Since its purchase of AllTheWeb, Overture has apparently been busy making improvements to the search engine. Some of these were discussed by Gary Price over at ResourceShelf:

  • Clustered results — perform a search and you’ll find your results clustered into categories at the bottom of the page
  • URL Investigator — just enter a URL into the search box, and AllTheWeb will show you a plethora of helpful information, a list of sites that link to that URL, web pages indexed under that URL, WhoIs information for the site, as well as a link to the Wayback Machine for any cached versions of the site.
  • Conversion utility — just type “convert:” and the number and unit of measurement (for example, “convert:15mi” for 15 miles), and AllTheWeb will convert your query into comparable numbers for other units of measurement.

A nice set of new tools.
