I think we covered this in one of the other posts here - can't recall of the top of my head.

You might try a site search, or browse through some of the older threads...:)

btw, moved this from alternative search engines to here

thanks jeremy..

If anyone knows what command shows all URLs of a site in the pure ink results, can you please drop a post..
I was unable to find this info using the search...

Thanks all..

Hi all,

The query "domain:site.com" should work, e.g. "domain:yahoo.com" :)

Hi Inktomi,
Thank you! I was going nuts trying to figure out how to check, that sure does the trick!

Thanks again! Happy Holidays to All!

Hi all,

I tried the "domain:site.com" query on HotBot and on Pure Search and I am seeing different results. I am also seeing this with other queries.

Does anyone know the difference between the results shown on Pure Search and the ones on HotBot?


 1:56 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

I just tried the "domain:mysite.com" on Hotbot and Msn.

only showing 2 urls :(

Considering over 15 urls have been submitted, and show as being active via PositionTech, and have been for the last 6 months.

so whats going on here then!

Searching for domain:host.isp.net/~myname returns zero results on pure search, though all of my pages show up when I search for the appropriate keywords. Any solution to this problem?


 2:58 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

Shakil, By default we (and most likely MSN and Hotbot) limit the number of URLs displayed to two per domain. When the "domain:" prefix is used we override the default and display all indexed URLs from the domain.


 4:44 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

I'm seeing the same results as Shakil: When I search on domain:mysite.com or domain:www.mysite.com, both HotBot and MSN show only two pages even though many more pages are in the index and turn up in regular searches.


 5:32 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)


When I use "domain:www.mysite.com" I only get two resulting URL's listed.

What's the dill-ee-oh?


 6:14 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

europe, frontpage - Jim from PositionTech already explained what the deal is.

Jim but that doesn't make sense. If Shak is paying for more, then the domain:site.com should show him all those URL's because it should override the default. Or am I missing something?


 6:19 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

domain:mysite.com at search.positiontech.com works works for me


 6:59 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

Yes, the domain: override works at search.positiontech.com (I just checked), but not at HotBot or MSN.


 9:00 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)


Our search results are limited to two URLs per domain. We believe this enhances the users experience as searchers are given a better selection of domains from which to evaluate. The "domain:" prefix overrides our default 2 doc setting by allowing an unlimited number of URLs from the same domain to display. MSN, Hotbot and others may be displaying two URLs with the "domain:" prefix but not because only two URLs are in Inktomi's indexed but because they are defaulting to two unique URL per domain per search.

Well...I am missing something then.

When I search on MSN for example for domain:mysite#1.com ... I get TWO results from that site.

When I do a search for domain:mysite#1.com on search.positiontech.com ... I get only ONE listed page result.

However, when I search on positiontech for another of our domains like domain:mysite#2.com ... I get several hundred results.

Doesn't make sense.


 9:51 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

Are you trying the variations on www.domain. and just domain.com?


 10:53 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

Are you trying the variations on www.domain. and just domain.com?

I just tried both variations with the same result on search.positiontech.com... only one result showing. However, there are two results on msn and hotbot.

Go figure.


 10:57 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)


Thanks for the help, just tried on search.positiontech.com and all 23 Urls showed up for:

"domain:mysite.com" and "domain:www.mysite.com"

was an expensive trip though, just realised 8 of my Urls needed renewing :(



 11:17 pm on Dec 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

I found 1,796 of my pages (1,791 with the adult filter turned on) in PositionTech's search.

I paid to have four spidered by Inktomi at one point, but the other 1,792 got crawled without PFI fees.


 2:59 am on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)

Until the full roll out of Web Search 9 from Inktomi, different partners have different databases, some larger, some smaller. This might account for different numbers.

An Inktomi rep told me that with the new release, all partners will get the same database. Of course, they have many options to tweak. This might also cause a variety of results.


 10:43 am on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)

Jim, does Pure Search only display the paid URLs with the Domain: command?
If so, how is Europefor... getting non-paid ones?
Why aren't our non-paid URLs showing?
Do you have a command similar to Google's Site:?


 5:17 pm on Dec 27, 2002 (gmt 0)

Inktomi & Jim,

limit of two domains is fine with me. But why does it not display the URL pushed with PositionTech and rather (in my case) a simple product page and an Info page?
Why not use the optimized and pushed Home page?



 6:05 pm on Dec 28, 2002 (gmt 0)

I went to hotbot.com and then clicked on advanced search.
(THis used to work great because you would just put your domain name in the domain box and click- however now they also force you to put in a search term into the search box). What I did was put my domain in the search term ie abc.com I also put that in the domain box abc.com . I got all my 67 listings to appear that way. Obviously at that point you can login to positiontech to figure out which you got in for free and which you paid for.

To answer the question on how to know how many pages are really indexed in e.a. msn, inktomi, try this:

Go to msn and then click Advanced Search Options,
in the search box you type a word that is comming back on all your pages, let's say your title.
Then perform a search in just that domain.com
Hopefully that will help some people.
