I see only Ink now? I have tried many many searches and they all come up ink?

I am wondering now... I just finished clearing out all my cashed pages, cookies and history, could this have something to do with why some people see the old google and some see the new ink results? Someone else stated in another thread they got ink from work and google from home so...? or maybe its just ink in Kelowna?

Ink's been showing up at different local Yahoos for a while now. Some people were getting Ink on the main Yahoo for a while just recently, including me. It was sweet, almost two weeks of fun. :)

Added:
I can get Ink on just Yahoo Canada even from here in Southern California, it's nothing like Google. It is nothing like what I was seeing on the main Yahoo when it was Ink either.

They got mixed up a long time ago, picked up the new location of a site as well as where it was previously, redirected with a 301. So the new location index page got dumped and has been out of getting Ink results, which always converted well.

Dead in the water with them, even 'til now. Both were dumped, assumed for duplicate content, which it really wasn't. Except it was in Yahoo/Ink beause of the directory listing, but nowhere anyplace else using Ink.

I changed it to a "this site has moved" page with a link to the new location - which is the page they now have and are showing for the two word search.

It kind of looks like they're playing catch-up, which is a good thing. Should be very interesting, but what I'm seeing at Yahoo Canada isn't what I'd call quality for that search.

Added more:
Getting what looks like Ink at Yahoo Canada even searching the "whole web" but it's entirely different from what was at main Yahoo. Local is lousy (Amazon and such), the "entire web" is more like it. Differences between different searches. Nice from where I sit.

I am getting some sort of Inktomi/Altavista/Alltheweb combination in Netscape but Google results appear in Internet Explorer.

I'm in Southern California, but I still see Inktomi results on Y! Canada
