There hasn't been a recent DH update of any magnitude. DH usually updates around the 20th of each month, (usually the Monday that follows the closest to the 20th, which would be the 21st this month).. DH missed a cycle, so we're awaiting a nice update this go around....

But are you getting any appreciable referrals out of DH other than Hotbot?

Pete, I apologize, you are correct!! There has been some kind of update at DH, but it's like nothing I've ever seen before...

Usually DH updates their index, then the portal partners(HB,MSN,ASK) update afterwards...

I am seeing new referrers from HB and AskJeeves but not MSN or DH directly. Checked rankings, and the listings are in HB, but not DH? What is really strange is that AskJeeves (ASK) and DH are one in the same now..

Brett, good referrers from ASK....

Redzone- So do you think submitting through DH is the best way in INK? Or is it better to submit to Anzwers and Canada?

Kamikaze,
DH is not a way into Ink. I think the spread got started because DH and Ink. are partnered with many of the same portals, and DH doesn't have their own forum...

Yep - should probably have posted this in the directory forum.

RZ - interesting to here that you are getting good referrals from ASK. Obviously have top 3 placement.

Pete,
We landed some #1's on less competitive phrases, nice way though to start w/ initial index. And for the rest, we either landed at #2, or #10......
I can't believe we ignorantly haven't submitted for the past 60 days, as all new clients will be "who know's when", to get them indexed....
