For I cannot find a thread about this topic, I thought it would be a nice idea to post it. If it has been done before - sorry for doing it again.

Tim Mayer from Overture / FAST Websearch announced, that during this year the two paid inclusion programs from Altavista and FAST will be put together to a single one.
He didnīt say anything about the search engines, i.e. which of them will survive or not.

Thanks for the heads up oLeon.

It would be the natural way for OV/Fast/AV wouldn't it?

I read somewhere here on the board a few days ago that OV would offer PFI from within the client area at OV, but I can't dig it out now.

Of course both will survive - AV as search destinations, ATW most likely as R & D showcase.

The PFI is mostly interesting because of Ex-Fast/Now-Overture partners, Lycos etc. AV still has a network of local sites, which lumped together should get quite a few searches per month.

What I would like to know is how they are going to deal with that AV PFI policy, where you had to pay for each local AV outlet seperately.

A logical step in the right direction.

As long as it's 'pay for inclusion', rather than some kind of psuedo 'pay for click or position' programme!

A combination may also pose some 'interesting' optimisation issues, not to mention geo-targeting options, which I still do not think SE's in general (let alone PFI programmes) handle very well.
