>Well I submitted my Web Site to all the major search engines using The Web Spider, which I bought here, and I am extreemly pleased with.
>Now, I noticed this morning I was listed with Alta Vista. However, I don't come up under any of my key words, only my url. Does it take time for them to properly index and rank my page? Or is the deal, once it's up, that's the position!?

AltaVista's spider will usually spider your page right away, but your site will go into a sort of search engine limbo for a couple months, in which it won't show up well, if at all, in a search, but will finally fall into its final resting spot. My site was spidered in May, and didn't show up with decent results till August, but now it's finally in a great position.

It just requires a great deal of patience!
