Now if I try to search for one my pages by typing in the URL, in MSN it shows up, but not in Positiontech pure search. Now for some more trials, If I type in a sentence (unique to my site) from one of my pages, the page won't feature in PT, but in MSN it shows up as the last rank. Ranks above my page are same as in PT. When I tried this out with more pages, without fail my pages, which are the only ones to carry the typed sentence, feature as last rank in MSN. Where do these ranks come from, if they are not from Inktomi?
MSN and Inktomi only lists 2 results when searching for your url (www.yoursite.com). Try the following at Pure Search [search.positiontech.com]:
This will list all of the pages indexed by Inktomi.
As far as I can tell, MSN Web Pages are still from Inktomi, as well as Overture's Additional Listings:
"Within Additional Listings, which are provided by Inktomi, there may be links for which the Web site owners have paid for either expedited review of their site and/ or paid for clicks to their site."
Now the point is when I know that certain page is not listed either with Ink or Overture, how is that being shown in MSN? The simplest way I find that out is typing in an entire sentence from a page of my site within quotes. In MSN the page shows up but not in Ink or Overture. If I did that for the pages (out of 2) that are listed with Ink, in all 3 places - MSN, Ink and Overture the page shows up.
