First, let me reassure all those in this, and other threads on similar topics, that we would never inject sub-standard services into the mixture that
delivers ATS -- at least, not on purpose.
Several people have given us some very high praise for the Samuru.com search engine, one from a highly regarded technology blog:
Big Data Search Engines Are
Big Right Now
, and several discussions on "Hacker News" (not "hacker-hacker," but the discussion forum for Ycombinator, the biggest
technology incubator) have shown people are getting good results. Even Matt Cutts, Google search evangelist, liked what he saw and will be
But you don't care about that, you care about search on ATS. And I think I discovered why Samuru is doing much more poorly than when originally
Back when we were the target of some attacks, we consolidated our IT infrastructure, and improved a few areas as well. It looks as though that caused
a problem with our auto-generated site maps, which are XML files that assist search engines in finding new content on sites, as well as understand the
structure of a site.
The new maps are being generated now, after some code updates. Once Samuru has everything re-indexed -- might be 2-5 days for completion, there are
more than 3 million pages on ATS -- we'll see if there's an improvement.
Sorry for the issues, please be patient, we have ever expectation that this will eventually blow away any other site search in terms of quality of
results -- we're working on the appearance.
