Disappearing site listing at viscaonline.com

Ever since the new format where it shows relevant categories as well as listings, i have this problem...

Whenever i submit my two sites to viscaonline.com, they are always searchable right away, but then always disappears out of the index 2 or 3 weeks afterwards. The incoming traffic for those 2 weeks is usually good, and then it completely drops. I submitted my site a number of times, maybe that has something to do with it? When I check their "to be reviewed queue", i can see my sites, but as soon as the queue is updated and there are only a fraction of the sites on there, mine is no longer searchable!!

My question is, what is their policy with handling multiple submissions on a single URL, and what reasons would something like this happen based on their policies and stuff like that?

While we have no way of knowing for sure how this engine will do in the future, any that have so little traffic (as from the alexa tool) and have problems as you mentioned, I would concentrate elsewhere.

Just IMHO, you understand.

I hope the site picks up in traffic, I like the style of the site - our site currently gets a few hits a week from it, those hits could be worth a million dollars so i wont judge the web site (: Try to become a featured listing, place a link on on your site to theirs...

pulled from the submission guidelines at viscaonline.com...

Multiple submissions of same URL not allowed and will be removed.

It is best to follow submission guidelines to the letter. ~cheers~

whats going on with this beta submission stuff? look at what happened to their submit page at [viscaonline.com...] , looks like they are putting in a new submission system that has instant URL adding. then when you are done submitting they have a feedback thing that goes to a HOTMAIL address???

Just did a search on "men's clothing", and got an Access database error. (I have a very strong feeling the SQL code doesn't like the "'").

BTW: They aren't going too far using MS Access...

Here's the error:

Database Results Error
Description: [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression '(Keywords LIKE '%men's clothing%' AND Status = 'featured') ORDER BY Title ASC'.
Number: -2147217900 (0x80040E14)
