I had a looksee what Geona was about and first impressions are of a Google-esque, powerful SE with the makings of a future market player.
Has this engine been around for a while or is it a new challenger? Does anyone know?

Looks to be pretty darned new McFox. According to the Whois info the domain name was first registered in Oct 2003, so just a few months ago.
It also appears at this point that they're pretty much only displaying results from the DMOZ database. A lot more recent RDF dump than Google is using too.
I didn't do a thorough check of this, but I know of one competitor site that got dropped from DMOZ a few months ago. Geona doesn't show it at all and Google still thinks it's in its old category. G still shows all of the various DMOZ-related backlinks for this site too, even though most of them no longer list the site anywhere.
Also, I got the category on one of my own sites changed about a month ago, and Geona is showing it in its new category. So a very recent DMOZ dump is being employed.
I didn't see their bot in my log files, but then again I only looked at the last couple of days on two sites.
I wonder if the only way to get in will be to make sure you're listed in DMOZ? I didn't see an Add URL link anywhere other than the ones leading to DMOZ.

For my own site, they haven't spidered it yet, and it doesn't show up for a search on my company name, but it is in their copy of the ODP.
So I'm not clear about where they're finding sites to spider. If it's ODP, they haven't gotten through everything yet. But the search results are definitely coming only from what they've spidered.

I think this SE is one to watch closely for future developments.

Great Stuff. That's why I like highrankings forum most.
Good going McFox

Give me a DMOZ directory search based on the content of the site, instead of the content of the editor's description, and I will use that *first* for every search.
