Appears Gigablast has joined the billion page index club today with a press release indicating they have 1,014,363,952 pages indexed. An excellent milestone to achieve for a smaller engine, moving them further along in the search space of the major players. There is some forum discussion over at WMW at this, detailing the new index and some new features added making them even better before. One of the members details that they have added a site search, custom search options, and better and faster searching abilities. According to Gigablast:
Among these are Dedicated Site Search (DSS) and Custom Topic Search (CTS). DSS gives webmasters the ability to provide their website's viewers with search capability for the specific website being viewed. CTS was announced on December 20, 2004 and allows webmasters to tailor their website's search feature to a custom topic.
Nice job guys!
