Search engine relationships graph

All is not what it seems with Search engines. You may find that a minor search engine is merely a front for a Google database back end, or Yahoo back end.

I found this chart when wondering just who does Inktomi Slurp web spider give its information to. Its the Yahoo spider, but look at all the other search engines that get the results as well.

Yahoo provides the search results for Altavista as well. It defeats the purpose of using other search engines unless they get their data from multiple sources.

The Inktomi slurp has become the biggest hitting bot on the board at present with hits from google falling away owing to the duplicate content issue I have with the message board I suspect (see other post on it here somewhere)
