Ask - Teoma Forum

Teoma added my site, yet I didn't submit!

 2:37 pm on Mar 20, 2002 (gmt 0)

In last week's report, my site was no-where to be found in Teoma, now it is doing great for highly competitive keywords. Fine by me...one thing bothers me though...how the hell did it get there???? I never once submitted the site, and now it is Pay4Play, I most certainly didn't submit it. How did it get in?

I think Teoma is spidering new sites all the time until they get their database up to the size of their competitors, I have had some sites added too.

Most all of my sites were added since the begining of time in their db. I like their search engine but im not getting any refers from it yet.

Lucky you for getting a free include.

I paid on ask jeeves to have my site submitted and it does come up toward the end of the second page. What is really strange is that the very first site that comes up under "convoluted tubing" has limited text and 1 reference to convoluted tubing in the keywords and the description. And from what I can see, it really isn't a product they sell. It is a major product that we sell, of course, no one would know that if they did a search on Teoma.
Also, on other search engines, I come up in good position under my keyword.

I guess I'm just Teomamazed that we have such poor performance there.

And what's worse, I don't know how to improve it.

Nice quote from The Register article:

Gardi said Teoma's ideal index size will be between 350 million and 500 million pages. "There are not 2 billion useful pages on the web," he said.

They won't get anymore than a fraction of those pages paid for, free listings will be the vast bulk.
