    Gigablast SE?


    Anyone heard of this search engine? It's responsible for a gig of bandwidth on my site this month, and that's just in 8 days.

    They are building their database fast now (see also the other Gigablast thread from a couple of days ago )

    There was a press release that they have over 1 billion pages indexed now, and they include MY site now (finally), so that's good. They also have nice sitesearch stuff to put on your own pages...

    Now let's wait for people to actually use it

    hmm, interesting. They definitely need a design upgrade. It didn't look like a professional page to me.

    Gigablast is awesome. The site search features are really nice. I've already integrated into one of my sites and it's working great.

    They have an excellent content search and site search xml feed.

    interesting article. I guess selling search services is paying for the bandwidth.

    I use them when I need to find pages that other engines don't display.

    Looks like they took down the "Add URL" page - huh.
