Search Engines
From Bill Nelson on 17 March '01
OK. So I know nothing about getting in the search engines.

I add my URL to all of them. Never see it listed.
I have done altavista, go.com, fungranny.com, nbci, lycos, hotbot etc
This is crazy. Do they ever list anyone? Or do they have enough already? I don't have $200 for looksmart and get stuck on page 6 or higher.
What is the average number of pages someone will look at when they do a search? Anyone know? I look at two or three pages. I told the people at looksmart that I would pay if I was listed in the first three pages. Someone named Karen wrote back that they don't guarantee where it will be listed. I guess they only guarantee to take your money.

If the internet is for information why do I have to pay someone just to get listed? Do they have insiders helping them? Am I the only one who is disgusted?
