Does anyone know why ASk.com might be ignoring my website? It has been live for over a year now and is in the index of all the other search engines, but not in Ask.

To complicate the problem, I don't see an option to submit/suggest a new URL on ask.com either.

Anyone know what the problem/solution is?

Thanks.

Also, I just read the FAQ and it says they support sitemaps, but there's no information on how to submit sitemaps either.

sigh...

Yes there is: [about.ask.com...]

Q: Does Ask.com support sitemaps?
A: Yes, Ask.com supports the open-format Sitemaps protocol. Once you have prepared the sitemap, add the sitemap auto-discovery directive to robots.txt as follows:

SITEMAP: [the...] URL of your sitemap here.xml

The sitemap location should be the full sitemap URL. Alternatively, you can also submit your sitemap through the ping URL:

[submissions.ask.com...] URL of your sitemap here.xml
