First the Registar & the Guardian and now hitting SEM news sources. It seems that freesearch.co.uk [freesearch.co.uk] is having a nice little media blitz. I know it's still brand spanking new, but is anybody seeing it show up in their log files yet?

Nothing seen yet, but then again its so new I haven't added it into the log analyser yet.

No reason why it shouldn't do well though, nice layout solid results (Overture + Inktomi), good response time - the dictionary feature is also innovative.

Nice! - remove the extra class declaration on line 58 and it will be extra nice!:

Nice looking and fast for sure. Nice results too. Love the name, can't believe it was available...

Agree with Ian....the site is the fastest I have seen all year, nice one. I suppose Overture must have some seriously fast machines. A server farms full of beasts!

Yes, it could be quicker if some of the whitespace was removed from the pages too.

I wonder if it's cached results actually, cos I doubt the technology they are using would search faster than Google! Or maybe it does! Great image search too.

Certainly not cached - The Overture element certainly isn't, it is live - so none of it is.

Just quick and clean.

Good luck to them - They are at the Publishers Conference here in Orlando... (I got a magnalite freebie.. nah nah na na na.)

Actually very simple to cache from search result suppliers, and so subtly that the user can never tell.

The only thing I don't like, (and I always try and find things I don't like after the things I do) is the fact that you can't easily submit your url, or have I missed something!

Good to see another UK engine, UK Based. Looks like the UK has some great entrepreneurs which can only be a good thing IMO.

Yes but isn't it all just an Overture feed?

Top and bottom listings those with the infinite symbol beside them are overture, the free listing below these look like they are INK not overture

Running the 'natural' serps through a http viewer shows www21.overture.com.

So what you are saying is that its pure OV. I have never bothered to look at the deep serps on overture, so their algo must be similar to ink.
Well at least I am in good company Ian Turner also thought it was ink.

>> deep serps on overture

I believe the backfill is provided by Ink.

It is 5 OV, followed by YINK I believe.

if it smells like Yink, it most probably is Yink.

Try looking up Dave_N in the freesearch dictionary.....

Or better still the image search......

It's fast, it's free to search, what more could you want?
