I have only submitted this site to ATW using the free submit, and it has never indexed it. Considering ATW traffic is so little, it doesn't really matter too much to me, but I still would love to know what the problem is.
I just sent an email to them about it, but I think I have already emailed them 2 or 3 times over the last year and a half. I'm not expecting much.
Instead I basically said, it's been 2 years, site has never been indexed, it follows every guideline, has been on every other engine since the month the site went live, except yours. What are you guys doing wrong?
So now I figure if I wasn't already banned for some unknown "shouldn't be banned" reason, I probably will be now, lol.
Any bets on if I will ever get a reply?
Do this search:
once you get to the SERP, go to the address bar and add the following text to the end "&no=off". This will turn the offensive filter content off, and your listing just may show up. (there are easier ways of turning the filter off).
Please note that Fast is very sensitive and will Filter a site first and ask questions later, if you know what I mean.
Hope this helps, good luck!
That's just my experience though. Others are different.
johnny0723, I tried your suggestion and still nothing. No reason it should be filtered anyway.
The mystery continues, 100% clean site full of plain old .html pages loaded with content ranks well on every other search engine (and is in EVERY other search engine), is in every major directory, has a PR6 (dropped a point, should be at 7 again in the near future), and has NEVER been in All The Web in the 2 years the site has been up. Just knowing a site like mine (informational) isn't in ATW's index really makes me wonder why I would ever not use Google when I have to search for something.
Not to mention, if I was having this same problem on Google instead of ATW, I'm sure 1 quick email to them would be all it would take it get an answer. I know that from experience.
Sounds like a ban of some sort to me. With all those inboud links ATW should have found your site by now.
Yup, ATW 'SHOULD' have found my site by now.
Perfection, sounds to me like it's some sort of glitch or ban. Could be the filters as well. Send them a note.
I have already emailed ATW a bunch of times over the last 1-2 years asking why my site have never been listed and guessing that it must be banned due to some type of glitch. I don't remember the first emails so well since it was so long ago, but I never got a reply from an actual human. I might have gotten a useless "here are the basics of getting a site listed" reply. My most recent email that I sent a few weeks ago didn't even get one of those.
I guess I could just keep on emailing them every few weeks, but it doesn't seem like it will do any good. Is there an AllTheWeb guy around here, like a Googleguy? I'd really love to solve this. After all, it's only been 2 years.
Will update this post when I'm added. It will be really strange though, I've been checking ATW on and off for 2 years for this site to be added, when I finally see it there it will look so weird, lol... but good.
Dont know what the problem is or when it will be fixed, but just wanted to warn you that even paying for inclusion might not always mean *instant* results. Hopefully, it will mean results at some point though!
