Aside from the obvious stuff, cloaking, trickery, etc. Are there more subtle things that Lycos will boot you out of the index for. Apparently I have done something they didn't like! Submission frequency? Number of pages? I have no clue what I did, but I was there for a bit and know I'm gone!

Howdy Scott, welcome back (btw: I had to edit your login so it matched your handle...login as Scott).

Could be just because they have switched to using Fast [alltheweb.com] search results? Are you found in Fast/AllTheWeb.com?

I guess that may be it. I havent seen their spider hit my site yet. Been submitting about every 9 or 10 days to them for over a month. Is that a no-no?
