I really missed Infoseek, Excite, Webcrawler and Altavista etc when they are independent entities. When there were no charges for submission of web sites. I enjoyed those times when you compete against each other to get a higher ranking during their searches, each search engines according to their own characteristics.
Nowadays most if not all are paid search engines and quite a number are already merged as one......
I used excite back in those days and none of those engines you mentioned are as accurate as google anyway.
Its the survival of the fittest, if you are crap then you will be guaranteed extinction. Same goes to hosting companies.
Its harsh but its for the better.
And I dont like the way you can get on top of those engines by modifying the META tags. Porn companies came up in the results no matter what you typed.
Type in "pizza", porn comes up.
Type in "bob marley", porn comes up.
Type in "pamela anderson", even MORE porn comes up.
What were they thinking back then??!!!
