Because GOOGLE is so young to the internet and has become so popular in such a short time, I was just curious as to how dependant the CNCzone members were on GOOGLE!
Five years ago, it was AltaVista that had the popularity, and MSN has been trying to buy their way into popularity. As for web page placement, well that depends purely on content and HTML accuracy! (Keywords relivant to page content) Most other search engines are really small indexes of their choosen topics, and don't have multiple servers hosting multiple spiders to scan every item on the internet with the power of GOOGLE!
For years, YAHOO was a closed Index, and no other external spiders or search engines were allowed to index their content! It was only a few years ago that YAHOO dropped their draws and let GOOGLE in!
I do not know if YAHOO is still human edited, as it origonally boasted to be, but most of their index is so huge even they could not organize it! GOOGLE has helped them as well!
Most people who surf the web are not aware of the remote control software that roams the web 24-7, that the software is called robots and spiders! That each search engine has its own or many of them looking for new content for their public search results!
