worth keeping an eye on the site i guess, sure to get some more traffic over the next few months!
On April 2nd, I paid $276 to have a client's 7 adult websites included (adult is charged at 2x the going rate).
They are still in the queue as of today, the 13th. My understanding was that when Teoma came out of Beta, paid inclusion sites would be added.
Wondering why I was getting no action after a few days, I wrote to INeedHits.com, the people handling inclusion for Teoma. I was told the sites would be added when the paid inclusion mechanism itself comes out of Beta. No word when that might be.
I am sitting here stewing about Teoma. Looks to me, from remarks above, that the paid inclusion mechanism is working, so why are these sites sitting in the queue still? Get your act together, Teoma.
I dont think anyone uses Teoma yet..
suprised I am not getting more from ASK.Jee
I think it's just going to take time..the good part is..it seems fairly easy to rank because of the small DB at this time..
perhaps if they become a popular search then those of us in early will benefit?
hard to say at this point..I think you give them 4-5 months.. still quiet after that then I wouldnt bother with them
Thanks for the posts guys.
I will let you know.
On April 18th, I called INeedHits.com and asked when Teoma will have their paid inclusion system up and running. I was told it would probably be two more months.
They took my $276 on April 2nd. Nice. This is NOT the way to do business, Teoma.
You may want to ask them why some sites are included within a week and a half and yours is taking forever...I would.
As you may have noticed it says something like 7-9 days till you're in the index...I'd suggest waiting about a week maybe two and then if nothing is resolved contact the better business bureau in your local area and they can tell you what steps to take. Sometimes just a threat like that will get them to see your way. Companies like ineedhits need to understand people want to get what they pay for, you can't just "test market" something with no expectation of delivering, or even worse selling something that isn't even ready...what's the deal with that?
It appears as though Adult sites are not indexed in the Beta Period, that would be why your site has not been included.
Click on the "Adult" link on the order form or click the terms of service and it says...
Adult Website Inclusion
Adult websites will not be included during the beta phase of the Site Submit service!
However, you may submit adult sites during the beta phase to take advantage of the 15 month subscription offer (they will be included and subscribed at the end of the beta phase).
Any URLs containing Adult Material must be submitted with their corresponding 'Is Adult' checkbox checked. Failure to do so will void the URL without refund.
URLs marked with Adult Content with the 'Is Adult' checkbox will be charged at double the standard rate. This levy addresses spamming and quality management required to index these sites.
