Inktomi Database
Submited sites vs Normally Reviewed sites in Inktomi

Hi everybody!

We have some websites which are into the database of Inktomi, but we didn't submited any of them. We were wondering if there any difference between been listed "naturally" or as a submited site. We have very good positions, with important keywords for us, searching into Positiontech, which should offer the results of Inktomi.
It's really necessary to submite a site into Inktomi's database to get listed in good positions?

i have the same question in a respect. I have many sites which are doing great in ink, but i was thinking if i submit directly, will it drop those already good listings, or will it just improve my initial position. From what i have seen, i have takin one site and submitted sub pages. Those pages with specific key words actually do a little better, but the main page, then does not come up for that keyword anymore, rather the sub site startes to be looked for, in essence, losing position on the main page, for a secondary page for a perticualr key word! ...just my observation.

No, but if you want results fast then positiontech is great. Also you get to choose which pages you list, ink sometime lists for free the wrong pages on your site.

As far as I know, paid and free pages rank the same, but paid pages are updated every 48 hours or so.

Correct. There is no ranking benefit applied to PFI sites over free inclusions or the other way round.

The real benefits of PFI (for the advertiser) comes back to getting
a) being included quickly
b) staying included (for your subscription period)
c) being updated regularly
d) submitting deep content that may not otherwise be found.

The issue very much comes back to the advertiser to determine if any of those reasons are compelling enough to pay for inclusion, and if they are going to make their money back on the price of inclusion - ROI.
