If you concentrate on getting ranked on Google - then you may not get ranked elsewhere
My experience differs from that. We tend to design sites to be as user-friendly as possible, but in terms of SEO, I'm most familiar with what Google likes and doesn't like in the design, layout, content, etc.
And our clients' sites are doing as well in AlltheWeb's listings, often better, than they are in Google. I've always believed that if you pay attention to the basics of SEO and not worry too much about the details that one SE prefers over another, you can do well in all SEs.
i have a domain that ATW knows about, they have my backlink information but they will NOT list my website either in a search of the keywords or in a search for the actual domain...
I would be interested to see if you have any factual data that suggests that article was wrong...
As to your site: all engines have sites they don't index for a variety of reasons. A ban is only one of the possible reasons, and in most cases not the most likely cause.
Of course I have no idea why your site doesn't get included, you will know better. Do you have any reason to assume a ban of your site?
Why won't ATW index the URL (no porn, no spam).
Thanks in advance.
>text links already indexed by G
So how old is the site? How many links does G show, and how old are those links?
Thanks everyone for your contributions.
