How to see what Search Engines are good/bad ?

Hi Sven,

Can you make some kind of Search Engine STATS option where we can see what engines are working good for what platforms.
Having 1000 engines and not knowing which one are wasting time and recourses is not good practice I think.

    google + yahoo (+ some of its country specific variations). skip the rest.
  • Sven, can you make some function in software to give us stats about SE usage and success ?

    sorry no, too complicated and other things on the to do list first
  • @Miki - the best way to monitor it is to either generate a log of your activity, put it in an excel document, then double check what engines are having IP issues OR just sit there and watch your log as it scrolls by.  Almost everyone here says use Google and Yahoo US plus some of the other country variations, but you can also run into IP blocks and private proxy problems.  Best way is to start with the big ones and expand out if those aren't working well for you. 
  • I'm running only google RND now. May add more later
