verry odd search results here.

The Fast search is showing #9 for my keyword on searching then on the second search, the site can't be found. Searching again shows up, searching again disapered. Shows up on every other search.

Any comments?

Hi Bosh, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

I have no idea why your site only shows on every second search. Only thing I can imagine would be that some language or adult filters kick in.

Did you check through one of their partners? Is it the same inconsistency at, say, Lycos?

It could just be a technician working on the database. The chances are that you are switching between a new and near new index. Check back tomorrow and it should have stopped.

Is this a new site? New page? Has it been in the index before?

Did you search from the same window? Fast doesn't handle multiple windows very well I just noticed when I was figuring out something else(see my other post, language issue).

I just checked again.

Lycos and hotbot results #8 and #9 res every other results and All The Web constant #8, so thats good news for me.
