I searched for "Florence"
[alltheweb.com...]

At position n. 2 there is a page that doesn't have the word Florence at all: not in the title, in the body or in the Metatags.

Are the links so important in the Fast algo?

This is the official Web Server of the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence.

The word Florence is on the page a few more times. They also have some directory listings of note.

Hi Brett!

>The word Florence is on the >page a few more times

The word Florence is not in that page. There is the word Firenze.

The word Florence is in the English pages of that site.

Maybe Fast is considering two things:

- the ppresence of the word in the full web (in all the pages of the web)
- the link popularity for that word

Angiolo,

From here in the U.S., clicking on the number two listing takes you to the English version. On the page, a link is provided to the Italian pages.

Thank you Web Guerrilla!

From here (Italy) I get the Italian page; on the page, a link is provided to the English pages.

How can I have the same search results as I was outside Italy?

Should I configure the browser in a special way?
Should I have an English browser version or the search engine give me the italian page identifiyng the Italian IP number?

Thank you!

from here in Slovenia i get :

Not Acceptable
An appropriate representation of the requested resource / could not be found on this server.

Apache/1.3.12 Server at www.uffizi.firenze.it Port 80

These "available variants" are links.

So they automatically serve you with the page depending where you come from? thats cool! :)
