I heard that if you pay for inclusion, alltheweb only index the single url and may come back in a few weeks to comb the rest.

I have a really large site. What should I do to get it indexed with atw?

thanks

pss: any suggestions on altavista as well?

Tankman,

Honestly, I would wait until the Yahoo! dust settles before spending your money on ATW or AV.

Things should get a bit clearer in the next few weeks.

Having said that, you do have three options with ATW and AV:

1) Wait and hope you get spidered naturally.
2) Flat fee PFI
3) Trusted Feed

1 might not be an option if you want the traffic now.

2 is an option if you have less than 1000 URLs and do not qualify for TF (500 for AV).

3 may be your best solution if you have a really large number of URLs

Good advice Warren. I'd sit it out for a few weeks as well. Hard to tell what will happen. Maybe the feeds will be combined, maybe those search destinations will close.. who knows? :)

Just wait until Thursday's PI panel at the Pubconference.
