    From Altavista"
    "What's New at AltaVista?
    Take a quick tour of recent site changes and new features
    Fresh, relevant results: AltaVista refreshes 50% of displayed results daily. Results include PDF files as well as Web pages, images, audio and video files."

    I know nobody uses them, but you never know. They have refresh 24hrs or 48hrs for half of the displayed results. Both my sites are page 1, so its a very good search engine [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    It's the best search engine if they'd just get their acts together.

    I don't understand why they just let it die over the last couple of years.

    No wonder why that stupid Scooter bot has been killing my server!!!!! I just got done banning it because it nearly used up all of my monthly bandwidth! I tried using robots.txt to keep it off the less important pages but it just won't listen so I had to ban it completely with .htaccess [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

    I just wish it would pay attention to my robots.txt file. Btw, I only want my pages spidered every couple of weeks; is it possible to tell spiders with robots.txt or do I have to insert the meta tag into all of my pages?

    Tweaker,

    Sorry mate but you can't tell Scooter when to crawl. It isn't part of the robots.txt protocol and a meta-revisit tag is just a load of nonsense which gets ignored.
