A small reverse for the big G - well done to FAST on this one. Two or three more and we could see fast take a more significant chunk of the marketplace.

I see freeserve at about 0.5% on my biggest B2C site so it is not an insignifcant coup.

I think this is NOT the replacement for Google.

Fast DATA search is different from Fast WEB search.

==================================================
FAST Data Search™ = An enterprise search solution combining search and filter technologies. Enterprises like Reuters and Dell collect and deliver virtually any type of information, from any source, in any period of time

FAST Web Search™ = A search solution for Internet portals like Terra-Lycos, FAST Web Search is the engine under the hood for some of the world's most trafficked portals
==================================================

I think we've been here before. Unfortunately the original thread seems to have disappeared:
[webmasterworld.com...]

But the original press release from FAST, dated 3rd July, is still available:
[fastsearch.com...]

Isn't this just the same non-story (ie. only DATA search, not web search)?

No websearch! Sorry for being unclear there. Websearch still provided by Google.
It's Fast Datasearch. It's a search solution for all internal information, still a good thing for Fast.
It's corporate search anyhow, no direct consequences for us.
Quit-man, you are right. I had simply forgotten about that older thread. I did sound familiar though...;)

If you actually go to

[freeserve.com...]

and conduct a search, you can see how/where they get their results. :(

I just did this [ifind.freeserve.com] search for WebmasterWorld. No doubt it's Google, but mouse over the url and you see www.6overture..

I know that Brett does not pay for Overture?

Hmm?
