Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
I've been looking around due to the many problems with inktomi, trying to find other uk SE's to submit my clients sites to and came across mirago.
anyone got any idea on the algo's for them, they also say only to submit index page any one had any luck getting anything else in ?
Or is it really worth while worry about at all ?
Very little, although they were providing some of the results for ask.co.uk which could bring reasonable traffic if you have the number 1 rank. Had a quick peek at ask today at it seems they no longer use mirago, will check some logs to see if this is permanent.
>any idea on the algo's for them
The highest word density imaginable, particularly in the meta tag area. Take a look at the source of this page [loan-line.co.uk] [number 6 for loans]. Wow ;)
They would be an ideal candidate for a keyword stuffed noframes section.
On many occasions they give a number 1 spot to sites whose domain name match the keywords entered. I would also be wary of analysing the top ranked pages too much, there may be some <cough> favours being granted.
>only to submit index page
They do spider the whole site.
They are doing a bit of advertising in the Internet magazines etc and are on my submission list.
I get a reasonable number of referals from ask.co.uk which use mirago. Certainly worth submiting your root URL and letting "Henry" crawl your site.
