Hi,

In your opinion which drives the most traffic? I have a client who only wants to do one PFI to test the waters. Not sure which would give better results in traffic quantity.

TIA,

Brian

Inktomi - by far the largest traffic provider.

That is what I was thinking.

I was also thinking that with MSN that Ink would feed them so a double win?

Also what bot name should I look for in my logs?

Just an update.

I was reading through all the Inktomi threads and thought I would post back on this to report what I expierenced.

I went ahead and went for Inktomi only on the day that I started this thread. I downloaded my log files today and it seems that the spider has visited. It did a pretty full crawl. Now to wait and see what results come from it.

Reflect,

I tried Ink PFI and received good results, if your pages are setup correct you will have success as well.
