I submitted my sites homepage a few weeks ago to Inktomi through Positiontech.

The thing is when I search for my full URL I can only see two minor internal pages (contact us and about us I think). My homepage however does get returned in the search results for certain keyword phrases, but it is way way down 150+ . Has anybody had a similar experience and could anybody shed any light on this at all, is my homepage not fully indexed yet etc..?

Also my Positiontech admin area URL listing display tells me that my sites are being refreshed every 48 hours or so but in the pure search results some of the dates next to my listings are form December 2003 or before. Can anybody please shed any light on this also?

That's how it works. Don't worry about the two URL part. They onyl show two for a site: search.

Go to MSN, use advanced search, restrict the search to your domain halfway down the page then in the search box enter:


That should get you the pages indexed.

As for rankings, good luck.
