I just noticed GoTo results on HotBot.

They've gone AOL one better -- they are listing the top 3 at the beginning of the SERP, plus listing the 4th spot, squeezed in as a "featured link" between position 9 and 10.

Nice to know that if you fall below the third spot for a moment, you're not just paying a premium for GoTo only. I'm wondering how many different ways all these GoTo partners will invent to use the data.

Is anyone getting much traffic out of the Hotbot style listings?
