Just a quick note for people wanting to check the date of spidering of pages in the fast index. You can use [evreka.passagen.se ] , a serch engine powered by fast.
Iam not sure how much fast is involved with lycos.se it seems like it have their own life sometime.
btw: Arent you guys celebating new year??
It looks like evreka is working on cleaner results they usally have alot of sites in the same url.
Lycos.se i dont understand that but you could get in there in a few days! they are using their own directory wich is very fast mostley.
The same problem there wich is in odp they change your title and description and use it for search results.
Lazer, what makes you say Ink?
..the Hotbot logo?
Right now Evreka is showing default Fast results.
A search for denmark yield around 780K results on Fast using default language and on Evreka using default which is 'World'.
I think the flux we saw should go under "still toying with new features" ;)
Ove it too anoys me that they use the ODP stuff if you're in there. I would be nice if they'd at least let us control the way our sites appear.
When you do a search and get you answer, the first 3 answer is from the directory if there match your search word. The world search get answer from FAST and the swedish.
The directory is updated once a week seens January before once in 14 days.
Hope fully we could pay for spidering in the end of Jan.
The directory got 40 000 sites in the db.
So its very important to get in the directory and with keyword in title and hope they will not change it. Its the same thing like odp changing titles.
Inktomi have nothing to do with lycos exept for hotbot.
Lazer is correct: when he posted the above comment, Lcos.se had a big fat Inktomi logo on their SERPs. We saw the very same thing back on 4. December on several Lycos sites:
They use Ink as backdrop for Fast down times.
