I bet this survey is related to the recent introduction of a similar service by Google. There’s nothing like competition to keep companies on their toes. Altavista apparently ponders the introduction of filtering/sorting options by date and geography (two of several suggestions I sent to Google earlier this week). Google added a "sort by relevance/sort by date" option to the beta, only to remove it a few hours later. I guess they’re trying different things right now, but this option makes sense (it’s in their Usenet service already).
Update: the sorting choice by date/relevance is back.
I'm CEO of an online trade publishing firm in the marketing and defense verticals. We try to make news and data digestible and useful in an environment that is more noisy each day. This personal blog mixes my thoughts and interests on politics, business, software, and more, based on my business and personal experiences. Over the years I have posted items that turned out spectacularly wrong, and a few posts that stood the test of times better. Personal views only.
