Yahoo search is OK I s'pose (even if they have - temporarily I hope - lost my homepage), but ATW was the only SE I could get consistantly good results from when I was actually trying to find anything (nothing to do with finding my own sites).
I do agree with you,
from Spain similar Inktomi,
and I an nowhere to find,.....
great news you bring :)
Donīt know if to laugh or cry..
Lucky I did snapshots on my things.

After an article on C4 news this evening about a producer called DJ Dangermouse who has mixed together The Beatles White Album with JayZee's Black Album to create The Grey Album... I ran a search on Google for "the gray album".
Then, out of curiosity, I ran the same search on alltheweb to see what different sites it might throw up. I imagined I might get some more interesting alternative resources and / or weblog entries.
How wrong I was.
Most of Google's front page has relevant listings for Dangermouse's Grey Album.
Most of alltheweb's front page has listings for David Gray and Macy Gray. (There is one relevant entry).
I knew it was about to happen but still very sad to see.... why replace a perfectly good search engine, surely AV would've been the better candidate to do testing on. ATW had been my Google alternative.
What will Opera do now that ATW has changed?
Also noticed ATW logo link now sending data back to Yahoo.com
Anyone know the approximate percentage split of their traffic from US, Eurpoe, Asia, all other? I assume they have a far greater split of traffic from the UK and Europe?
Might as well start putting this to use. Crying doesn't help anyone. :-)
How depressing. The web's best advanced search page is now gone. The word filter section no only offers title or text. All of the link related options have been removed.
These are my sentiments exactly. Allthe web had some wonderful advanced features not found on Google or Yahoo or MSN.
I continue to feel the Yahoo is all about efficiency, even if it upsets people. Having been involved in their webhosting program, I can tell you their drive toward efficiency has completely driven me away.
I can tell you that I now have yet another reason NOT TO VISIT sites owned by Yahoo. Too bad, but I've got better things to do than waste time with Yahoo (who I predict is headed toward becoming the next Altavista).
My sentiments exactly that Y is heading down the same road that Altavista did.
While I was concerned when my main site wasnt showing up in the results as I have had it for 7 years and I could easily have done something wrong during this time to upset a new algo.....
A 2nd site that I do joint marketing with just got penalized in the Yahoo results. This makes me laugh as the site is clean. Yahoo is pathetic.
They are eliminating high quality sites from their index either based on an algo that is too high strung or a greedy bunch of executives that have given the command to get rid of sites so that webmasters will start paying more to advertise.
Well Im cancelling $600 a month for featured directory listings and will not spend a dime in paid advertising on any Yahoo site. While I really think Overture is great, at least before Site Match, Googles paid advertising works fine and they give me plenty of organic traffic.
But in YahooSoft's eyes, this was one more necessary step to increase their market share and Spin Doctor themselves into being the biggest search engine on the block.
I wonder if former ATW searchers will migrate to Teoma.
