When I search for a company name (I can't currently divulge the name) on Wisenut.com, it shows that company's competitor web page along with the company for which I am searching.

Do you know where Wisenut gets its links? There is no description on the "competitor" listing, and these same results do not show up on Looksmart, even though I thought that Wisenut got some data from them.

I am wondering if it could be Yahoo, but I don't know for sure, and Bruce Clay's relationship chart doesn't show Wisenut. (normally I start on that chart)

Thoughts?

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, the results I'm getting on Wisenut are not duplicated on Looksmart.
