NBCi's hidden value / who's spidering

 6:54 pm on Dec 14, 2000 (gmt 0)

I've just bumped my competitor (of 5 years) out of the #1 spot on Ixquick and picked up a 5-star rating there because of the listings in NBCi. There's also decidely increased referrals from other metas and SEs -I'm watching hotbot.lycos and MSN in particular.

What SE's are spidering NBCi?

They might be grabbing the Inktomi results off of NBCi. The only time I notice any hits from Ixquick is when I get listed in the Inktomi database.

>might be grabbing the Inktomi results off of NBCi.

Good point. In this case, I might be getting a double effect. I submitted a LiveDirectory page which is currently ranked 4th on the key phrase. I also paid INK to spider this particular page of mine. Perhaps I'll check around on some unique phrases used in NBCi and see who's picked them up.

Based upon other activity I'm seeing on related content pages I submitted, I'm beginning to think the "NBCi effect" may be rather large, but unseen, i.e., webmasters see other referrers and credit them.

FWIW, here's the Ixquick SE matrix on this kw term
Hotbot (2), NBCi (2), MSN (2), Yahoo (5), Infoseek (5)
