Thanks for your quick response!
I have researched a bit regarding inktomi and was leaning in that direction. My only concern is that I have seen mention of ink's current problems with dynamic pages.
So, this has confused me as to whether now is a good time to submit 500+ dynamic pages to ink.
Thanks again for your help.
I personally have delayed any more paid inclusion. It does appear that a large number of my PFI pages have suffered rankings drops recently while pages with "natural" inclusion are unchanged. I have utilized Ink PFI for dynamic pages with great success in the past, but lately that has drastically changed and my free stuff is performing much better.
Just my $0.02, but I plan on resuming PFI in the future if the effects I am seeing change. Every day when I look at another web site's MSN rankings I can tell immediately which ones I have Paid Inclusion (rankings drop), and which ones are in for free (rankings stable).
Oh, and welcome to WW! :)
I concur with both kanetrain and PaidToPlay, Inktomi is very unstable at present.
I have $1000's of dollars worth of pages that are no longer appearing in the index. Historical click through data is missing, and regular indexing can at times be erratic.
I have moved the last of my advertising budget away from Yahoo/Inktomi. It was once a very good paid product, however I believe that is no longer the case.
You are going to submit 500+ dynamic pages to ink? Just consider if you can afford to write that investment off.
Thanks for the input, it is definitely helping my decision. I believe I will wait to submit, may just test a few to learn ink's paid inclusion program. But, until I hear otherwise, I will hold off and maybe spend the money elsewhere.
Thanks for all your prompt and honest responses!
I like this board!
