Has anyone else noticed increased Excite activity?

 2:57 am on Aug 20, 2001 (gmt 0)

I never used to bother checking, and wasn't even diligent with submission, since they never appeared to update. But then, I started to see some traffic, checked, and they've updated for sure. Also, the placements on my pages are not that far off from Google's - a few spots lower, but with more results returned for the search terms.

I saw continuous spidering activity last month, and while not as much this month, it's been going on for the past few days.

Since I hadn't watched much I can't be sure, but it seems like they've updated twice this year, including last month some time. Could there be another upate coming?

I haven't noticed an update from Excite for nearly 2 months now. Sorry.

I watch them out of the corner of my eye, only pay serious attention when the I'm bored with the other SEs. :)

I haven't tracked spidering at all, I'm convinced reindexing is done every 3 months. It's been pretty consistent for 18 months or more. I unexpectedly got a top 10 about 18 months back and the traffic it generated surprised me. Been kinda watching and taking my Excite SEO efforts more seriously since.

Spidered one site I'm watching, but only the robots.txt...perhaps I should cloak that next time for Excite? :) Other than that, I pretty much ignore them...they have a captive audience, but how long before the lure of google, and the fact that they can change their home page, starts dawning on all of their users?

I don't check Excite often. I checked today and placement for certain keywords has improved. However, I cannot detect an increase in referrals. Would be nice to know the date of the update.
