Ok, newb here.

I have a listing in looksmart. Due to this reason, inktomi will refresh my site every 1-2 days.

Base on MSN and HotBot results, inktomi list my site using the title submited to looksmart instead of the title in the HTML file. But they use the meta description as descrition instead of description from looksmart.

Ranking is very poor and consider invisible even my site rank very high in google.

What will happen if I pay Inktomi to crawl this page?
i. the title
ii. the ranking

title will come from the page. Ranking can't get much worse can it?
