Question about ATW

WebmasterWorld Senior Member 10+ Year Member

Hi, I have a quick question about ATW. I did a quick search for my site, but could not find it listed anywhere! Yet, when I do a link:www.myurl.com it comes up with a few dozen sites that link to my site? I was under the impression that once ATW found sites that linked to my site, that ATW would index my site? Am I incorrect in assuming this? Thanks for your answers in advance!

Dave, I would expect ATW to index your site if it is well linked, yes.
The best way to make sure your site is not listed is to simply type in your full root url, www.example.com, which gives you lots of info on the site.

In any case ATW is sometimes a bit erratic with their indexing. It should however not take longer than perhaps three monts at most for the first pages neeing indexed, in my experience.
