Search engine fixed?

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity I went back through all the Alamy search engine result anomalies reported in this thread and find that all of them seem to be fixed.


Search terms                                               Previously reported result          Latest Result

"stone wall" lake district [WOP] [RM]                       2,101                                      2,097


All the above seem to have been fixed (although I thought "in" should be ignored)? Hope I haven't made any typos.


Does this mean the search engine has now been fixed, or that Alamy have just patched the items reported to them above?


Is anyone else still seeing any other anomalies?

Thanks M.Chapman - thats extremely helpful but only as far as it goes -  I dont think we can assume that all the problems have been fixed, nor that new ones have not been created (cf Chaos theory and Jurassic park for film buffs  :lol: )
