IBM the King of Search?

Discussion in 'All Other Search Engines' started by anthonycea, Jun 11, 2004.

    Look out folks, not to toot my own horn, but IBM is now crawling the net.

    I have talked about this in the past and they are hitting the servers big time with their BOT.

    I just seen it for the first time today 6/11/2004

    IBM has something called "web fountain" that is going to be used by the largest companies in the world to datamine existing corportate databases and tie them all together.
    SEMrush
    IBM is bigger than MICROSOFT AND GOOGLE PUT TOGETHER, SO LOOK FOR THEM TO MAKE BIG WAVES IN SEARCH.

    IBM has a market capitalization in the $150Bs and $8.5B in cash.
    MSFT has a market capitalization just shy of $290B and $56B in cash.

    Datamining corporate databases is very different from web search.

    You're welcome to be ignorant, but you can keep it to yourself.

    Why don't you give us the sales figures of Google, IBM and Microsoft my friend since you hold yourself so smart, can you do that for this forum?

    Next, you show yourself, by your silly statements what you called me.

    Can you answer this question, why is the IBM crawler crawling the internet?

    This crawling of the internet has nothing to do with corporate search.

    Please respond with your answer if you have the _______s.

    cool down

    IBM crawler(s) have been round till end 2002 -
    A crawler is packaged with the IBM Iseries - so one can build whatever one wants - thus not all IBM crawlers are actually IBM

    To my limited knowledge and according to IBM docu there is presently no full commercial application using this.

    It is nice though as the crawler is well behaved and is a good indication if a site is properly linked across the net as it seems only to appear after quite a while but once there it comes by regularly.

    So I always use it as an indicator that a domain or site is in the mainstream.

    I hate to insult your intelligence, but again these crawls are from IBM itself.

    I know that you Google lovers are having a hard time with this and you Microsoft lovers really do not like the fact that IBM is going to knock some ARSE's around in this industry, but too bad.

    IBM is the biggest software vendor in the world, contrary to popular false beliefs.

    IBM supports open source Linux programs, if you do not like that, too bad.

    IBM is getting into the search business, if you do not like that , too bad.

    Maybe I will post some articles for you all if you continue your bias comments, maybe I will let you find them on your own.

    anthony, settle down dude...

    Okay, so what makes you think IBM is getting into the search business? Just because they crawled your site, certainly does not mean they are going to be a search engine. There are many reasons your site would be crawled by something other than a search engine spider.

    What was the user agent you were crawled with?

    Shawn, I will scan the server log and email it to you if you would like, but I will not publish it on the forum, send me by PM your email address.

    I will post articles on this for the public to view on IBM getting into search for the public to view on Digital Point Forums. :eek:

    Correction to my previous post. The link was previously noted incorrectly. It should have noted as "Disable Google Statistic Gathering" and not "Disable Google Toolbar Autoupdate".


    Mr. ThinkBling, the above is your quote from the Google Toolbar thread here on Digital Point.

    You had mentioned a false fact and were retracting it with the above statement.

    Remember when you stated "The Google toolbar autoupdater can be disabled"

    Next the other falsehood is quoting me in this thread as saying "blah, blah, blah" Can you show us all where I ever said that in my life on any forum?

    Please "GET REAL"

    anthonycea, it was a mis-typed thought, not a falsehood and was corrected. The "blah, blah, blah" quote was a bit of caustic wit used to expose your folly.

    Are you always this sensitive?

    Eery is a good word to use. Nobody should be frightened, but when you open up an auto-update door like that, you'll want to make sure on what it's bringing it in.

    Is anybody, other than the overly paranoid, really afraid of Google? They would loose their rep if they ever tried pulling something shady.

    Not me... I'm not a Google lover, but they are by far the most up-front, "good" company I've run across. That opinion of course is subject to change if I ever think they are doing anything "bad". :)

    Would be an interesting company to work for to say the least. If they ever open up an office in San Diego, I'll try to get a part-time job there, and donate my paycheck to charity just for a hobby.

    Google will not be in the search business much longer.

    I just noticed on 6/11 that an IBM bot has visited most of my sites. Seesm to start off slow...will be interesting to see how much it takes from each site and how often it visits.

    As far as another SE goes - I'm glad. The more the merrier. Nothing drives innovation like competition.
