Pay for another year?

Once well ranked, paid inclusion no longer needed



5:26 am on Oct 1, 2003 (gmt 0)


I paid to have a site included in Inktomi, Lycos and the search engines they trickle down to. The paid inclusion gaurantee lasts one year.

If I achieve good rankings for this site, is it necessary to renew after one year? Or does your rank more or less "stick" once you reintegrate into the non-paid pool?

I'm a newbie, and any thoughts on the issue or experiences to share would be enormously appreciated.

When you drop the paid listings your site may drop from the index until it's re-indexed by the free spiders.. Depending on the amount of traffic/business your getting from Ink, it may or may not be worth renewing..

I also did the 29 dollar inclution but then did the PPC. Once my PPC money runs out will it affect my non-PPC rankings. I ranked very well in MSN and I am hoping that i don't have to put more money into looksmart.
