I just tried doing a Google site-search for an adsense related query and got no results. No results using All the Web either. Is anybody else experiencing same?

This is because Brett put up a Robots.txt file banning all bots. They slowed the site down too much. A new search engine for the site is on the way.

It's intentional. See the thread posted below.

Thanks - good to know there's a reason. Any idea what we're supposed to use in the meantime?

There are no real alternatives at the moment, other than spending a few hours reading old threads.
