One thing to consider is that you may have been 'spammed'. That is to say, someone may have seen that #1 listing and resubmitted your URL 20 times in 10 minutes to the same search engine, thus causing you disappear. I'm not saying I have any firsthand knowledge of this or anything >ahem< but I am told that this occurs among competitors.


>>>Well after 2 great months of being the number one listing in excite and netfind when searching for "where to buy one share of stock" I have been completely dropped from that search overnite. I am still showing up great in other ways but this baffles me. Why? and what to do is the question? should i resubmit my index page or just let it go for a while as to not screw with my other great key word listings i have , "disney stock" and such. HELP!
>>Same thing just happen to one of the sites I maintain. Just got got top 5 for 4 major keywords and then disappeared yesterday completely.
>>Does anyone know why Excite behaves like this...There is a pattern here...I have notice this before.
>Same thing happened to me on Hotbot. Top 10 then dropped. I've heard
>it may be because that when the spider returns to your site for relisting
>and your site is down due to server maintinance it will drop you.
>Just resubmit.
