Pure Inktomi and MSN Search Results

I recently (about 3 weeks ago) submitted my site home page to Inktomi via PositionTech.

When I search on my main key term at MSN, a couple of my inside pages appear under the Web Pages search results -- however my home page does not display. (at least not in the first 150 results)

If I go here: [search.positiontech.com...] and search on my main key term, my site appears in the #4 position.

Can someone tell me how the "Pure" Inktomi results (at the search site url above) relate to the MSN Web Pages search results listings (under Web Pages)? If I have a good ranking on the "Pure" Ink results, will that translate eventually into a good ranking on MSN under the Web Pages category?

It depends on where MSN.com views your website as being located. If in the US, you should come up well in MSN.com, if not - you won't! Unfortunately, it has been getting some site locations wrong. Not as many as a few weeks ago, but still a few!
