I think Fast is twitching. NOthing major yet, and I've never really followed a FastDance, but results are moving around for a good number of phrases.

It must be an update!

Yep. One phrase I followed as a test went from 33 to #1. Where are all the people following the FastDance? Where's the FastDance Tool? ;)

Maybe Rumbas and Heini are sleeping right now :-)

I hope its not an update. My site doesn't show at all, even though it was fully crawled two weeks ago.

Sleeping?

OKay. I suppose sleep is required by some. :) But where are all the folks claiming that Fast ruined them? Or that Fast has now fixed their algo and thank the Gods now children will have shoes...

Seriously though, the new, or intended new index looks pretty good. In fact, Fast and AV seemed to have really worked on their respective algos. Now if they could just do that monthly...

I first saw this over the weekend. My site which had been down in the doldrums for a few months is now back in the top 15 - so something has certainly changed.

I'm seeing huge changes in numbers of backlinks for some sites, and no changes in others.

I have no clue about Fast datacenters though, or how they serve results by area or geo-location.

Sleeping?! True SEO's don't sleep ;)

Looks like something has changed in the SERPS, could be an update. At least on a couple of spot checks some rankings moved up. Needs some investingating though.

Thanks for the heads up Ove.

I`m seeing the same thing as you guys. Nice improvements across most of our sites. Has to be some kind of an update from Fast.

Update. Well, FAST is not updating the same way as some other engine. The update occurs on an ongoing basis where a % of the database is being updated. 25% at a time I think - sometimes they update a larger chunk though. Guess that's what we're seeing right now?

Tested a few searches and they didn't change from a week ago - others did. Same with backward links. The joy of SEM :)
