With Google I am actually making good money and driving business to my company. But in Teoma I have the perfect rankings and I have seen no traffic.
Is it me or is Teoma not very popular. Recieving hundreds of referrals a day at spot #9 in google but no traffic at spot #1 and #2 in Teoma.

Two things have happened very recently:
Teoma results are now showing on askjeeves.com, and today Direct Hit closed and is redirecting to Teoma.com
With webtrends does teoma traffic come under Teoma? Or is it AJ or whatever??
Perhaps we could all put a search box for teoma on our site and get the ball rolling :)
I would agree with Brett on the note that Teoma will grow....seems right now it cant get smaller ;)
In its favour is a general disaatisfaction with search engines by the public, and a growing concern of webmasters that they are too dependent on google. We do have alltheweb of course who also provide great results, but they on a significnatly different business model than Teoma and google from what i have been able to pick up, accounting for the fact they dont seem worried about setting the ppopular search service world on fire.
Teoma is certainly one database to be in RIGHT NOW I often think that our good rankings of google is due to some extent that we were in there very very early.
In Web-time terms, Google maybe (dare I say it) losing some of its new "sheen" losing the google gloss. Amongst webmasters and the industry at least, I think there will be a lot of interest in anything new that looks to have the substance AND backing to compete down the line.

With Yahoo's algo factoring in Google's PR, that puts a lot of emphasis on ranking well in google to get good traffic from search engines and directories.
Since the launch around 24 hours ago, our hits from teoma have tripled, from around 6 a day last month to 20 today. I dont expect that to continue as im sure they are getting lots of hits now, but im expecting a gradual substantive increase, - (at least before they increase the index size!)
IMO the general consense im seeing here is that teoma is capable of mounting a long term assault to muscle its way into being a major SE player! Sounds great to me I wish them all the best, alongside gigablast? :)
The SE market seems a bit "new wave" to me. Is teoma "the next best thing"
If it can match Google referrals, its welcome to be!
