FAST not indexing?
Why so many more in Google?

 12:47 pm on Dec 18, 2002 (gmt 0)

Hi all.
My site has been running for 7 or 8 months now, and a host search for my URL on Google turns up 2,370 results.

The same search on FAST/Alltheweb turns up just 90 results.

Is there any major reason for this? I've submitted my site to FAST and did this before I submitted to Google. I've been waiting for months for the situation to improve.

What am I doing wrong?

Could be a number of reasons, KMxRetro.

Dynamic pages are not necessarily a problem, but I'm not sure if static urls are not still preferred.

Generally there have been statements from Fast saying that it's not their goal to index everything.
They rather try to index relevant pages from all the web ;)
Does of course not imply your pages are not relevant, but I do not think Fast automatically indexes all pages from a site just because the spider knows about those pages.

I have often seen sites getting indexed peu a peu over several months.
