Hello to everyone.

I got a note from a friend saying that this forum is the best!
We were in business for almost 4 years, we were indexed good in msn and yahoo and google. Now we still have some not bad results in google, but to our greatest surprise we disapeared from yahoo and msn about few month ago. I was trying to analyze what went wrong and what they dislike about our site, by comparing our site to some other sites in the same industry, I find nothing wrong we are doing that everybody else doesn`t.
Our site is snipped. I checked links and keyword density and it is the same as on the other sites. same metas ant titles. We are ok on google but we completeley disapeared on msn, even by searching for our domain name it gives " no results".
We have paid inclusion in to inktome and it showes ok on the indexing at networsolutions.
off topic

Thenk you

You need to remove your web site from this post. It is against the terms of service of the site. Also, it's probably best on the Yahoo forum since MSN still uses the Yahoo search results. They will change later this year.

Msn is feeded by Yahoo.

I searched for your site in yahoo and it appears on top for yoursite.com, but if you search for yoursite only the homepage donīt appear on first place.
So seems the page is index but is not ranking.
What I saw searching for your site ranking higher than your .com page is one .net page with same domain.

It shows up like this in Yahoo:
... Coming Soon! yoursite.net. This domain was registered at: ...

Thank you guys!

First Diamondgirl, how do I romove my link from here?
It was only done for example purposes.
I know that yahoo feeds to msn, but I also know that msn filters results from yahoo, so not all what is on yahoo appears on msn, but I agree the problem exist on two searches.

Yes this are the same results I`m getting, it is so bad, someone used our name to register ourdomain.net, it is not us. We will have to fight with them now. But should it be reflecting on our ranking? oursite.com doesn`t even exist?

Thank you

You said your site is registed with a reseller to Inktomi?

Intomi PFI pages are not longer in the set of results supplied to MSN.

That would explain why you are no longer in MSN.

Inktomi PFI results were never supplied to Yahoo! Only Overture Site Match results are displayed at Yahoo!

Sticky me if you want pricing options etc to upgrade to OSM. If that meets your needs of course.
