  • Question

  • We thought the day would never come when our promotional items site would finally be indexed by MSN.  We had taken every step possible trying absolutely everything including checking for errors in the HTML etc.  There were some signs it was visting the site more frequently but nothing was appearing in the index.  It would crawl certain pages more than others like our promotional writing pad and logo apparel pages.  

     

    Checking the logs today the bot was busy visiting the site.  I figured what the heck and checked the tools and sure enough we're indexed!  It's only 29 pages and ironically it's indexed pages it hasn't spent a lot of time on recently - padfolios and pages like this.  This tells us it's going to index more soon we hope.

     

    We're still not ranking even for our own site name, so we have a long way to go, but don't give up.  The only recent change was a yahoo directory listing but I can't image that was the trigger.

  • Every little bit helps when your site isn't ranking.

    Good luck and keep trying things.

    Jeremiah about the only problem left is it's bouncing around on the number of pages.  It's been as high as 500, drops as low as 300, and appears to be stable around 400 right now.   Overall though big improvements.
