We have a small client who is doing exceptionally well in Google and has good rankings in every other search engine, but has no rankings in MSN or Hotbot. We were tracking pretty competitive terms so we figured we were getting knocked down by all the looksmart listings. The homepage was submitted via paid inclusion and appeared to be getting hits, mostly for the domain name. But upon futher investigation today I noticed that those searches were leading people to the wrong page which doesnt even exist. I contacted positiontech to ask about this and am still waiting for an answer. However I did some further searches on MSN and Hotbot and can't find the site anywhere, even when I search on 5 or 6 word phrases. So I am wondering if the site somehow got penalized for something that happened before we got on the scene and if there is anything we can do about it.
Amazingly, the site gets 20K uniques a month on Google after being out of INK for a year!
The thing is, spam seems to rule at INK which is not good since Yahoo! will be converting soon. They really need to clean up and get a stronger algo in place.
