no results on .uk.com

I have paid to get indexed by Inktomi. All i have gained is got indexed and no matter how hard i work, can't get any search results.

I just noticed that although Inktomi takes your money to get your .uk.com site indexed but no site's ending with .uk.com is in the results at all.

My .uk domain shows in the top #5 for UK searches and in the top #10 for Worldwide searches. For me, paid Inktomi inclusion has proved to be good value.

Hi again,

Let me get this clear.

The .uk.com domains paid for shows up as listed or indexed but no .uk.com domains come up in the search results.

It's not just mine, but none at all.

Try searching for anything on Inktomi and have a look at the domain names. Results - NO .UK.COM domain results.

Just checked [hotbot.lycos.co.uk...] and my Inktomi listed .uk site is right there in #2 spot. Where have you been searching to check your site?

I am saying .UK.COM not .UK

.UK.COM domains are listed in the index and are returned in the search results. As there are so relatively few .UK.COM domains though (as opposed to the millions of others such as .COM, .CO.UK, etc.) they will appear very infrequently in the search results.

Searching for cycling federation (on any major search engine, not just those powered by Inktomi) will return results which include a relevant .UK.COM domain. As mentioned though - as there are so few of these domains, they won't appear in the results that often. If you're not receiving what you would deem to be a reasonable amount of traffic through this domain, it may be that making changes to the site could improve your ranking and hence improve your traffic.

Remember too that if the search engine you're using performs regional filtering by domain extension, rather than IP range, your .UK.COM domain will most likely be excluded.
