Inktomi Is it worth it?

 9:18 pm on Mar 18, 2003 (gmt 0)

Is it worth submitting to Inktomi and which one should I pay for as there are 3 sumbissions. I was thinking of going for the "MSN" one.

BTW How do I check if im in already?

as far as I was aware, there is only 1 real submission method.

MSN is a major partner with Inktomi, as are a number of PPC engines for their backfill.

which 3 options are you referring to (Trusted Feed etc, or something else)


to check if you are in, go to [search.positiontech.com...] and do a search for

There are 3 submissions here:


Which is best? Also is it per page or per URL?

I always use this to check Ink pages:


per URL = per page, so yes.

Ink is best, Ask a distant second and FAST probably not worth it at all.

Kila M,

You are slightly confused.

Positiontech have 3 options, ONLY 1 applies to MSN, and that is the Inktomi submission.

The Fast and ASK deals are good but will NOT get you into Inktomi or more importantly MSN.

pricing is per page, 1st url = $39,00 , others are $25,00

If your goal is to get into MSN, you don't necessarily need the Inktomi paid inclusion. There is a back-door into MSN and Looksmart.

Have you tried submiting to Zeal.com? I launched my site on March 10, submitted to Zeal the same day and was listed within 24 hours. MSN had my site listed in the #1 spot within 72 hours. Looksmart listed me at #1 the next day. I now have multiple keywords ranked in the top 10 in Zeal, MSN and Looksmart.

You can submit for free to Zeal, but there is a test you have to pass (I'm not kidding). It is not a difficult test, but it might take you a few tries to pass. Check out the Zeal.com website for the guidelines.

This is a legitimate submission method - no tricks.

Good luck!
