    Lightbulb AllTheWeb.com is better than Google!

    I just started using this search engine and I think it's better than Google.

    Anyone else?

    AllTheWeb now searches 2,095,568,809 indexed Web pages versus the 2,073,418,204 Web pages listed on Google's home page.

    Already the Internet's freshest index with a full refresh cycle of 7 - 11 days, AlltheWeb delivers comprehensive search results from over two billion Web pages and integrates them with award-winning breaking news results from thousands of news sources and hundreds of millions of multimedia, video, MP3, and software files all within a single search result page.

    Size isn't everything. AllTheWeb isn't near as relevant as Google, or even AltaVista.

    Besides Google searches much more than Fast. They've got 700,000 million usenet posts or so. Catalog pages, PDF files, images, etc.

    agreed, it's about relevancy vs size...

    But, if you want a great tool to query them all, try WebFerret @ http://www.zdnet.com/ferret/index.html

    I have been messing around with AllTheWeb the last couple of days, and as far as I can see for website and image searches it's better than Google IMO.

    Thumbs up competition is good

    I've only recently discovered alltheweb.com but I have to say it gives google a good run for its money. I hope they do well, we need more competition in the search engine arena.

    Have you seen the search box, from alltheweb, that you can place on your website? Very nice stuff

    ouch, ranked number 2 in Google for "pos software" and ranked 85th in AllTheWeb...stink, I wonder what they care about?

    Don't they get their primary results from DMOZ too?

    Google's been my primary search engine for the last couple of years, but now that I found www.AllTheWeb.com I think I will be using it more.

    You do know that FAST also powers Lycos? This isn't exactly a new search engine. They've been around for awhile, longer than Google I'm sure.

    I use FAST as a back up if Google doesn't come thru.

    As far as getting referral's goes there's no comparison - a top ranking on Google brings in loads more traffic than FAST and Lycos combined.

    All the web uses its own directory. Google is much more relevant than fast in search results. All the web is a nice backup though and no they don't get results from dmoz.

    Umm..

    Actually FAST uses DMOZ, not directly like Google, but they spider DMOZ sites. FAST doesn't have a directory.

    I've never been a big fan of AlltheWeb's search results and much prefer Google's. I've also never had as much good fortune achieving good listings in Fast either...

    Google's results are more relevant and I like that I dont have to spend a minimum of $2500 to run an ad.
    Thanks...Chris

    Yeah, low-cost ad solutions are always a plus...but with or without Adwords Select, I believe Google is still way ahead of any other SE.
