According to this service being sold to Freeserve's Clearly Business customers we've all been wasting our time on SEO activities and worrying about submission. Check the details at [clearlybusiness.com...] especially the FAQ section. According to them we need to 'advertise' our links on the SEs by using their services (check the 'demo'), use a few keywords (not too many - Yahoo only uses 3!!!!) and hey presto we should appear in Hotbot with 24 hours and Webcrawler in 4 days - and with good positions. What have we been doing wrong! Should we all sign up now? Is this the UK paid way into Inktomi? Or are we going to get another load of people getting on the web who are going to get totally fed-up with "web site promotion" experts!
And when we've submitted to their (at least) 400 search engines, we can then sit back and watch explosive results:
"Yahoo! takes approximately 60 - 90 days Altavista takes a few days Webcrawler takes approximately 4 - 45 days Infoseek takes approximately 15 - 60 days Excite takes approximately 2 - 15 days MSN takes approximately 5 - 25 days HotBot takes approximately 24 hours for inclusion Many others use spiders that will check your site and list it quickly
Did we forget anything? "
... like the fact that Yahoo is not a search engine ;)
