How many pages can I submit to Excite per day before they declare spam?
Also, has Excite been indexing pages? I have one really old page indexed from about a year ago and can't get anything new in. I've been submitting regularly for the past 6 weeks. I don't remember how many at a time but possibly it was too many.
Meta, one of the criteria appears to be where you host (geographically that is)
As a rule of thumb, we host our clients sites in the states and canada. Always struggled to get sites hosted locally(africa) into Excite's database. Spiders struggle to get across the trans-atlantic link.
I have been trying to get my site listed with them since June 15th. I don't kow how long it takes and I guess no one else does either. Should I keep submitting my url everyday. Does that hurt? I don't want to get banded from being listed with them.
Architext Excite's spider has crawled everything on my sites (and all links) this weekend for the first time since March! I have been submitting main URLs only on a monthly basis and relied on site maps to do the job of picking up all other pages.
IMHO resubmitting daily is not a good idea to any SE but bi-weekly or monthly if not listed is OK.
As for not appearing yet - I'd practically given up on Excite doing anything again - but 5 months later Architext has gobbled the lot. Now how long to be indexed?
