FAST Portal Partners 2002

The classic FAST dance card [webmasterworld.com], started by Rencke, has undergone many changes. So I thought a new attempt at bringing together all portals displaying FAST websearch results might be useful.

Please report any errors, additions and changes.

Thanks Heini. I would only add that the 6 FAST partners I check all seem to have wildly different serps.

As Alltheweb has little direct traffic always make sure you check the engines that matter for you.

Thanks for the update heini. I just wanted to clarify a statement you made in the old thread [webmasterworld.com] before you locked it ;)
msg #:49
No more Japanese let out for Fast websearch - not good.
They do have a japanese interface though, you can set it from ATW customize options [alltheweb.com]

Although ATW does let you set the default language to search in, they do not have a native language interface for Japanese. Something along the lines of Google's Japanese interface [google.co.jp] is clearly not available on Fast. That means the number of Japanese who will actually use ATW will be negligible. Unfortunate.

>native language interface for Japanese

The customize option gives the choice of charactersets for display of results, rather than the choice of language to search.

But yes - no japanese interface.

ATW does not have native language interfaces for any languages, except the default English.

Asked for localized versions of ATW FAST's answers are always the same: No, we don't plan local versions for the near future, ATW is only a showcase, we would never compete with our portal partners...

FAST, in sharp contrast to Google or Altavista, is virtually unknown to the general public.
FAST, and ATW are big names in the industry, but hardly outside.

Interesting insight about Fast/ATW and native language interfaces heini. Thanks for sharing that.

Fast press release [fast.no]
(Deal extended)...including SOL.no and Kvasir.no in Norway, Passagen.se and Evreka.se in Sweden, SOL.dk and Kvasir.dk in Denmark, and Suomi24.fi in Finland.

Scandinavian members - a short clarification of the complexities of the SOL group would be helpful. Passagen and Evreka in Sweden, Kvasir and SOL in Norway: do they need different listings in the overview?

So - found some more candidates:
- hispavista.com, spanish [webmasterworld.com]

- sprint.allthesites
any info from the US and Canada on sprint.allthesites? Seems it's not promoted in any way..

- sinohome.net.cn
Couldn't verify they are still using Fast - don't know about importance/traffic

And while we are in Asian regions - I went to all Lycos.asia sites - am I correct in assuming none uses FAST anymore?

Really good post, here we got some great info. Thanks heini!

>Fast in Scandinavia

SOL (Scandinavian Online) covers all 4 countries and they each use Fast in their own way. Each local portal has a directory attatched, either as primary or secondary results.

Not much to ad other than SOL.dk should be [soeg.sol.dk...]

Fast is a major player up here due to this SOL contract.

heini,
please add these portals:

Tiscali.co.uk (through Looksmart!)
Tiscali.dk
Tiscali.at
Tiscali.no
Tiscali.es
Tiscali.fr (through Nomade.fr)
Tiscali.ch

Seems to be that except from Tiscali.co.za all of the Tiscali-net are now on the FAST-dancecard
