  • Hi All, reporting back as promised. the site was reported as crawled on 25/04/08, and two additional paged reported as indexed. I suppose I should be pleased, however the site has thirty pages so a little disappointed. The site map was resubmitted this week with all the changed pages, back to the waiting game again. Thanks all for your interest.

     

    UPDATE 03 May 2008

    Seems to have "kicked off" now with18 pages indexed, now the long haul to the top of the SERPs. Thanks all for your help.

  • hi PlanetEarth,

    I looked in your sitemap.xml file at the root directory of your site.All files'  last modification tag are <lastmod>2008-02-26</lastmod> .So maybe due to this your are getting no fresh crawl since  3/3/08.Updating the <lastmod> tag may help.

    thanks

  • Hi, nothing as yet, webmaster tools still show the last visit as 3rd March, I have changed the sitemap as suggested and re-submitted it a couple of days ago. I will post any progress here. Mick

  • Hi,

     

    Have you looked into your logs? The webmaster tools are still in beta and it sometimes doesn't update the "crawled date". We are working on this and hope to release a fix shortly. Please let me know.

     

    Thanks,

  • Hi Brett, thank you for your interest and comments. I dont have access to any server logs, Im  just going on  the information in webmaster tools  secondly the home page (which is indexed by MSN ) and has changed since it was last crawled is still showing the same information as in March, and thirdly no other pages have been indexed. So Im a little confused. Thanks will keep you all posted. Cheers Brett. kind regards Mick

  • We have been trying since November 2006 with  msn etc to get 11 sites read as all dropped in the November and have not been read to any use since after Msn changes then.

     

    we created there beta autorization file and placed as required  NO diffference with the correct Live search xml

     

    All other major  search engines from Google Yahoo Yandex rambler etc  no problems at all but livesearch is  a complete disaster.

     

    So I can appreciate you situation we even paid web engineers to try with no result.

     

    For us the sooner  Msn is  abolished the world will be better with more reliable companies, !!
