Not submitting the page...

...we'll see how long the listings take.

I put a new page up on my employer's site, and put links to it from all the main pages on the site. Normally, I would immediately submit all the pages with links and the new page to all the SEs... but this time I'm just gonna wait.

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?

A week to be spidered and about 3-4 weeks to be listed :)

Well, if that turns out to be the case, I'll NEVER submit anything to a spidering SE again...

Listings active in 3-4 weeks would be half (or less) the time I ususally wait for submissions to appear!

See the way I see it is that ABOUT.com will get spidered all the time as it is forever changing.

Agreed, drbill. I have one client who has a good link from about.com, and their updates go very quickly into most SE's.

LOL... AltaVista and Excite must've forgotten to follow our first link on About for the last 6 mos...

I'll be checking for spiders and updates on Monday, so we'll see what's turned up.

Spider activity has been virtually nonexistent (except for FAST's regular visit).

Anyone know if this is an across-the-board thing? Spiders just not out this week?

been pretty quiet for me this week. FAST and Lycos only - oh and the general pounding from alexa - 1300 hits in 24hrs.

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.

> most outbound links at About link to a script

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.
