Lycos Insite has stopped express inclusion.

Any other places which offer express inclusion?

Many of those previously offering PFI inclusion have now moved away from this type of revenue model, notably Teoma(Ask Jeeves) and Inktomi.

Overture still offer a semi-PFI model, which also includes pay per click pricing, hence isn't strictly PFI!

Mirago do conventional PFI, as do a number of smaller engines. The underlying question for me though, was always whether I'd see a return on the investment.

Rich thanks for the reply.

Some clients can be very demanding and want quick results.

I spotted Mirago which looks ok as it also covers Dogpile.co.uk which is ok.

What other small engines are there which do PFI please?

I can give clients early small results to keep them happy while they wait for MSN, Yahoo and Google!

If you're looking for quick results, consider the PPC model.

Entireweb springs to mind for PFI, but bear in mind that the majority of search engine traffic will come from a very small number of search engines, particularly Google, MSN, Yahoo and Teoma/Ask. This being the case, is it necessarily worth investing cash into PFI on other engines, when the traffic you'll receive from them will be little, or none?

If you're after a quick turnaround, consider the PPC options from Overture and Google, which should aid in driving targetted traffic to the site(s) in question.

thanks guys. My clients dont want PPC.

I will give Mirago a shot. It is really just to shut demanding clients up. I recognise that the worthwile engines take longer.

Exactseek (not great) appear to offer 24 hour inclusion for free!

Educate your customer. I came across someone the other day who thought AV was still a major SE.

It is just a couple of databases these days and for quick results ppc is a must and if you are an ecommerce site consider joining one of the major affiliate networks.
Also, if you can, get onto DMOZ. It can be a real drag getting on but it will be worth the wait.
