Regards to Lycos, I have enjoyed good traffic from Inktomi and ODP based listings. But for some reason, have always had excellent listings on fast.
In the past, made the assumption that keywords in links (internal and external) play a huge role in fasts algo.
Also, one thing that I have really enjoyed about fast is its ability to deep crawl regularly. Loads of cross linking really helps.
Pete below is what fast seems to be indexing -
what fast indexes
1. Text in the title (as much as 1129 characters)
2. Text in the no frames tag section
3. Text in the <option> section of a form
4. Body text
Fast doesn't index -
1. img alt text
2. Meta descriptions
3. Meta keywords
4. Meta http-equiv keywords
5. Text within a <style> tag
