It already has a link on About.com, since the topic guide subscribes to our newsletter (where I announced the new page), so that should help. Anyone wanna place bets as to how long it'll take to get spidered and/or listed?
Not submitting is a great strategy for Google and Fast. I never submit to either one. If you can establish a link on a site that is already in their database, you should see them show up fairly soon. I also used to never submit to Ink. It used to be a good free crawler, but I don't think the old Slurp is quite as agressive now that there is a for-fee version.
>LOL... AltaVista and Excite must've forgotten to follow our first link on About for the last 6 mos...
You'll be waiting a long time for these two. And even if they were more active, I doubt a link at About will help much do to the fact that most outbound links at About link to a script (containing the evil ?)that launches that annoying frameset.
Oh geez... I forgot about that. I guess only Google would be able to find me through the About links. I wonder what weight Google gives About links...
Spiders have been neglecting us for the past few weeks... we have plenty of links to the new pages from our existing site, so if and when they ever decide to revisit, they should be able to find the new page. I'm wondering when that will be though. For the last couple months, Google was all over us (along with FAST)... Ink used to be fairly regular too, even after switching to the PFP scheme. This month, nobody except FAST.
