Well it's confirmed.

Since Yahoo dropped Google in favor of Inktomi, we've lost 33% of our traffic and not surprisingly, 33% of our revenues.

Guess I've got to learn how to get good positioning in Yahoo/Inktomi.

I'm already a subscriber to Planet Ocean Communications newsletter and have their e-book.

Is there a source of high-power information that I can use to fix my Inktomi postitioning problems fast?

BTW, we tried paid inclusion via PositionTech and the results were very disappointing. They did indeed only crawl the pages we paid for, and not the rest of the site (ever), and the amount of clicks we get is laughable.

Thanks.

Would you please tell me some skills, for example, how to promote my site.

Same thing here.
I've paid positiontech for inclusion in Inktomi, Fast and AskJeevs :(
That was ~ 1 month ago.

Results? NONE!
Ask Jeeves has only visited once my index after 2 weeks. Since then.. nothing!

I have a 17 000 pages software site with 100 000 unique visitors/day.

Positiontech is a scam; The Inktomy search bot is all over my site since december, but no results "and the amount of clicks we get is laughable. " :(

We tried Position Tech 6 months ago and submitted only our home page. The results were terrible. Our pages where nowhere to be found. However 1 month ago we decided to submit more of our subcategory pages. This made a huge difference. Along with the twenty pages that were submitted to Position Tech most of our additional pages have been indexed. We now rank very well in MSN. On Yahoo our SERPs are okay. Still working on that.

You could try using a looping banner - place it in your webpage somewhere and type in all the major keyphrases and keywords you would want to be found under - the coding is below for you. I have found this an amazing way to get excellent rankings as it is not java or graphical and the search engines seem to love it. Also you can put links into the banners to other pages or sites etc to increase relevancy. Give it a try I don't think you will be disappointed.

<table width="760" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="4" align="center">
<tr>
<td><marquee loop="infinite" width="760">
<p><font size="2" color="#666666" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Widgets for the home, Widgets for the car, Widgets for fun, Widgets for mum, widgets for a friend, widgets for gran, widgets for dad, widgets for school, widgets for conferences, widgets for industry, widgets for cars, widgets for hotels, widgets for leisure, widgets for colleges, widgets for universities ...... </p>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

I hope this helps - you can change the font colour size and the loop box area - any problems post back and I will give you a hand.

Let's clear something up. PositionTech is not a scam. They provide a service...a connection to the INK PFI database, as well as others, and nothing more.

It is up to <b>YOU</b> to choose the right pages to submit through PositionTech, and it is up to <b>YOU</b> to optimize those pages to rank well in Inktomi.

You might want to use search.positiontech.com and see how your site is ranking against the other Inktomi submissions and modify your site according.
