However i have watched and read here, a variety of concerns about the pfi program run for teoma.
1. the pfi does not entitle a site to automatic rank, its inclusion only, your site is still fair game to competition, and if its not very well organised, it will be heavily downgraded by Teoma's algo.
2. the time of inclusion, has been questioned certainly in the initial stages of the pfi going online, with complaints, being raised here, about delays and lack of email reponse, though it seems to be working smoother now-a-days, as the amount of posts, concerned with complaints against teoma and its pfi partner, have certainly diminished, which suggest teething problems.
I certainly agree with that, as our recent (minor) problems with the PFI service have been dealt with quickly and efficiently, which is always nice.
In our case, the PFI model has worked nicely and our submitted sites are ranking well on Teoma and Ask across our desired range of keywords. We've become prominent in a matter of days, rather than months as would have been the case without PFI.
Our sites are fairly well organised though and as caine points out, sites where this is not the case may be penalised.
Traffic increase? Not a great deal as yet unfortunately, but the night is still young...
How is it possible to have the most accurate results when some sites may not even be in there. Just my two penneth.
the sites up and running and is good content as far as i'm concerned so can't see a problem with it!!
P.S. If your site doesn't fall into the above call them directly, waiting for an e-mail response will get you nowhere quickly. Just remember the time difference, they are in Australia.
