So finally you're up and running! You've made it intorepparttar big search engines like Yahoo! (Getting into YAHOO! Is like having a 5-minute TV advert duringrepparttar 128399 Superbowl game!). You are getting calls and e-mails. All of a sudden - WHAM! Your site has DISAPPEARED from 4 ofrepparttar 128400 major search engines - and you're FURIOUS! is in a slump! Business drops to a limp - and you don't know why.

Mysteriously, this has been happening to me EVERY MONTH on YAHOO! For 3 weeks Im on, then PRESTO! Totally wiped OFFrepparttar 128401 map. @$%&"!??! I have to endure another FLURRY of hectic, time wasting RE-SUBMITTING my site to everyone onrepparttar 128402 planet in hopes of getting back on to Yahoo! Finally, after some weeks, Im on again....then a week or so goes by then - BOOT! Im out left field again! Why? Read on forrepparttar 128403 possible answer!

Enterrepparttar 128404 injustice ofrepparttar 128405 system - namelyrepparttar 128406 COMPETITION! Along comes www.mallorcan who does not like seeing YOU onrepparttar 128407 web!

Your competitor knows your web site URL or address, and your E-Mail address - so, one afternoon, he has nothing else to do, so he RE-SUBMITS YOUR SITE TO ALL THE MAJOR SEARCH ENGINES! He does this over and over, so thatrepparttar 128408 major players inrepparttar 128409 web "yellow pages phone book" think YOU are forcing them to push your site - and repeated submissions constitutes "SPAMMING" - flooding search engines with a web site in hopes that it will berepparttar 128410 top one onrepparttar 128411 first page! The big computer-robot-operated engines do not know WHO is sending in your site, they merely get cheezed off with YOU and "POOF" - you are dropped - zapped-vaporised!

Don't believe me? Go to On page two - I quote: "Re-submit it! Getrepparttar 128412 URL of your competitors document and submit it again. The robot (ofrepparttar 128413 major search engines) will visit, realise it's SPAMMED, penalise it and it gets moved torepparttar 128414 bottom ofrepparttar 128415 pile, which means YOU MOVE UP!"

This little paragraph could spell disaster for businesses new and old wanting to fairly compete onrepparttar 128416 Internet. The injustice is that ANYONE inrepparttar 128417 world who doesn't like your face could arrange to have your entire web site reduced to virtual ashes.

SOLUTION: Search engines and Internet Directories should be ordered that ALL web site submissions be accompanied by a PIN number, ID number or a password - something very common these days on a myriad of services and sites onrepparttar 128418 web. This way, only YOU can change, re-submit or delete your site. There are even some search engines that have a DELETE feature where if you knowrepparttar 128419 URL address of a site and their E-Mail address - something easy to do - YOU could delete THEIR pages!

ACTION: Send an E-Mail to friends and family, asking them to send notes to these engines and directories demanding that they solve this problem now!
