Basically ATW has all the known ranking criteria in their algo.
Strangely I always fare well in ATW with the exact same optimization I do for Google. (Strange only because several members claim the opposite).
You need to do:
- good onpage optimization, that is: title, desc, headers, etc.
- good internal linking, relevant anchor texts
- good inbound links, with relevant anchortexts
Tip: look at the clusters, see where the results are coming from, see how they are grouped.
TipII: Don't believe the hype of keyword stuffed domains. Keywords in domains help in exact same way as in Google: they make having keywords in anchor text easier, that's all.

Same here - I've never tried to optimise for them but by optimising for google I get surprised when I (not often) check the SERPS over at ATW and find good rankings on the same keywords and phrases.

BTW: ATW does CTR measurements on many serps, probably not a bad idea to just click your url from time to time :)

Surely that's unethical. If I go down that road then the next step is clicking on my competitors' Overture listings once a day when I check the bids! ;)
ahem... who said that?![/edit]

Same here. Over time ATW will find the sites linking back to you and you will start to rise. It pays to be patient.

I was ranking good in All the Web/Fast now not so good, all of a sudden like with in 2 weeks, their algo has changed for sure...
I was like #6 for a big keyword, #10 on google, now Im #8 on google and #18 on All the web. All may keywords suck, #1's on Inkomi and google are #8-#15 on All the web......
I cant figure it out.....
I have the most backlinks in All the web aswell......

If you got HotBot, and look at Fast, you get dates, Im competing with sites that have dates like October 8, 2002
What the hell.....

Yes i agree. Being in a unique situation I can say that they are devaluating multiple one way links from single sites. Something like a PR Cap. :)

I'm on par with most stuff said here. IMO Fast likes on page stuff more than some of the others. That makes their serps a bit more on topic for me.
Other than that make sure you have that ODP listing and ensure that your internal link text is optimised too.
