Guten Abend Wolfgang (or should I say Grüss Gott? It is past midnight your time and mine.)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld. I hope you will like this forum and we do need an Österreicher from Mozart's home town to help us out with all the Austrian search engines and directories. (I have been to Salzburg many times, the first in 1951, when I was taken to see the play "Jedermann" during the festival. Didn't understand a word of course, I was only a child then, but I was impressed with the booming voice shouting "Jedermann" from the castle - can still remember it exactly.)

Thank you for the links you provided. Could you also help us straighten out all the question marks in the Austrian chart above. That would be nice. I collected the search engines from many different sources just to get things started here, but I don't know if the list if complete, correct or up to date.

Hi Jan,

intersearch.at is an alias to abacho.de.

For Alles Klar please see my post at the switzerland forum.

Regards,

Uli

Austria has now been updated as follows:
MSN.at added from wolf's link
Intersearch and Alles Klar changed per wisser's post above.
I have not compared wolf's list of directories to the main chart and am a bit unsure, which of them that should be added.

I would say:

add Abacho.at [abacho.at], please, because it has filtered results (only austrian).
The same with [url=//www.lycos.at/]Lycos.at[/url].
Both use the index of their german mother...

Also Austria-search [austria-search.at], I guess it´s a directory with inktomi as backup-se.

May be some austrian members know something about these.
I got some numbers about austrian SEs:
austria-search.at/1.000.000 (pi)
abacho.at/1.000.000 (pi)
austronaut.at/1.350.000 (pi)
lycos.at/2.000.000 (pi)
altavista.at/6.000.000 (pi)

BTW: no connection to [url=//www.webindex.net/]Webindex[/url]

Seems they have decided to end auto-submission in Europe, by using the special procedure at altavista.com. Oh well, I guess it was in the cards.

Austronaut (one of the majors in Austria) has just introduced a PPC paid inclusion system.

Thanks for the info, place1 - looks like a completely independent PPC scheme.
Will be interesting to see how it pans out.

Do you think it's worth spending the 150 Euro setup fee for a try?

not really, CURRENTLY you can still achieve top rankings without spending any money. they update within 1-2 days, and any 1 account can have up to 10 pages listed.

just utilise good seo practices and you should be fine.

Hi forum,

linx.at is new. there is a big media-company behind that so they may become a important directory.

just some more as this thread seems not to be very popular.

Handle Austronaut like Altavista. It's almost the same.

Hello maff - welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Thanks for your update on linx.at - which company is behind it?

>austronaut
handle like altavista...can you explain? Results are pretty different between Alatavista.at and Austronaut.

thread not popular - wouldn't say so. We have some members here from Austria, but like everybody else they post all over the board. We are however pleased if local experts update our collective knowledge on Austrian search engines!

what is with the log-in at linx.at?...is it possible to add a site to their directory without signing up?

First let me say that I am new to SEO so maybe my line about austronaut was a little too fast. They say, that title- and meta-tags will help.

linx.at: The company behind is the "Kurier-Gruppe" all links in their bottom line point to their magazines. Kurier is Nr.2 in Austrian Newspapers and the 2 biggest Austrian Newspapers belong to one company "mediaprint".

@eric
I did't search for a way to submit without log-in,yet. The page I was looking for was already in.

Eric - no it's not possible to submit to Linx without signing up.

austria-search looks like it might be dead.

Three other directories:

Klammeraffe.at
Henkel's WWW-Index of Austria
Wienerzeitung.at

(although Henkel's looks bad, referrals actually do dribble through from there.)
