Altavista™ Submission Policy

AltaVista strives to provide the most relevant search results on the Web!
In order to maintain the integrity of the search index, we must sometimes exclude submissions that manipulate search results. Examples of such manipulation include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Pages with text that is not easily read, either because it is too small or is obscured by the background of the page,
  • Pages with off-topic or excessive keywords,
  • Duplication of content, either by excessive submission of the same page, submitting the same pages from multiple domains, or submitting the same content from multiple hosts,
  • Machine-generated pages with minimal or no content, whose sole purpose is to get a user to click to another page,
  • Pages that contain only links to other pages, or
  • Pages whose primary intent is to redirect users to another page.

Attempts to fill AltaVista's index with misleading or promotional pages lower the value of the index for everyone. We do not allow URL submissions from customers who spam the index and will exclude all such pages from the index.

We reserve the right to remove and/or to disable links to a Web site or Web page to which AltaVista has determined, in its sole discretion, that improper steps have been taken to manipulate AltaVista's search results.

If you have any questions or concerns about this policy or its implementation, please contact us by e-mail at: © 2002-2004 email:
