From free inclusion to paid?
free to paid transition

 11:25 am on Oct 21, 2002 (gmt 0)
Hi Guys,
Some of our domain names are currently listed in FAST through free hand submission.
What benefits would using the paid inclusion program make to my rankings?

Best Regards,

Nothing as far as I know....

i submitted 3 URL's to FAST on the same day that PT launched their fast inclusion service. Still not been included (this is EXPRESS?). PT support say that FAST are upgrading their database? hmmmm!

The major difference is that with the free submission, you can put through 50 URLs and chances are, ALL of them will be indexed. If you have to pay for each one, it will cost a small fortune.

Anyone any ideas as to if or when Fast will phase out their free submit?

>What benefits

- click-through stats
- 48 hour refresh

>phase out their free submit

Don't think they ever will. They need to maintain a large db and it can't consist only of paid pages..

How's the traffic from Fast? Considering some paid inclusions via P/T now that they offer it.
Are paid inclusions with Fast generally worth the money?

>worth the money
Depends on where your target market is.
For many countries in Europe Fast has good reach, so being in Fast is important.
For the US market it's basically Lycos.com. Not a top traffic generator.
One of the benefits is permanent respidering, which for some pages can be of high value.
