I have a site that's been banned by INK I guess b/c it was too simialr to another one of my sites. I totally revamped the banned site in hopes of it getting relisted.

Is there a contact email at INK? How do I ask to be reinstated?

Thanks!

Not unless it is a pfi page. Once you are gone in Ink, it takes a long long time to come back.

Thanks Brett.

The site appeared to be banned and I thought it was b/c I let the PFI expire. So I renewed the PFI and it was listed again. Three days later it was gone again.

Why?

Have you tried searching for URL on ink? If you've paid for a page I can't see how ink wouldn't list the page, they can't take your money then not list the site

Yes the page is still listed, but nowhere to be found in search results.

I got excited when I did the PFI inclusion for this site again b/c it was listed great for my terms. But after several days, the site fell off the radar. I gave up searching for it in results.

Don't ever pay for PFI with INKTOMI.

They will place your site on # 547.876 after some weeks.
I heard they penalize 99% of all PFI customers after they paid for inclusion.

They just want your money.

I don't agree I paid for a load of pages, but let them lapse when the price went up, those pages are now ranking quite well and I get 16% of my traffic from MSN all free

Yeah, I don't agree with 99% penalty b/c other sites I submitted at the same time do quite well.
