Inktomi PFI, a mistake?
Is using inktomi PFI a mistake?

When i began my new website,i have used inktomi PFI to include several of my pages in its database.
Now thats fine,but i have a site of close to a 1000 pages,and despite inktomi bot being all over my site,only my PFI pages are being included in the database...
(on google for example,all of my site is listed and i have a high PR 6).

So what should i do? is there any way to have all of my site included without paying for an inclusion for the entire site? or should i just give up on the traffic?:(

Thanks

"How long ago? :)"

About three months ago,give or take a week:)

Anyhow,the reason I asked this question is because I paid for about 6 PFI urls in order to experiment a bit...
And up until now, whenever I changed the url the older URL would remain in the index,but in the last few days all of my pages except for those in the PFI have been dropped:(

I have had no problems :)

I submitted two url's and one page from each site, I keep swopping them around for other pages on the same site(s) but the ones I exchange are still in the Index?

Every time I swop one, it remains in place :)

This has been happening since March 3rd ish

I have managed to get a few extra pages in this way, or maybe its just a coincidence?

Anyone?

Same situation here. I wish they'd have one price for the whole site, or a maximum number of pages.

Not so for me. When I swap, the old one is removed promptly. I have one site with 3 paid and about 10 free pages, and another site with 2 paid and 1 free. 9 of those 10 free pages showed up as soon as I paid. I wish I knew if it'll pick up more pages from the second site...

Not for me either. When I change the URL, it takes a few days, but the page for the old URL is removed (unless Inktomi has spidered it and included it free since I submitted the original URL).

See this thread for other comments about Inktomi PFI and free spidering.
