my site appears to be lost in alta vista yahoo and hotbot and ask, now they were all run by Inktomi, now for a long time now i have not apperaed in these searches, possibly due to some kind of ban. G has now straightened out my site and now appears in all the right places and so does msn, what can i do about these other search engines?

Since you are missing out on roughly 37% of searches (according to a comScore study from 2006) it is some concern. What did you do for Google to "straighten" it out? Did it just happen? If it just happened, I'd keep doing good SEO and wait for it to just happen on the other engines as well.

Hi Mike
I played with the structure and also added some content on the home page that the domain name itself was about and of course bought directory links.This seems to have staightend up the ship and filled some holes, now i just need to steer it gently into the harbour.
I have noticed that in yahoo my site shows 9 results, yet in explorer i have noticed 149? what should i do?
