Fast on Nomade/Tiscali in France

 5:07 pm on Jul 9, 2002 (gmt 0)

Instead of Google, since this morning, in France.

They certainly show the Fast logo.
Good find webbie.

Nomade is a big player in France, as heini tells here [webmasterworld.com]:

nomade.fr - belonging to the Tiscali group - is one of the top directories in France, good for 30 Mill. pageviews from 900.000 unique visitors monthly.

Thanks Rumbas :-)
Yes, they show the logo and i've read it too.
For your information, Nomade/Tiscali is not SO important here in France, it does not give a lot of traffic compared to Voilà or Yahoo! for example. So, it's a directory you have to be in ok but do not wait a LOT from it ;-)

French Webmasters, as webbie states, he does not feel that this one is a big player. I have taken on a new client who has french version of his site. Do you think that this is not a biggie like webbie says? <<i dont know anything bout this one and im taking webbie's word :) >>

Also in the UK it is now showing FAST logo. I'm sure the change to Google only happened 3 months ago.

see [webmasterworld.com...]

FAST is powering the search on tiscali.de (Germany) and tiscali.nl (Netherlands), too!
tiscali.de is also filled up with overture-results. Is this new, or did I miss something before?

In France, it's totally new, see what i'm seeing this morning:

Fast sur Tiscali Recherche

Tiscali recherche (ex-Nomade) vient de passer d'abandonner Google pour Fast pour ses résultats "moteur", affichés lorsque l'outil n'a pas trouvé d'infos dans la base de données de son annuaire, ou lorsqu'il a affiché tous les résultats issus de ceux-ci. Ce passage à Fast est logique puisqu'il fait suite à un accord pan-européen entre le moteur de recherche norvégien et Tiscali. Ceci préfigure-t-il un accord semblable avec Yahoo!, qui pourrait choisir Fast à la place de Google d'ici quelques semaines ? Les rumeurs, de plus en plus persistantes, sembleraient aller dans ce sens. Attendons encore un peu pour le savoir...

the question is what is big player?
Some figures, Tiscali is a fast growing ISP with 5% share
2.5% use Nomade (tiscali search)
in only 6 weeks AOL search share went from 1% to 5%.

All figures indicate that this market is very very instable, no one can predict what will happen in one month.

My suggestion is very simple: be there and wait and see.
I think a 100 euros is worth it.

FAST becomming huge in Europe, prepare for a real war between Google / FAST.
