I'm curious - why does the "sniff" Aardvark Business Directory return Google search results?

The short answer is... it doesn't!

The longer answer is...

A search on http://www.aardvarkbusiness.net produces results from the Aardvark Business database. In the event of their being no results from that database, there is a backfill from AltaVista.

In addition if you perform any search, there is a search box at the bottom of the SERPs that allows you to search Google as an alternative should you not be able to find what you are looking for.

But... clicking on 'sniff' most definitely doesn't produce Google SERPs! Smile

The stuff you see as the top results can come from another smaller search engine but I can't remember the name of it off hand. Those are the ones which start with "Visit: ...." in the status bar when you roll over the link.

Had me worried there however, or at least I've not managed to find a faulty page. Then again, if people really want to use the Google results, thats not a problem as long as they are interested enough in what Google produces to click those links... Wink

Good point - that's from Mirago. There's also the Google AdSense ads, of course.

I was doing a search to see if I had added a few client sites to Aardvark Business, was surprised by the Sniff results which had me fooled into thinking the sites were in Aardvark.

If you know the sites in question, and the exact categories they were submitted to, I can look into this for you.
