What is Up with My site at AV?

Only ONE page?

Hi:

Just checking around on some of my results at various SE, and I was playing at AV. Never got too much traffic from them, so I don't spend a lot of time there...

Anyway, in the SERPS, you get:

Page Title
Page Description...
www.URL.com Refreshed in past 48 hours Related Pages
More pages from www.URL.com

Only not my page! I get the Related Pages, but no Refreshed in past 48 hours or More Pages From XXXX! My site has easily a hundred thousand pages... over 40000 are in Google! (I just checked- Yahoo: 1 - 20 of about 14,600 total results)

I do not study AV, don't know much about it at all. So I do not know if this is some everflux sort of thing, or am I penalized (I do NOT spam keywords or anything... the site is VERY clean).

Is there an AV guy in the house?

Hi:

I e-mailed AV tech support... got a kind of non-commital reply. Good news, the site is not in any way banned. But I still would like to see more than just the index page in the SERPS...

I wouldn't worry too much about AV until Overture gets everything sorted out (They don't get much traffic, and I think were going to see some big changes at AV in the next year).

In the meantime, if you really want to be included, you could try submitting your subpages to the free submit or check out their trusted feed. (I'd probably stay away from the paid submit)

Seth:

Thanks for that- I feel a bit better! Sorry for the e-mail post- my bad!

What is the "Trusted Feed?"

Trusted Feeds allows you to include 500+ urls in the index on a flat CPC basis (which will probably be a much better deal for you than the paid submit). With Trusted Feed you give them your content through an xml feed and can optimize the feed without changing the actual content of your site (aka legal cloaking)...

Interesting thread. Anyone else having problems?

My client has gone from top of the SERPs on AV to disappeared - completely. Searching for host:client.com or url:client.com or the name of his business yields NO pages from his site.

Last I checked rankings was about one month ago. So, we've disappeared in the last month.

Irony is that a new, clean site was launched mid-March. This was the site high in the rankings. (The old site had been banned in google and FAST and is still penalized in inktomi.)

Is this similar to the google everflux phenomenon? Or is something weird going on over at AV? Anybody know?

Seth:

Thanks for the link- I will look into it.

I was stickeyed by another member- same thing with them... weird at AV!

In the past AV would rotate two databases. Sometimes sites were in one and not in the other, so about every two weeks sites would disappear from AV only to reappear in approx. half a month.

Eventually both DB's will pick you up but it can take awhile.

I would not do anything drastic but monitor it weekly and see if your site comes back in a couple of weeks.

Thanks Brad. Still- would be very weird... my site is VERY well established- been around since 1998 or longer.
