Spammed the index on purpose.
From Inachu at HELP DESK on 6 Jan '00
Just to let everyone know that I did all the evil stuff you should not do
when submitting to search engines.

How did I spam?

A. Multiple copies of the website on different servers.
B. Submitted the url more than 10 times a day.
C. too many repetitive keywords(spam)

I am in the process of removing and cleaning it
up by tonight 01-06-2000

I did this to see the turn around time in getting it back up in the
top 10-20.

Not everyone knows how long it takes to "HEAL" a website.

So I think it may take up a few months.

I called infoseek(now called GO) and here's what they said in
regard to a spammed site.

Submitting with the program SUBMIT WOLF doesn't work.
(I'll call trellian about this to confirm.)

Also you can not spam the same url and that it will only accecpt
that one url per day.
It will just over look the past ones you just did and accept the recent
submitted url.

I think INFOSEEK(GO) is aware that people make mistakes
when submitting and that they will gladly help you fixing your problems.
