Thanks for the help!
Here is a request from Inktomi's spider "Slurp" from my logs:
188.8.131.52 - - [27/Feb/2003:01:54:19 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.0" 200 2017 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Slurp/si; email@example.com; http://www.inktomi.com/slurp.html)"
I have several sites which are fully-indexed, and have been since before I was aware of Ink's pay-for-inclusion.
I have the same issue here in that positiontech will list all the page indexed for particular domains yet while I check in MSN using the same domain:www.url method I typically only have 2 results showing.
If positiontech is showing several pages indexed using the domain:www.url method then why wouldn't the same method produce the same results in MSN instead of just showing two pages?
If someone can answer that I'd be a happy camper.
All these sites are spidered frequently by Ink.
Alright.. so then how do we effectively search for ALL our pages indexed in MSN then?
I would think a lot of people are paying for inclusion based on the fact they only see 2 pages indexed when they go hunting on their domain name yet the results have been limited to ONLY show 2 occurances matching the domain name in question.
Seems liek trickery to me, no?
I wish someone from PT would reply back to my continual emails regarding my domain, quick enough to take my money and index the page. But as soon as there is any sign of a problem incommunicado is the best description I have for their services... :(
I apologise for the above mail directing my problem at PT, when in fact I have been mailing the wrong company :(
MOD could you please remove my posts further up regarding this and also accept my apologies.
enter your domain name w/o the .com or whatever in the search box. Enter your domain name - my company.com in the domain box. As fas as I can tell that will show you all pages listed in Ink.
Works great! thanks a ton!
Now we have two ways to check pages indexed in Ink -
2. domain:www.mycompany.com in Positiontech.
What can one derive if the results show significant differance in no. of pages indexed? When I tried out in MSN adv. search more than 1000 pages of my site are indexed and in PositionTech pure search, only 70 pages are indexed. Infact for all the Keywords that I am ranked anywhere within 20 in MSN and PT, all are from these 70 pages. Though I am shown large no.of pages indexed in MSN Advanced Search, for rest of the pages (apart from those 70) I am not ranked at all even when I search for a complete sentence from my pages. Infact in MSN those pages are ranked at the end! In PT no trace of them?
A basic question? Who else has supplied those pages to MSN if not Inktomi? Definitely not Overture, since Overture too has only those pages as in PT.
