Question about submitting to Inktomi

Hi,

I know that a few search engines rely on Inktomi for their results (Hotbot, Anzwers, Yahoo). Does that mean, if you submit your site to, say, Anzwers, it'll automatically appear in Hotbot and Yahoo?

Cheers,

Han.

Sooner or later, yes, probably, if all goes well. But due to their different update cycles most people seem to prefer to submit to all of them in one go. It may sometimes take weeks till it's filtered through all Ink licensees' systems, but you can never *really* be sure which submission will crop up the fastest. (Currently, it tends to be Anzwers, after Canada.com has dropped in favor, even though it's still pretty fast compared to HotBot, but that isn't really saying much these days.)
