This is a collective question - just starts out like it's not...

If you make a direct submission to Altavista the final page tells you your page will be submitted for indexing or something like that.

Do the same submission with the collective and it returns
"Submission in progress ...
Submitting: [mysite.com...]
Email used this url: Steve@mysite.com
Submission to Altavista failed. (Server Response code: 200)
Search engine success string not found.
Cached Results Page: see below"

This is the same response from the collective I use to get when the AV message was "too many submission for this site..."

I suspect the new message on the AV results page is just to keep people off their back. Does the Collective have a way of knowing the submission failed or was blocked even though the results page states otherwise???

They changed the results page Steve since the time I released that last version. stay tuned...good things on the way. I'm adding a "check for updates" feature that will poll sew for a new search engine def file to prevent just such an thing from happening.
