Got kicked out of Inktomi

Was told too many links on the page

My homepage has thousands of links to my welcome HTML pages with each of them catering to a certain keyword. Iktomi just kicked me out even though I paid for the inclusion. I was told it was because I have too many links there. But I had many other homepages like that listed and they are still in Iktomi! How come and what can I do to get back ( I can't remove the links as I need them to be spidered by Google for my HTML pages to be listed )?

Have you read Inktomi's paid inclusion faq page? That's a good place to start. Inktomi tries to maintain a high quality index, much like a directory, and they set quality standards for this. Their paid inclusion faq page is a good place to start.

Yes, but how come my other sites with just as many links are still included and have been for many months?

Because they haven't found them yet. It's just a matter of time. They're very diligent about that kind of thing, but it's a big index.

So, what are the ways around it? I mean I want to cater to a lot of keywords, but I can't pay $25 for each page that I have for each keyword combination.

If one page doesn't return at least $25 of income for one year you may want to reconsider your business strategy or work with Inktomi to fashion a webpage that is acceptable to them.

You said you have thousands of links on your homepage. Google recommends 100 or less. Is Googlebot actually spidering all those links?

Thousands?

Out of about 30,000 pages that I have - Google listed about 15,000 of them.

Another site that I have has about 20,000 HTML entry pages and Google has sucked in about 12,000 of them. I have Google suck it in in stages. I list about 100 dummie pages on the front page and then when those are sucked in - I link each of them to 100 of the HTML pages.

What will happen if I get de-leasted from Google? Is there a way back there?

IMHO, you seem to be playing with fire.

This type of linking almost always will get you booted...

Ink gives you their 48 hour PFI updates to learn how to tweak a page to rank well, and once you've figured it out, they give you the boot and keep your money. That's all I've learned about working with Inktomi. Did I miss something? Is there someone at Inktomi willing to work with webmasters?

I don't mean any disrespect, but... are you telling me that you are Little Bo Peep?

Actually, I think the one about Little Red Riding hood is more fitting.

You realise that the PFI is for the particular page you paid for only? Just cause you paid for one, it doesn't mean that it will then spider all the other pages linking off it.

That's a good point that was left unsaid. True.

However, sitemaps do quite well in Inktomi. I keep them to the 100 link range.

Yes, I understand that, but I want to keep those links there for Google to spider. Also, if I have those links Inktomi bring up that page for some keywords that are part of those link names. Makes sense?

My site is a online store with over 20,000 items. How can I have Inktomi see all those items without spendin 20,000 x $25?
