    Can anyone tell me how long I should expect to wait for Inktomi to refresh my listing?

    I've been waiting almost 4 days now :confused:

    My experience is that Inktomi siders sites every 48 hours as promised.

    They seem to be quite reliable in that respect...

    Now, if your question is whether you will see results right away on major SE's; that may take a while. SE's using Inkotomi take some time to pick up the listing. Sometimes a week, maybe two. (But it works the other way too! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] )

    Finally if your question refers to your reseller's report page that doesn't show any activity, just wait. My reseller lags up to two days in posting current reports.

    Another thing ... My report from the reseller itemizes last weeks hits.

    Be patient.

    Finally if you have waited too long, it is time to consider this: ( I don't mean this in a bad way... it happened to me ) there may be such serious optimization problems with your site that it won't get listed without a complete rewrite.

    Good luck

    Doc

    If you just signed up for it, it could take 24 hours for it to be SUBMITTED to Inktomi (with Positiontech, at least) then up to 72 hours before Inktomi visits your site. Maybe the weekend affects the submission schedule as well - I don't know. In any case, it will be every 48 hours AFTER the first time.

    Thanks for the replies.

    It all seems ok now, I think their "last refresh date" isn't accurate though.
