I have had a URL in inktomi for over a year now with the URL [example.com,...] instead of [example.com....]
So I decided, well maybe if I bought inclusion for the www, it would replace the old one and my rankings would go up. This was false, it didn't happen. They listed my www.example.com but the other one remained, AND higher ranked above the first one even tho it was PFI.
Here is the other strange thing: Most people link to [example.com....] As a matter of fact it is probably all of my incoming links. So if the [example.com...] has more links to it, and its the exact same site as [example.com,...] why is it that it is ranked lower than the non-www URL. It doesn't make sense to me, I am stumped.
THEN, I had emailed positiontech.com, who emailed inktomi, who came back saying that [example.com...] had a better score. NO DUH! Why in the world would this ever happen? Maybe a penalty on the [example.com...] URL from a long time ago?
For too long now I have relied on Google. I own ONE website, and I feel as if I am being left behind, and Inktomi is holding me back. Any suggestions from the crowd? SOMETHING..ANYTHING would be nice.
