Once Scooter gets you, how long is it before you get listed?

Once Scooter craws your site, how long is it before the listings show up in Altavista? Does it also add you to Inktomi or any other search engine?

It can take several months to get included in AV. This is based on past experience. You might get in faster if Scooter finds more inbound links. Can't hurt.
Scooter does not add you to any other engine other than AV and portals using AV results.

possibly forever. Scooter was the number one browser at one of my sites for a few months last year. It pulled tens of thousands of pages. (this is on a site with between 20 and 50 static HTML pages). I finally just banned it. I don't think I ever got one visitor from altavista, and I never found that site listed there.
