Hi

Theres a thread that Brett started ages ago showing how to get high rankings on Google. eg - Title = 5%, KW = 10% etc etc

So now that I've got Google sorted, (for now!).....

....is there a similar thread anywhere for AltaVista (UK) & Teoma?

Thanks in advance

Havne't seen anything like that...my best advice would be to start with the Pay For Inclusion Engine forum [webmasterworld.com] which has all that stuff about Altavista you can handle. :)

And then, I would mosey on over to the Ask Jeeves / Teoma forum [webmasterworld.com] to read up on Teoma's algorithm.

Cheers.

For now and for the forseeable future I wouldn't waste any time on AV. We put over 1500 pages in one of their inclusion programs and rarely see more than 10 referrals per day (no didn't pay the $78.00/page/year).

Teoma is slightly better and IMO they have a future unlike AV.

Interesting skibum.

I was taking the view that as Overture has just bought them, any PFI sites would likely do well if & when they integrated all their indexes?

Are your 1,500 pages appearing highly in the SERPs? I'm doing ok on most of the SEs, but AV bugs me. I've done PFI on AV and my pages only started coming no. 1 after 3-4 months of not touching them. Bizarre....

Any clues on how to improve this situation would be most welcome!

Assuming you are well optimized for Google you should also do well in those 2. AskJeeves uses the same Teoma database. ask.com seems to see more action than the moribund Altavista.
