    Has anyone had any trouble getting accpeted to altavista of late? It's possible I've hammered them to often and I'm blocked??

    AV appears to be examining ways of getting rid of the spam, doorway pages and so on, resulting in some domains being blocked. There is a response on their message boards here explaining what is potentially bannable.

    If a submission gets the 'too many urls submitted today' message then they may have caught up with the site.

    Well, lately I have noticed that after you submit, it takes about a month or two for them to spider your entire site. About 2-3 weeks after that it will appear in their canadian index (at least mine did) and 1-3 weeks after that it should appear in their general index.
