Could you describe the template you've been using? Many thanks.
There have been rumors that AV is tracking IP's, but about a month ago, I submitted close to 3k pages from 25 very unique ips (125 pages each). I know other folks who are doing the same - no problem.
What keeps popping up in conversations with people that I've talked too that are banned, is the mass majority have pages that are updated very frequently. Either from dynamically generated pages, pages that they manually update daily, or servers that return todays date for the file on any head check. Almost all cgi/asp pages return todays date in a head check. (every page on this system returns todays date because of ssi includes).
I am wondering if AV is classifiying those pages as 'unmaintainable' by their system. Every time the spider comes back to do a link check, it is finding the page updated and feeling that it is an unstable or unmaintainable page. The risk to alta being stale pages in the index and/or bait and switch.
I have a problem with that because so many servers return bogus file dates. Northern Light claimed a year ago that 30% of the file dates on the web were out of whack with reality. Some were dated in the 70's and some in the 2010's. There is also all those pages that run dynamic advertising. Almost all the mega sites have some sort of dynamic advertising that changes the page from day to day or hour to hour. Even if Alta is just comparing file sizes, that woud still be a problem for those with on-the-fly promo's or headlines.
Just about everyone I've checked that has been banned has either a frequently updated page, or a file date that always says today on a 'head' check to pull the document info.
