NONE: ONLINE-ADS>> Search engines dropped my site

ONLINE-ADS>> Search engines dropped my site

My Web site ( didn't show up at
all today on Infoseek, Hotbot, Excite, and Lycos. It's still listed with
AltaVista, Webcrawler, and Yahoo. I've heard a rumor that some of the
engines won't list free pages anymore (like the ones on Geocities), but
mine was already listed for over a year. My site is not some cheap porno
page; it's for business researchers, and it has a wealth of useful
information. The really weird thing is that Infoseek has ten other sites in
their index that link to me, but yet they don't have my site listed. Same
with Hotbot. AltaVista has something like 80 pages that link to mine. Does
anybody know what's going on or what I can do about it? I sent an e-mail to
Infoseek, but I got a canned response thanking me for my input. I don't
know if I'll get any more than that from them.
