How to get spidered?

How long does it take for a new site to get spidered by Fast/Alltheweb, and what prompts the spider to pay a visit?

FWIW, my site went live on Oct. 11, had several listings in Yahoo by early November, and has had several thousand pages listed in Google since late November, but I've never seen a Fast or Alltheweb spider in my server logs. Is this normal?

Had 2 sites launched oct. 18th, one got picked up by FAST and was indexed by the last update, the other didn't so I submitted it (december) to alltheweb.com and FAST was there to check, but no deepcrawl.

I'll have to wait for the next FAST update to see results for the site submittet.

I only submit the index page, like mydomain.com/

I've been waiting at least 6 weeks for a visit, with a listing in ODP; doesn't seem to be Fast to me.
Mind you, I'm also still waiting for Teoma and Wise Nut, so...

Hard to tell at this point what is or is not normal with Fast.
Fast aims at agressively growing their index. Apparently they are encountering some problems lately. Update cycles have been delayed.

OTOH they are launching an PFI programme. The beta was said to be ended on 1 December. A European programme has been announced for several weeks. Neither thing happened.

europeforvisitors, Fast knows about your site, several links are in their index already. So I don't see any necessity to submit. That said it will not hurt to use the submission form at alltheweb.com

The second they are launching it you will now, i am V.I.P list for the PFI program :)
