I have had a problem submitting to infoseek recently and
e-mailed them to ask why infoseek was not accepting my web
pages. I was suprised (and grateful) at how quickly they
responded to my question. The answer may not be relevant to
a lot of people but I include their response for those that
it might.

As an update to the URL submission problem with co.uk. We are currently
having
problems with our "Status Messaging" system, thus causing an issue of
non acceptance of your URL that includes a co.uk domain name.
Our engineering team is presently looking into this matter,
with hopes to have it resolved by early next week.

When the Status Messaging service is restored we will be able to add your
URLs
for you. If you do not see your URL included in our index by September 25th
then please let us know about it a.s.a.p and we will trouble shoot this
problem
further.

Again, we appreciate your patience during this time. Should you have any
additional
questions or comments, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you for using Infoseek.

I hope this helps some of you!

Andy
