[thelist] AOL strange behaviour on search

I have a website http://www.serekundapoodles.com which is readily 
searchable by typing 'serekunda poodles' in the popular search engines.

The client, whose website this is, uses AOL as his ISP and when he 
searches using AOL's customized search facility he can only find his 
website by typing in the full url. Unfortunately many of the people who 
wish to view the website are in the USA and also use AOL and, unless 
they remember the url they cannot find the website.

My client has contacted AOL and they can't figure out what the problem 
is. They can see that there is no problem with Google but AOL uses 

Anyone had a similar experience or have any idea what's happening?

It would seem that AOL is filtering Google's data but they don't seem 
to think that's the case.

Kind Regards
Chris Price
