Not really ... because it also uses yahoo's categories and weighting factors...

If you do a search on Google and then do the same search on Yahoo, you will notice a difference ... my search on the term Linux Help (on google and yahoo) show very similar 1-10 but from that point on the lists start to diverge.

Yahoo does use the google technology to perform their searches...

You mean there are other search engines then google? That's just crazy talk!

I followed a link from another site.
Specificly, the Beginners section of Linuxlinks.com

The site description says, "We have our own custom guides for those who find the regular HOWTOs a little confusing. "
That 's what got me here. biggrin.gif
