One of our ad agencies does some of their own SEO efforts in-house... :(

But, they recently stated they were seeing crawling on new submissions to Infoseek within 24 hours.

We are not experiencing the same response.

Anybody else seeing crawling within 24 on "new" URL's being submitted?

Wow, this would be a find. I've not submitted to Iseek in months. I'll give it a go today.

I can't even remember what that creepy little spider looks like, it's been so long since I've seen it. I kept track for 2 weeks after my last submission and didn't see it at all.

I tried several root domains yesterday and no Iseek spider anywhere.

Redzone,

I submitted a domain yesterday to go.com and shortly afterward saw the spider show up:

204.162.96.124 - - [11/Jul/2000:21:34:55 -0400] "GET /robots.txt "InfoSeek Sidewinder/0.9"
204.162.96.124 - - [11/Jul/2000:21:34:56 -0400] "GET / HTTP/1.0" "InfoSeek Sidewinder/0.9"

Yesterday also saw the spider show up on a domain I had submitted almost exactly a month before. However, after closer study, I think the spider is following links of sites submitted about 1 month ago to get there and the timing is coincidental. Also seeing the spider on domains submitted 1-1 1/2 months ago that were submitted by hand, root domain only, to go.com.
