>Does Excite index alt tags and comment tags? www.searchenginewatch.com, www.warren.cc.nj.us/~lavora/wdd/altavista.htm, and just about every other site I've checked out says No. Deadlock.com's FAQs say Yes. Am I missing something?

I'm not sure about alt tags and comment tags, but Excite had this to say in response to an e-mail I sent to them:

"Our spider takes the text from the front page of a site and uses that as keywords. We do not index meta tags, and use the most prevalent words on the front page to find the site in a search. Information on this can be found at http://www.excite.com/Info/listing.html"
