Hi, I've been enjoying the Altavista research immensely, and I especially liked the debate about the search results. Commercialized, or not, that is the question...

Anyway, I was wondering if any of the pros so recently back from the beach, or one who is still there, knew what the turn around time was for scooter, from submit to spider to index? I got visited yesterday, and I've been all over the site trying to find my pages, but they haven't gotten in. Would anyone care to help an amatuer? Thanks.

AltaVista will send a spider immediately upon submission, occasionally It's a day or so later.

The time it takes to actually show up in the index though varies. Lately It's been anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks.

The spider that visits for page submissions is not the one that follows links, that one may or may not come later.

Thanks for the heads up, I will be on the look out for the follow up spider...

Scooter spidered my entire site the next day after submission. Very fast. It also spidered all of the pages listed in my FP2000 contents page. A good way to link to all of your pages without a mess of links at home.

Is that like a site map that FP generates?
