It has taken me four months to finally get freshbot to come by my site.

 

My extensive research indicates that I've done everything 'right'... it just takes time.

 

The good news is that doing the right thing can pay off. The fact that freshbot has looked at over 1500 pages of my site this month indicates that I should get a deepcrawl visit from Google soon.

 

To speed things up, get listed in dmoz.org and other directories (Yahoo)

 

Also, get high page ranked sites to link to you. The more similar to your 'theme' the better... and generally, the more the better.

 

Google likes to find sites through other sites.

I've submitted to both dmoz.org and Yahoo with no luck so far. What sucks is that I've submitted sites before that were far more amatuer and weak than this one and they got instant adds.

 

I've gotten freshbot hits, none of this stuff has stuck around in the index for more than a day or two. I have the following links:

 

http://www.tommyemmanuel.com/tommy.htm - considered the world’s best fingerstyle guitarist – plays a festival in September in the middle of Kansas that attracts over 100,00 visitors worldwide - it's a crappy java link though

http://www.trapt.com/news.htm had #1 Active Rock single in April

http://www.3doorsdown.com/new3doors/content/news.asp had #1 Active Rock single in March

http://www.tonic-online.com/news.asp Grammy nominee in February.

www.mcarecords.com/artistMain.asp?artistid=328 link on major label website

somethingcorporate.mcarecords.com band official site

http://www.nedevett.com/press.html

http://www.feederweb.com

 

numerous other fan sites

 

 

I'm kinda out of ideas....for what to do and patience is not my best quality.... B) Head Bash

Maybe its time to hire a professional SEO person to assist you with these questions.

If it's been more than three weeks, with no action from Dmoz, consider submitting to the next higher directory category. Do this only once, since you don't want to be penalized for submitting too often.

 

With Yahoo, my research indicates you have three options:

1-regional directory listing for free

2-Express submit for $299

3-Submit every two weeks and wait a really long time

 

I have gone the second route. I have read that the third route works... but if you feel that your site NEEDS to be in a certain Yahoo category, then I'd go with #2 and avoid #3

 

Look for other directories that are relevant to your subject.

 

There are smaller, less well known directories like Joe Ant and Gypsy.

 

What sucks is that I've submitted sites before that were far more amatuer and weak than this one and they got instant adds.

 

You can't control when DMOZ, or Google will get around to doing what we want them to do. Yahoo's Express service gives you a seven day turnaround guarantee... just make sure you get it right the first time.

 

If you read other threads, you'll see that Google is doing wierd things lately. No telling what will happen over the next couple of weeks.

 

I've gotten freshbot hits, none of this stuff has stuck around in the index for more than a day or two.

 

What you really want is a good deepcrawl... sounds perverted. Naughty

 

Anyhow, you shouldn't expect much from freshbot activity.

 

What I've read is that freshbot crawls indicates that Google knows where you are. Then comes the monthly deepcrawl. Then Google indexes those deepcrawl results a month later.

 

Lots of things are changing at Google... but I'd say that if you are getting freshbot visits, then keep working on backlinks and eventually things will work.

 

You have a choice: focus on those things you can control, or focus on things you can't control and go crazy.

 

Over the past several months, I've been tempted to choose the crazy route... but hang in there.
