Mog what update are you referring to - last one from December or do you see a new one?
| 11:35 am on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Don't see an update either.
| 11:42 am on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I'm seeing some sort of an update ... although not a total update. A page that was somehow lost in the last update is back in. I need to do some more searches to tell exactly what this is.
| 11:55 am on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Boy oh boy! They have had a *major* clearout.
>Don't see an update either
Trust me, you don't want to see it.
| 11:58 am on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Uh oh, what did they do? I don't see any changes yet.
| 12:04 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Try going through anonymizer.
mortgage = 2,688,924 at alltheweb, 20,500,000 at Google and 8,996,632 at AV, that looks a major clear out to me.
That said, hold your nerve, they may still be updating.

I see that the numbers have gone down slite, but they haven't updated the pages.
| 12:17 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
No update for me
Dont see any changes

do fast index co.uk ?
if so where are they.
| 12:38 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Well, I don't know what on earth they are doing ... but the new results don't appear to have a grip on any kind of reality. I have some results that were number one and are now off the map, others haven't changed at all and still others are showing up as number 1 to 3 that have no right being there. (They are less relevant to the search phrase than other pages)
Maybe they are starting their own "dance" during update. (Sorry Brett) ;)

It doesn't look like and update to me more like a glitch, as stated before i cannot find a single co.uk adress.
| 12:50 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Don't look like a full update to me either, some pages have changed a bit?
NFFC, are you saying it is not an update, but rather a clean out of dupe pages etc.?
>do fast index co.uk?
Sure they do. I can't imagine they wouldn't - could be a glitch.
Funny thing though: if you do this search [search.lycos.com] for "london" on Lycos.com no .co.uk sites come up either. A lot of .ac.uk sites come up!?

I think we need to let the update settle, it's easy to panic when you only promote .co.uk domains and they *all* vanish. :)
| 1:05 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Yes, as lazerzubb said it's got to be a glitch and probably a db update. Just imagine the mamoth task involved.
Let the dust settle before jumping to conclusions.
ADDED - was posting at the same time as NFFC

Definitely a Glitch - just tried an advanced search on .co.uk domains only and got nothing on any keyword.
| 8:29 pm on Jan 4, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Apart from some very bizzare domain names that is.
and other such bizarre combinations

getting a deep crawl now.

Go Fast Go!
Just nominated you for Search Engines Award...
Seriously: my impression is that Fast as well as Google overpaced a bit lately in their fierce fight for largest, fastest, most ingenious, best SE worldwide.
| 1:29 am on Jan 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Agree with you Heini, for the first time ever i think google is decreasing when it comes to SERP, i think they always will be big but there have been to many glitches lately, so new engines take more traffic, it's good with some competition and i think google will bring us better SERP than ever around Mars.
When do you think FAST will update their DB my guesses are in 3-6 days, they seem to be picking up the sites good now.

The .co.uk sites are back :) (for now)!
| 3:07 pm on Jan 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I see new pages and domains not previously listed.
| 3:53 pm on Jan 5, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I still don't see an update.

I'd be happy just to see a deep crawl on my site. :-)
| 9:53 am on Jan 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
One of my sites which was lost some time ago for no specific reason is still not there.
| 10:22 am on Jan 7, 2002 (gmt 0)|
Didnt see update, but she is crawling very very deep now
| 8:46 am on Jan 15, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I see changes made a few weeks ago now showing in the SERPs. Nice that these changes paid off. Guess they maybe are "back to normal". At least changed pages got updated pretty quickly. I haven't got access to the logs for these domains, so I can't check exactely when they were crawled.
Anyone else see anything?
| 8:57 am on Jan 15, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I see changes number 1 on main kw hope it stay this way.
