Any light on how search engines like google work? I've recently moved my
web stuff to the free site provided by my new ISP. For some reason
google refuses to list any of my "really good stuff". And, doing some
searches I don't think that any other (or very few) pages on this site
are being found. My page http://users.xplornet.com/~bvdp has a fairly
unique pattern I can test "wynndel broadband xplornet". So far the only
hits are back to my OLD web pages which announce a move. BTW, those
pages are gone.
I've discussed this with Xplornet and they have come to the conclusion
that their site is "sandboxed", but don't know why, etc. And, frankly,
I'm not sure they care much either :)
I have tried to "seed" things by filling out the google form (sorry,
forget the exact spot right now).
I find the whole issue pretty interesting, especially since in the past
when I've created new pages, etc. they have been found by google within
hours. Days at the most. These new pages have been up for about a month
now and not a hint from google.
