I am going to do a complete overhaul of a site. "Most" of the pages have been indexed by INK. What about after the new site is published? WIll I still get a consistent crawl? ANd is it mostly a matter of luck of having been in the index before the emphasis on Paid Inclusion?
Also, does anyone have any experience as to what happens after your year of PI is up? Just dont get refreshed?
Thanks as always for any insight.

I don't know about the first question, kw, but I'd guess that after the year of PI is up that slurp will still drop by. I never bothered to submit to Ink and 3 months after the site went up it just suddenly showed up there, just like Teoma did a little while later, (was already in DMOZ and Google directory). Slurp hits about 5 - 10 of the 80 or so pages most days, seems to get them all eventually. I figure if you're in you stay there. I'm mostly guessing on this though.

I find it odd that I killed with Google and yet Ink gives me one page. Seems to lend credence to dont pay and wait. WHy else would they just do my one page and I have soem good links and building more all the time. And I KNOW they are crawling som eof those linked pages.
