How do you search on Teoma to find out if your site is listed? I tried using the search query "domainname.com" but can't seem to find my site - and am not sure if it's because it is burried deep or because it isn't listed. Thanks :)

Mhmm - good question.
Tried the usual suspects, like url:, site:, host:, to no avail.

Probably missed out on it, but do we have any info on board on advanced search options at Teoma?

If you searched on your domain name and didn't get it then the chances are good you are not listed with them.

How long has your site been up?

Omni - if your site is listed in Teoma, it should appear when searching for [mydomain.co.uk...] - this seems to work regardless of whether the domain has been submitted via their PFI service or is an older 'unpaid' listing.

Getting listed without resorting to PFI is another matter though and one that probably involves time and patience.

Not too long, a few weeks. Get what you mean ann, but was just wondering if there are any definite answers to this question :)

Maybe you could search for some unique short phrases that are on your homepage, or something that's on most of your pages, e.g, your company's name and a copyright notice.

If you get too many hits, you should be able to narrow it down. How old is your site? I don't think they have updated their index lately.

You could also search for "Ask Jeeves" in your log files. It crawled approx. 20 pages on June, 26th. Right now only eight of my pages are in their index, as opposed to 71 pages in Google. Me thinks they are doing a lousy job.

as omni suggested putting in the uri into the search box, will confirm inclusion or not.
