Is Altavista updating daily?

I updated some on my pages on Friday and noticed all the updates were now showing(Monday) on Altavista.

When did they start updating so quickly? I must have missed it. I still get very little traffic from them though.

AV has been updating frequently for a while. If you click on a link of yours in their SERP, then they will recrawl your site within a day...;)

Sort of a good indicator that, if they have the bandwidth to do it, they don't have the traffic to justify us taking the time to 'click spam' them...

Yeap, AV keeps revisiting my new site every day. It came once and grabbed the first page. Then it deep crawled it right after. And since then comes every day.

Seems like AV is preparing for a battle (or is it?)!
