    Why is this ranking?

    I recently had my site indexed in MSN and Hotbot and I have rank 5 for the term "profesional affordable web design" in MSN search however in Hotbot I do not even appear in the 11 results. Whats with that? I have the search term in my title, the description, and the keywords. I also have it listed in the content as well as the the alt tags on the images/graphics. True my link popularity is not great, I only have about 30 return links so far but I am listed in DMOZ and google. In anycase that should not have anything to do with just showing up in the results, should it? Which leads to me second question, I also went for the term "affordable web design" and on that one I do not even show up on the first 100 or so listings, is my index page so terrible or is it the link popularity?

    HotBot's primary results are from Inktomi.

    MSN's primary results are from LookSmart.
