Alta Vista

Alta Vista was one of the worlds first search engines. For its time it did a good job of information retrieval but was poor on analysing data to give good quality results to users. The Alta Vista search engine is still online at www.altavista.com. Now owned by Yahoo! AltaVista has no unique results of its own and operates on the Yahoo! index.
