In mid January we decided to not renew our Inktomi listing with Network Solutions because their site was almost useless, no way to check anything. So we let it die and about 2 weeks later signed up our index page and about 12 others with positiontech.
We have never, appeared in Inktomi, we certainly are not appearing in Yahoo and doing a search through Yahoo or Hotbot for our URL returns nothing...
Are we being penalized? If so, I am going to contact our credit card company and reverse the charges as a service not rendered. I am sure that would ban me forever from Inktomi, but it appears we already are. So at least I'll get my $$ back.
BTW, Netsol is no longer offering this service and now refers people to positiontech. Here is a snippet of the email I rec'd :
<Sorry, no email quotes of any kind - see Terms of Service [webmasterworld.com]>
Any thoughts on my being banned?
