    LOL!
    But actually, if you when you launch a site you get so much attetion that your site collapses, it might not be such a bad start after all!
    It means you made a lot of noise, and that's not that bad :)

    They need to get their image allocation sorted. I checked a dozen or so of my Google phrases (page ranked 1, position <=10) to see if my commercial site was well listed there too, only to see my images allocated to my competitors!

    I think their algorithms need a bit of tweaking, that's pretty sloppy for a company that borrowed $33M to launch the business!

    that image thing is fraught with difficulty.

    I searched for my office supplies site office supplies and if you look at the listing on the right for shopperuk.com it seems that they've grabbed the tesco logo for the image.

    eek!

    Does anyone else think it's a poor name to choose?

    Yes. You can see their thinking, lets be googlesque and go with something 'different'.

    Will lose loadsatraffic to cool.com and others, shocking choice really.

    Perhaps they didn't "leave" google but their skills were not quite suitable? ;)
