Has it propagated to the actual AOL software yet?

OK so I know that Google is 100% on [search.aol.com...] now and I see a few referals in my logs. But I am also seeing [aolsearch.aol.com....] Is that the search that actual AOL customers are searching from? Has google started showing in searches through the AOL customer interface yet? Unfortunatly (or maybe luckly) I dont have AOL isp so I can't check.

Thanks

Well, I can't quite tell. My site for my major keyphrase is #1 & 2 just like in Google but it also appears in #3 and #4 (unlike Google).

Google is showing as the search provider for AOL customers, at least for me in Calif., for last two days.

AOL referals for today are significantly higher than yesterday. But I don't have an AOL account either, so I don't know for sure.

I have an aol account and I can tell you that Google results are the default search results when using the aol browser. Ink is gone.

The Google database they are using is almost a month old.

Bye bye to Inktomi. And good riddance. Google will keep those AOL members happier, for sure. It's going to be very interesting to see what path Yahoo chooses.

Thanks Rugles! Adios to Inktomi and their pay per spidering fiasco. Search relevancy = se profit, not pay-per-inclusion.

Patience. Brett has installed a garden hose into the neighboring Starbucks...to assure he has ample coffee to keep him awake...as he keeps careful watch on Google. When he determines there is an UPDATE launched...he will announce it...then we're all gonna have to kick in $10 each to pay off Starbucks for the coffee. ;)
