Hello everyone,

Does anybody have a number of days once a new url has been spidered, to be seen in msn and other ink serps?

Thanks

I have never tried paid inclusion and it is a long time ago that I last checked the time between spidering and free inclusion. It took several weeks, but it is quite possible that Inktomi have speeded up since then. Other members ought to know.

I dont know about paid inclusion. The sites i maintain have all been included with 6 weeks of spidering. Some have only taken a week lately. I even had one site small site get all pages listed in ink within 5 days, it had no links to it and i never submit any of my sites through pfi or free sumbission.
good luck and best wishes

My experience is that they'll index and keep you in their serps for a month then drop you. Think of it as a one month free trial.

It takes a long time to start showing up again if you don't PFI. You can always wait or you can speed it up by PFI'ing.

"you can speed it up by PFI'ing." if you pay, will they just spider your index page and be gone or is there hope that they will index the whole site(at some point)?

I don't see any hope. If you can't pay for all your pages then pfi for your best Ink optimized pages. Over time (year, maybe?) the rest will eventually be included.

And remember, you get 30 days to switch out pages. If one page doesn't perform well, you can swap it with another one.
