Directhit (directhit.com) ranks sites based on click throughs
from their search engine users. Of course this means that new
sites may never be seen (they are new, so no one has cliked on
them, so they are not highly ranked, so they are not seen...).
Is anyone aware of tools for automatically doing searches, finding
the desired result, then "clicking" on it? This doesn't seem like
it should be very difficult and it should help get things "started".
BTW, directhit is used by hotbot and others.
