Nice list rencke, but why have you listed Galaxy [galaxy.com] as a UK engine?
| 10:48 pm on Mar 23, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Simply on the basis of this: "Copyright 1994-2001 Galaxy.com, LLC" I thought "LLC" was used by UK corporations only. Wrong?
| 10:52 pm on Mar 23, 2001 (gmt 0)|
"LLC" is a relatively new (10yrs or less) form of corporate structure in the States. Limited Liability Company. I use one for my web operations.

Fast supplies all the Lycos sites around the world. Is it ok to individually submit to each of the international Lycos sites. That is, submit to their local directories just like you would submit to each AV local directory?

Canīt see that FAST supplies Tiscali/Worldonline [worldonline.de] in Germany.
The searchengine I notice is "Jana" - whatīs that?
| 4:47 pm on Mar 28, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Picked the thing about WorldOnLine/Tiscali off a pressrelease. Interesting. Never heard about Janas before and you haven't either I guess. Checked it out and a search that gives 312.000 pages in Fireball and 222.000 in Lycos.de gives 67.000 in Janas. So they clearly have an index other than Fast's.

Has [sprint.allthesites.com...] been mentioned yet? It's Sprint Canada.
I couldn't find reference to it, and just found the first refer from there. (Sorry if this is duplicate information.)

We have also been working with Elsevier Science [elsevier.nl] to power the Scirus [scirus.com] search engine for scientific information. This is a Dutch subdivision of a large Dutch-British corporation called Reed Elsevier [r-e.com].

Got another one for the Fast swag bag:
[sanook.com] in Thailand.
They also have a link to their site stats on the page ;)
>We have also been working with Elsevier Science
Thanks for that FAST_Mikkel and welcome to WebmasterWorld.

Wonder what language settings it takes to view that site NFFC?
I know the meta says:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-874">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=tis-620">
What's that translate into for ie settings?

Other german partners:
1. Media Markt [portal.mediamarkt.de], a big portal of a real-life tech-supermarket.
A good feature is the date under the description, so you can see the last change of your page (within the index).
2. 12move.de [12move.de], a german provider.
| 10:04 am on Jun 27, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Itīs getting massive over here in Germany:
add netguide.de [netguide.de] to the list.

I think ah-ha.com has been using Fast in the USA since early in 1999.
| 12:06 pm on Jul 25, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Just for the record:
all national Lycos sites have in the meantime switched to using Fast results.
Might be useful to update this thread as not to confuse people, making them think Fast is only about alltheweb :)
| 1:13 pm on Jul 25, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Fast also provides results to ah-ha.com which also provides results to other engines (which can include fast results), and at least one of the engines ah-ha provides results to provides those results to a lot of smaller engines.

Just picked up South African:
[MWeb.co.za...] international search.
| 2:46 pm on Aug 3, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Okay, I think we are all forgetting Fast is Norwegian. That means Alltheweb.com should be down is international.

Well since i have been a member, only one proponent has consitantly proposed Fast as a major heavyweight now and in the future, Brett i do believe. Thanks to Renck, for providing the evidence.
Fast is very important, the list is to convincing not to take Fast in a similar vain as Google.
| 12:36 pm on Aug 5, 2001 (gmt 0)|
Caine, Fast is undoubtedly a heavyweight from a non US perspective. In europe Fast has continuosly gained reach, now with the overall exposure via lycos it can only be rivaled by Google. That said, US members for sure have Fast on the list for the near future.

I'm picking up a few referalls from allthesites. It looks like they've gone after some co-branded Sprint telcom deal.
| 4:41 pm on Aug 20, 2001 (gmt 0)|
[sprint.allthesites.com...] is a 404
[sprint.allthesites.com...] is active
