|Am I missing something here with Inktomi?|
Lots of crawled pages...hardly any in index
Please share your thoughts on this:
I recently saw Inktomi come in and crawl my site--it got through around 3,000 pages before going away.
A couple weeks later (Apr 10 or so) I get a few result pages back through Hotbot...but by a little bit of testing there were only 13 pages or so included in the index.
Why would Ink crawl so much and not include in the index? Or is there a bigger update of the index to come?
Wow...I guess a lot of people are concerned with Inktomi, since I haven't got a reply yet.
Long live Google!
I dont know too much about the Ink algo, however have you tried searching at:
[search.positiontech.com...] using the following command:
that should show up some interesting results.
Yep, interesting results all right.
13 Pages :)
After Ink crawled over 3,000.
That's just boneheaded. What a waste of my bandwidth. This keeps up and I'm going to ban those buggers.

Not sure that is a good idea, they may well include you at some stage. Yes, Google Rules!, but Ink (through MSN) still provides about 10% of my SE referrals.
I have not read anything about how they decide which free pages to include, but they currently have all of my small site in their database.
By "keeps up" I mean 2-3 months :)
I'm going to watch and keep track of how many pages they include in the index. As I write, Ink's in my site indexing *again* and is up to 2,500 pages or so *again*.
If these pages don't make it into their index within the aforementionned time period they're history.
