Did Fast burp?
New index appeared and disappeared...

Last night when it was very late and I may have been seeing things, I thought I saw a new site of mine in the Fast and Lycos indexes... and today they are gone. Was it my imagination, or did anyone else see a new index too?

Just checked on 6 result sets of ours and there's no change in position or size of db from 4 weeks back so if there was a burp, relief has been found - we're probably back where we started unless somebody with a larger sample has found something else....

I too am now seeing the same results I've been seeing for a month... but last night I briefly saw a new index. What makes me relatively sure I'm not imagining it is that I checked Lycos too.

My linkcount has increased since yesterday. It had been consistent for the last week or so.

Well, it wasn't my imagination... my new site is in and literally appeared and disappeared as I did repeated searches. I had sense enough to print the results out this time, so I know it's real. The site has also been listed on Lycos, where the results are much more stable. So, I don't know whether it's a general re-index, but I'm definitely seeing something new....
