>Has anyone else noticed that recently submitted pages to AltaVista cannot be found in the top 50 listings on ANY keyword search. I was wondering if there is some sort of waiting period before your site will show up. I am having a hard time fine tuning my site if I cannot even see how is is ranking in the first place. Dose anyone have any sort of an answer for me. Try it for yourself, search a keyword and look at the last updated dates. Very interesting.....

Goodday, use the "Advanced" search in AV
to find your site. Click on Advanced to the right in the AV
search page.
In the "Range of dates:" From: put the date you indexed your Web page.
If your pages are in the top 30, try it again, but back the date one
month and see if your pages are still listed, if yes, back up 1 more
month if still listed in the top 30 for the three months you might
have a winner.
