>Many of the major search engines (i.e. Excite, etc.) say that it may take up to 2 weeks before your URL appears on their index after submitting. Is that really about how long it takes, or is that just a maximum? I submitted about a week ago and was wondering if it would be another week before it was out there?
I submitted at Altavista, Infoseek, Yahoo! Lycos, Excite, Hotbot, Webcrawler about 8 weeks ago. Alvista indexed my web page after 3 days, Infoseek more than 2 weeks, Yahoo! 6 weeks. The rest? Nothing show up yet :(
