There are of course thousands of internal links between the various database sites.
Last week I submitted about a dozen of the handbook individual ones, thinking it would work 'cleanly'
I've just checked the top 30 and the keyword 'overland motorbikes' comes up dozens of times all pointing to any page but the corrrect one. If anything looked like spamming......
The main offenders are AOL and Lycos (the handbook hasn't been submitted to ODP) MSN (its not in LookSmart and Alta Vista is correct) and Snap (I submitted a couple to the Live Directory and some are correct)
Google, Netscape and Inktomi have incorrect ones but luckily only a few
Goto and Northern Light only show the base url
I thought I'd worked it out by not submitting the base url any more but I've now got totally confused!
Is it to do with truncating the url to the base and should I only submit my doorway pages, each of which has multiple links to the main sites, to the above engines?
Luckily there are few external links - yet! -so hopefully the pages won't stay put but I don't want it to happen again.
