    Anyone seeing anything strange with recently submitted pages? I have optimized pages exactly the same way as I have always done. I have two recently submitted pages that MSN say are there, but when I search for them using my keywords, they are nowhere to be seen (way way down).

    i have never had a problem like this getting onto the first page with so little competition. E.G. one keyword phrase has only 10,000 competing sites. I would have expected a top 3 position, but it is not in first 100.

    I have another keyword with only 300 competition. I would expect a #1 for my keywords but I am at #90.


    i tried swapping the links but the swapped links also rank way down. It is almost as if those two Inktomi submissions are ranking low no matter what I put there.

    I do have other uRLs from same domain ranking high, so it is not a penalty for my domain.

    Anyone else seeing strange things like this or am I alone here.

    We were having the same problem with Inktomi and MSN a couple of weeks ago. We'd always gotten first page rankings, and then, wham, one day everything had dropped. So we redesigned and resubmitted and by that time, the rankings had gone back to where they'd been and we had to redesign and resbmit all over again. It had apparently just been a hiccup in how Inktomi was ranking sites and didn't last long. Maybe it's happening to you this time? We have lost a few rankings in the last day or so but are going to wait to see if they come back on their own.

    Thanks Hershey
    Glad to know that it is not just me. Did you contact Inktomi about this?

    No, we didn't contact Inktomi. We will if things don't go back to the way they were a few days ago. I'd say wait a few days to see what happens.
