Addendum — just because I’m curious — how many Squidoo pages have the different search engines got indexed?
- Google: about 1,340,000 from squidoo.com (This was in JANUARY. In June, it is about 398,000! Mayday! Mayday!)
- Yahoo: Pages (9,671,276)
- Bing: 446,000 results
- Altavista: found 9,660,000 results
- Lycos: 1,107,211 results
- Ask: 222,500 (? — I’m not sure if I figured out how to query Ask properly.)
Again, I don’t think Google’s spiders are less effective than Yahoo’s — no WAY — but it tosses an awful lot of pages into the “suppemental index” if they seem not to give any good info that can’t be found on other pages on the same website. I.E. if you make a lens that’s just like a ton of lenses, don’t expect it to get seen in Google search results!
To figure out if your lens is indexed, use one of the searches above, then add the title of your lens!
