I am seeing Inktomi results on Wanadoo search, with update inline with MSN update.

The last I had for them was that they were using FAST, it looks to me like FAST results have now been junked competely by Yahoo.

I heard that Wanadoo's biggest search term was 'Google' which really annoys them.

I don't think their volumes are worth writing home about, especially if they are merely a clone for Yahoo...shouldn't we just put them down as being an affiliate...?

RIP British search indicies. Once Mirago gets sold, that will be it.

Ian is correct - its ye old Inktomi index, its hard to trigger but with the right IP masking & language setting you can get the same results from Yahoo, Alltheweb & AV.
