A couple Inktomi questions

 6:21 am on Apr 2, 2003 (gmt 0)

It has been mentioned that Ink favors pages that have been in the db longer,...is this a real factor and does anyone have experience regarding this.

Also does anyone have any insight into Ink's kw density sweetspot and what total word count it likes (is there a any indication of a minimum?)

I'm averaging in the Hotbot 30's for my target 2 kw phrases and forward movement has stalled in the past month. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey I have no idea about what KW density is best or if there is a "best". But the first time I submitted pages to inktomi one of them showed up #2 for its keyword - so I doubt that time in the DB has anything to do with ranking.

Besides if that was the case a lot of old crappy site would all be #1

From my experience, age has nothing to do with it whatsoever. If anything, it SEEMS like the opposite is true.

Add some more text; I added a few kwd-rich paragraphs to a page that wasn't doing so well & it helped significantly.

In the past Inktomi had a rather old database, called BOW (Best of the Web), that gave some kind of boost to sites (most rather old) in it. It has been dropped once they started their current spidering of the whole web, see [webmasterworld.com...]
