Default AOL move to GOOGLE

I was just curious if anyone knew when AOL was making its big switch to google? I'm curious because my sites have really high google rankings, and it's my number 1 referrer, and I'm hoping that AOL's move will definately boost my traffic.

I thought AOL was just going to use Google Adwords. Are they going to straight google results?

The last I heard Google was going to supply all AOL searches by end of summer, replacing Overture and Inktomi.

Yep, that's what I heard too.
Search results on AOL.co.uk are already powered by Google.

The switch seems to have happened 3-4 hours ago. AOL is now "live" with Google-powered searches. Awesome stuff, since I seem to rank very nicely in Google

I noticed a jump in my traffic from AOL right after the announcement (May 2.3%, June 4.7%) but only a very marginal increase since the "enhanced by Google" logo hit aolsearch.aol.com.

My site has some good placement in Google, so I'm scratching my head as to why my referrals haven't gone up by much more. When the announcement happened, I thought that AOL would become my second referrer (behind only Google).

My percentage of AOL users continues to rise, I've been monitoring it. While Google still gives me about 55%-60%, AOL has crawled to about 5% already.
