>I'm getting no results at all from Infoseek and slow at best from Altavista. My Metas and content are all in order and nothing is unusual, it seems like they are just not cataloging like expected. Anyone else having this problem in the last two weeks or can offer advice?

AV is usually the most reliable of search engines but it shuts down
indexing occasionally. You can use their "Advanced Search"
to view additions by date. It appears that AV has added virtually
nothing during the past two weeks.

Other engines such as Infoseek often appear to me to be dormant for
MONTHS at a time.

BTW, my experience is that it can take MANY months to get listed in
all of the major SEs (and a lifetime to appear in Yahoo)
