I don't see an update as off yet. Fast is my personal nightmare, all other engines non-dependant on fast results are dancing to my beat, but fast/lycos and others are not.
I don't understand how to crack fast.

your right, just seen the update not sure if it is switching, but for targetted keyphrases, for the most competitive, just went to #1 for them all, and the less competitive, already their.

I see some movement on Alltheweb.com and Lycos too.
Not in a positive way though, but I have only checked a few searches.

Had a look seeing some movement for one site however most still look as they were.
My site with New Page New Page New Page on the Fast results still has it.
They have obviously spider since I changed the page but they have not updated that sites entries.
Are the multimedia results on the right hand side new???

>Are the multimedia results on the right hand side new???
Well, Iīve been scratching my head over this - and, yes, I think the implementation on the serps is new. Remember, alltheweb is a mere showcase for Fast technology.
They are anyhow very good at indexing multimedia files. Video, audio and image files are a specialty of Fast technology - one of the main reasons for the t-online deal.

I am seeing some movement, in a positive way. :)
I checked for a keyword, got results....closed the window.....ran the search again two seconds later and got different results

>>ran the search again two seconds later and got different results<<
Something similar happen to me on Lycos the other day... I ran a test search, clicked to the second page and then went back to the first, and the results had changed. Thought it might be a way of giving me different results assuming I didn't like the first, so I deleted my cookies and tried again. No luck... I didn't get the same results again until the next day.

>got different results
I tried several searches but canīt reproduce the effect, neither on lycos not alltheweb.
>a way of giving me different results assuming I didn't like the first
hmm, though fast technology should be capable of providing *personalized* results I donīt think itīs done.
I suppose this could be a matter of integrating new 24 hours spidered urls with their regular 2 weeks update cycles. In Lycos.Europe sites a few months ago we had the problem of lycos lagging up to 4 weeks behind alltheweb. Now, from what I see, all lycos sites are synchronised with alltheweb. This raises questions on how fast partners get their results. Fast db is served from regular PCs. Perhaps they have a similar structure as Google - with different versions of the database. But this is mere speculation - any information on this is much appreciated!

Don't see any movement either it's time soon or?
