adding to Infoseek-did their ranking rules change last week? posted by Verle Harrison on 22 September '97 at 09:40

>It seems to me that infoseek change how they rank a site. Is this true?

Yes, they've just decided to limit the number
of keyword repetitions to 3, and that includes
keyword phrases so, for example, you can't have
"gold jewelry, diamond jewelry, pearl jewelry,
silver jewely" because jewelry is repeated 4
times. They used to say it was 7 max, then
said nothing, and now they're saying 3. Note:
this only applies to Infoseek.

I suppose they've been clearing out all spammed
documents, which seems a bit harsh, but they're
in charge.
