Fast has updated, lots of our sites seem to have been removed but they are still being spidered. Any ideas why this is? Could it be anything to do with the paid inclusion coming into effect?

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

Apart from some very bizzare domain names that is.

Like

aaa.fir.co.uk.xyz.org

and other such bizarre combinations

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.

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.

*bump*
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?
