Greetings from the Captain.
This is my first post. I have read much information regarding Paid for Inclusion. I have two SEO's preaching an opposite message and I was hoping someone could help clarify what is right... Will Inktomi stop spidering pages they already spider... if I start paying for other pages to be included?
I really appreciate your help. This is really bothering me.
"Inktomi" is an American-Indian word, which means "spider". Inktomi itself has a spider called "slurp". Slurp doesn't do anything with any site, until you submit to them. Once you submit, you will get on "Slurp"'s schedule :)
Inktomi works on page by page model. It means, you submit home page, slurp will spider home page only. That's why Inktomi offers submitting of more pages with the same URL.
So, don't believe everything you hear :)))
SEO 2's Response:
"Slurp doesn't do anything with any site, until you submit to them" -is complete and utter nonsense.
Slurp crawls the web and finds sites through links, just like Google does. Right now they are fighting for their life and trying to build their up their database again, so they are crawling aggressively and adding sites.
There is a LOT of documented evidence to support what i am saying, and i have seen it happen many times with my own eyes. For instance, every one of my pages are in there, and i haven't paid them a dime in two years. That did not happen until i STOPPED paying them. When my Inktomi account was active i only one page in there that i paid for.
Be careful. A lot of these "search engine experts" give advice, but they are like the blind leading the blind.
So which advice should I take? Does Inktomi stop spidering your site once you submit for Paid for Inclusion?
