We here at Optimize Your Web have seen a lot of activity on our blog recently where large corporations are searching for the phrase “Indextools Rubix” and showing up at our site. All of these companies are know either for their IT solutions or data mining tools. This is unusual traffic, specially over such a short time. As Yahoo has bought Indextools me and my team have been wondering what will become of Rubix as it does not make any sense for Yahoo to keep that tool as a part of their arsenal.
So the question is; Is Yahoo! selling the Indextools jewel Rubix?
OK what is up Doc? Microsoft now counts for nearly 50% of total visits at this blog. As I mentioned some days back this has been going on for some weeks now.
The visits according to my Yahoo! Indextools are all from Microsoft.com, WA, Washington and either they are clearing their coockies after each visit or there is big group of people testing/searching. These are all mostly one phrase searches, MSIE 7 and low screen resolutions.
The phrases that I am seeing are search, optimize, content, google and so on.
