I don't understand this. My site has been in Inktomi for well over a year now and it is visited quite regularly. I've changed the address of some pages and put up a permanent redirect from their old location. This is working for all browsers and spiders.

BUT, for some reason, only the old address (and content) is showing up in Inktomi/MSN and not the new address, while the change took change over 6 months ago. All the other search-engines seem to have no problems, except Inktomi/MSN.

How do I get pages updated in MSN/Inktomi? And why isn't Inktomi/MSN seeing and updating my changes?

Inktomi isn't handling 301 redirects like it should. For me, it's been listing the new content with the old URLs. I was thinking about writing them an email - I wonder if it'll do any good?

Same for me as well. I have two different domains for one same site, one a working url and other a 301 redirect to the actual domain.

Yet, Ink has the other url and not the original one. Also, the site has been online since around 2 years, but ink has only around 10% of its content. All original content, so I don't know whats happening.
