I put a couple pages into the AltaVista PPI with pages that do well with Ink. I barely find my site on terms that give me first page results with Ink. I am glad AltaVista is not that much of a factor because I would be working at MacDonalds if I had to rely on their rankings. Does AltaVista put a lot of weight on PR as my site is new and has none. Anyone understand the AltaVista spider?

No secret trick, it's mostly just good on-page optimization.. Although link pop does play a role it's not nearly as big of factor as it is with google...

You might want to try submitting some other pages where you can play around with densities without messing with your Ink listings.. (although with AV's usage it may not be worth the $$)
