Looks the biz.

Very fast. [teoma.com...]

So teoma, has the following features.

1. Sponsored listings, not sure from who yet, though looks similar to listings on MSN/LS network.
2. Key words/terms associated to the search term and resulting serps, a brief version of FAST's Beta.
3. Resources attributed to the Key term, geared towards academic, land search term related directories.

However the update from the old Teoma listings, does not look that significant in its re-index. I'm sure the extent of the re-index will come to light in a couple days.

So what do you think ?

umm, Why is Teoma running on Windows? Last time I checked major sites don't run on Windows. The licensing costs are going to kill them if they become successful.

I was hunting for that. Cheers Ian.

I just had a decent hunt through the SERPS, they have not changed from what i can see.

The Overture listings make sense.

If they are going to make it they need to pick up new sites, remember inktomi already had market share before going down hill.

LM,

I would agree, according to the Registars account.

Currently, Teoma is aware of about 900 million URLs, crawls about 400 million, but cuts out duplicates and spam to end up with a dataset of about 200 million fully indexed pages (only double the size it was last July when the service launched). By comparison, Google has over 2 billion URLs, of which not all are full-text indexed. Gardi said Teoma's ideal index size will be between 350 million and 500 million pages. "There are not 2 billion useful pages on the web," he said.

I would definetly agree with major duplication of Google's listed sites, just from one competitors collection of sites, that i know. They have 18 sites, with graphically different front pages, title's and descriptions, but the core content, of the site is the same.
