Found this in my referrer logs:

[fastwebtest.trd.fast.no...]

Anybody knows what it means?

fast.no is a regional version of alltheweb, so I guess this is a test page where someone clicked through to your site. Might be someone setting up an affiliate site or something similar.

Well, my first thought was that /eval/ means "evaluation". Be it good or bad.

The site has paid inclusion via PT.

My guess is it's the FAST crew checking the site manually.

This area is password protected to. Looks to me also your site was getting a manual review.

Might have been a hand review, might have been several other things. Fast has from this and other subdomains done a lot of testing and surfing, I remember at one point several people had similar stuff in their logs.

BTW: Fast.no is the original FAST homepage, fastsearch.com is the US mirror.
