Greetings and Gidday from downunder folks,
FYI. Just doing my monthly manual add urls to hotbot.com, lycos.com, lycos.mx, and they are no more, all are showing 404 errors from downunder.
It's not like I was getting a lot of traffic from them anymore, but they still do provide excellent search results, so it was habit and loyalty more than anything else.
Searching for site submit leads to their new Insite service. Oh well ... another one and another one bites the dust.
Interestingly however, the European equivalents are still accepting submissions at their addurls.
<rant> I wouldn't object to PFI so much if it was more equitable and customisable. I mean really ... who, apart from the news feeds, spammers and businesses desperate to get into the index yesterday, NEEDS to have their urls reindexed every 48 hours for a year!? (How much bandwidth is this activity sucking up? Don't let me ever hear anyone whinge about lack of bandwidth again)</rant>
Go mattdwells and gigabite! [webmasterworld.com...]
Regards and Hooroo
