I can confirm that everyone who submitted at PrioritySubmit.com into Inktomi up until the 1st has been put through, and I don't expect it should be any different elsewhere.
I submitted my url to inktomi on February 19th, 2004 in hopes to be indexed into MSN, altavista, askjeeves, etc. I was also promised a free 60 day trial indexing into Yahoo.
I have been emailing Trellian back and forth for days to let them know that my site has not been indexed into any of the inktomi partners sites as promised, especially MSN. I am however in the Yahoo index, but nowhere to be found even though I hold many top listings in Google.
I have been given the run around by Trellian. They kept telling me to type the full URL into the address bar (like I'm stupid).
Finally, yesterday they come back and say it looks as though my site has been "accepted" into the new "site match" program, so I will have a listing in Yahoo if I want to PPC, but I will not have not have listing with MSN or any of the inktomi partners.
I feel as though I have been swindled. I would think that they have to honor the original purchase agreement until the end of my 12 months.
Any ideas of who I can take this issue to?
Email your URL and contact details to me, and I will look into it for you.
If you have submitted to Inktomi before Mar 1 then there is no reason why your submission should not be honoured.
The only reason you would not have been accepted is if the content of the URL you have submitted violates the Inktomi content guidelines.
