[Fixed] Add the google killer to the list of search engines

Jul 30, 2008 22:49 - google is the next AOL ;)

Anyway adding them to the list of search engines so that they don't show up as a referer will be quite a smooth move.

 * Search engines for statistics
 * The following substrings will be looked up in the referer http header
 * in order to identify search engines
 * @todo move to admin interface (specific list editor), include query params
 * @global array $search_engines
$search_engines = array(
	'', // q=

	'',	// q
	'', // q
	'', // GW=

So adding one is an easy do-it-yourself operation.

Good luck

Good deal - thanks. I sorta knew it was easy but I just don't poke around in files much anymore.

Oh and I read a news bit about cuil a few days ago, then saw a referer hit from them. The person who wrote cuil wrote something that searches previously that google actually bought up. She (I'm pretty sure the person is a she) then decided "google is lame" and quit and wrote a new thing. I just used them and, to me, based on one search, cuil sucks. But hey calling something a google killer is fun :)

Remarkable that you saw the referrer, so probably it actually *is* indexing something.

Yeah that's why I said right now they suck. They might INDEX a billion million gazillion pages, but they don't return any matches to search strings. Doh!
