I was just wondering if it is worth paying to be included into Inktomi. I have just launched my website, submitted it to a few search engines but the site is getting no hits as we are waiting for the spiders to come. Should I pay to at least start getting some hits in? If we do pay should we pay for just the index page or the other 'main' pages of the site. I don't really want to do PPC.
Does anyone have any other ideas on how to get hits into a new site while waiting for spiders?
If they are really competitive your listings will be buried under looksmart listings. You may be number 1 for your term but have 2 pages of looksmart above you.
Go to msn and check out your keywords - if they don't have many "directory" sites above the "web pages" then it might be worth it.
Of course if you wait long enough you will get picked up for free.
If you want quick guarenteed traffic I'm not sure what options you have besides PPC.
First thing i would do if i was you is go plan your linking strategy , look for some other posts on here on how to do it.
Its not some very easy to start off with , it takes a reallly long time, so be patient
