Is this just weekend maintenance again?
I am sure ELATED that Google took over Yahoo as we have had
none of these problems in Yahoo since Google took over. Same
page position each time and all pages are locked in (knock on wood?).
Anyone have any new Ink info?
We have a site that's subject to those weekend house cleanings INK does and it's still up. I've seen a couple of postings in other forums about dropping pages yesterday and today though so you're not alone. It may be just part of the database they're working on.

Not idea of having fun, having to check most day's now the rankings with imktomi, I think watching paint dry seems more like fun.
I don't think it's down to traffic, as my own site was getting a lot of hit's from imktomi SE's, which has vanished into cyber haven along with about half of my other clients sites.
just sitting here again checking and re-submitting and something I was wondering if a site has been dropped, but ranked well in the past and assuming the algo's haven't change should we just re-submit the same page ? or maybe change it around a bit, any ideas ?
have fun in the sun, unfortunately here in damp england I'm still mopping up after the storm we had last night

That's what I've done in the past for high-ranking high traffic pages. They usually then pick them up and list them but with the date of first submission. If it is a home page I do usually change it a little bit - because Inktomi appears to like freshness in sites. Sometimes it moves me up a couple of places but nothing too dramatic. This will be the 6th time I've submitted these pages with little or no change in about 8 weeks. See what happens. What a month! AltaVista all changed (again yesterday), Google update and Inktomi - why don't they go on holiday!!
Where have you been submitting? Is it by hand? If not, what submission software? Can you tell if you have been visited by INK's J6000 or any of the other INK retrievers?
And, can you share the "trick". There's a handful of people I know who are having the same problem. (Jilly, any of your stuff take yet)
Just guessing, but there must be some common thread for the sites not getting in...
Are you using dumptruck? The url for anzwers add url has been changed and it won't go through to from what I can see. (See other post in this forum). IF you want to share the trick that would be great. I got 5 in today that I submitted a few days ago but I'm not sure which portal was the ticket.
The trick is to make the domain appear as an ISP with a virtual ip address. This is a last resort of a scoundrel!
I know what a scoundrel is, just not the first sentence.
How do you do that (in non-techie language)?
In terms of my own observations: I had 60 pages each on 2 different freebie accts at freeservers and now neither of these
are getting indexed. I uploaded 10 of those pages to a different domain and they are in now (I did 5 at a time). One thing I have noticed is that if my pages aren't picked up by anzwers after 4 days they won't be unless I submit them again. Also, I never get any pages indexed by anzwers that I submit on Fridays .
Nope not one of those pages we've been messing with has made it in, and the ones that I am doing on my own haven't made it either. :( I've never had trouble getting pages picked up by Ink before and I'm not sure what's going on now.
I think I told you that those same pages got picked up by Google already. Figures, huh? Oh - I haven't seen the j6000 spidey either.
I'm Jilla, so let's confuse everyone. I submitted 5 pages with a hyphen in domain name on Wednesday that were indexed. In this same domain I also submitted pages two Sundays ago that were indexed on Thursday. I don't think that's the problem. Here is what my records show.
1) Two Sunday's ago the domain with the hyphen was indexed,
a second one with a hyphen also was indexed and a 3rd one was not indexed.
2) Monday I submitted 8 pages from a hyphenated domain that were indexed.
3)I submitted a few domains on Tuesday and none were indexed.
4)Wednesday just submitted one domain with hyphen and it was indexed. I submitted 2 free hosts that were not indexed and a paid domain that was not indexed (about 4 pages per domain).
5)Have not gotten anything in from Thursday on.
I have no conclusions to draw from this at all except total arbitrariness. I was wondering if having external links might be a factor but it doesn't seem to be since some were new doorways.
Does anyone see an underlying logic here?
