I have paid to be included on Inktomi, yet I still get over 90% of my traffic from Google.

I was wondering how well does Inktomi work for the rest of you.

I'm afraid to be so dependant on Google, and would love to get at least half of my traffic from my Inktomi pages, but it looks like the way I try to optimize my pages works for Google but doesn't do anything to give me good rankings in Inktomi.

Do you optimize differently for Inktomi?

I think it has to be tied with the number of pages getting indexed by Inktomi.
I just got three of my sites included (only 1 page from each site), and I see them in msn.com and hotbot, but where??? at 38-60 positions. And when I checked the sites above me, I didn't see no logic in placing them higher (or lower). I'm not whining about my sites being so low, although I optimized them, and the ones above might not be optimized at all. What I see in it is different type of links. The Inktomi redirects simply are rated low. Wherever I checked. Especially on msn. Maybe I'm wrong about it, but I haven't seen one inktomi redirect in the top 10 of MSN results.

So, I'd love to know how many pages people get indexed by Inktomi.

Oh, by the way, when I edited my URL, the old URL disappeared from the results. So it's not really indexing and adding your site to the big bowl, it's more like sticking it between other results as number 99. Am I right?

But really, netsu...

What is your question ?
Your poll, worded as it is , even if everyone here responded , really doesn't provide any information.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR> Do you optimize differently for Inktomi? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Now , that's your real question isn't it ?

For me, No. I ONLY optimize for Inktomi , and what works for Inktomi seems to satisfy Google as well for relevancy .

For some odd reason though, it doesn't work as well the other way around , ie; Optimizing for Google and getting Inktomi .

I just find Inktomi easier , and the recent Yahoo purchase of Inktomi has me convinced that this is where I should be planting some seeds .

Right, I don't see any rhyme or reason, KtoEto

Yes, I realize now it was a stupid poll

lol, actually both were real questions, but I screwed up on the first one.

The truth is, I don't really optimize for a specific SE. I optimize the only way I know how ( working on keyword URLs, titles, meta-tags, H1 tags etc). They have worked out for google, but I can't figure Inktomi out yet. Like KtoEto said on his reply above, I don't see any logic in inktomi placements which are above mine.

ITA with you, Lisa. I just hope I figure Inktomi out before it's to late for me, and I'm left behind.

Thanks for your replies!
