In the last 48hrs, Altavista, Inktomi, Google, and Fast have all been out spidering aggressively.

Have heard atleast one other engine will be joining the fray this weekend (possibly tomorrow).

I have Jeeves pulling each of my pages 4 or 5 times this month, much more than December and much, much more than November. Going like heck the past couple of day.

Scooter, Ink, FAST and G-bot all very active yesterday.

side topic [webmasterworld.com] split off.

Ya, I was just coming here to post I'd seen Teoma too.

All me need now is Wisenut to join em, and we could bring the internet to a stand still.

Crawling -- heck Ink has updated. I have a site that is less than 6 days old that is already showing up in MSN searches. Never submitted.

(Not on Hotbot yet.)

Google found it too.

Looks like you may have gotten your wish. All .org's are down.
