ATW & Link Popularity
any views on how much weight FAST put on incoming links.

I have been trying to figure out just how much emphasis FAST put on the quality and number of incoming links to a site. I have seen contradictions to all conclusions.

Fast ranks inbound links differently from how Google does it, but it's still a huge player in there Algo, even though it looks like the focus more on the page factors.

Also I'm seeing some links counting more than others.
There are several factors going into the ranking process.
You can usually spot some serps where with little incomning links pages outrank highly linked pages.
Still, good links give pages a considerable boost, especially DMOZ (sorry Laz ;))

Is there a % calc for the main players re. incoming links. If not would anyone care to do a guesstimate for newbies like myself, would be useful in terms of time allocation...

Rich, check the competitions backward links. That should give you an idea of what you got todo to beat them.

Thanks Rumbas

Will do, it's obvious when you aren't a lazy b*gger isn't it!
