Is anybody else experiencing similar?
never nice to hear that, however lets try and crack this.
1, google plays no part in whether inktomi/position tech are going to send you traffic.
2, for which/how many search terms does your site rank (high), and do you know how popular those phrases are?
3, the reason for "2" above is the fact that a lot of places which run Inktomi, also use an Overture or other PPC listing, so even if you are #1 for a competitive keyword, chances are that there could be over 100 PPC listings ahead of you (trust me when I say, I sat at #1 for a real money word for 12 mths on inktomi and got about 2 clicks a day, when OV was bringing in over 500)
hope the above helps make some sense on the matter.
I know there can be flux regarding a sites ranking but having had pretty consistent ranking for almost two years to then go to zero every day for two months seems v. strange.
If I'm getting no visitors is there any point renewing my listing with Ink? - academic really since I renewed 2 weeks ago!
Interestingly a search shows I'm in Inktomi but my pages absolutely do not appear in any searches.
I've given up on Positiontech. I can't recommend them anymore. I was making the switch to Lycos Insite but they may be out of business shortly.
