Inktomi, Fast And Other Site Submit Deals
Posted 21 January 2005 - 08:36 PM
I have for the past year used Positiontech's Direct Site Submit program for three URL's to be listed (from our one domain). Renewal is coming around again and not really sure they have been really useful and not sure I want to keep paying hundreds of dollars for it?
Our site ranks consistently in the top 10 in Google and in Yahoo / MSN for many of our keywords. Will pulling out of the Inktomi and FAST direct submit program cause any long lasting harm directly or indirectly to our Google, Yahoo and MSN rankings ?? Once listed, won't the spiders continue to crawl my site -- I don't really care that my site won't be updated every 24 hrs or that I won't be able to see their click through or site data.
Also, I do pay the $299 per year to Yahoo for their directory listing. I would appreciate anyone's thoughts on this practice. I can only see it as being worth it for the one way link to our site, therefore possibly increasing popularity with the SE's.
Thanks for any help with understanding the significance of keeping with the Site Submit programs.

Those are the same as PositionTech's program, I believe.
None are really worth it much these days, however.

I paid for a couple of URLs to be listed for two years (mid-2002 through 2004 I think), dropped it when renewal came up last year. For me, no return on the investment. I do much better in non-paid, organic rankings.
I don't pay for the Yahoo listing (and never have). There is a thread around here somewhere with a Yahoo directory debate.

None, what so ever!
The Inktomi and FAST direct submit programs have not had anything to do with listings in Yahoo and MSN for nearly a year and have never had anything to do with listings in Google
So, if you are already ranked well in these, it should continue just fine.

I got 1 url... and then msn descided to stop including paid results. Getting spidered 'normally' is much better and cheaper IMO.
