algorithm with hubs/authorities. I never looked much at temoa, but it might be a good time to reconsider the CLEVER papers. Anybody ever find any specific papers behind the teoma algos?

The story mentioned in the original post is NOT by the Register, but by ComputerWire. The register just runs stories from time to time from ComputerWire.

Am I the only one wondering whether the "communities" structure -- the sorta circular networks identified by Teoma that identify topic groups and authority sites -- is to some degree the same phenomenon that got so many sites in PR zero trouble with Google?

Any comment?
