I have seen titles and descriptions updated in a matter of days over the past couple of weeks. As a matter of fact, I changed a title last week and it was updated 2 days later. I have yet to see anything new added in quite sometime. Are folks here still actively doing work for this engine or has everyone given up? Out of all the engines out there at this time, Excite seems next to impossible to grasp.
"Excite seems next to impossible to grasp" Most of excite's spidering seems to be of sites that are already included in their index. You might want to try adding hidden links to pages that are all ready indexed, or if that's not possible, try exchanging links with someone that's in their database.
