DMOZ data?

My site comes up on a number of searches, but always with the index page.

My explanation is that it's DMOZ data, though the site has been extensively spidered.

Any other reasons for directory extensions not appearing?

Glengara - not sure if I understand you correctly:

Dirctory extensions vs index page: so you're wondering why your site doesn't come up as www.example.com but as www.example.com/index.htm?

Hi Heini, didn't explain properly; on a search for seo newsletters, my site comes up as www.example.com; as Fast has spidered the site I would have expected to see www.example.com/resources/seo_newsletters.

Also the site description is an old DMOZ one, which is why I suspect the data on the site is old DMOZ stuff, and hasn't been updated from the Fast spidering.

I remember reading they'd got behind with their indexing, but had assumed they'd caught up.

If the site is included at Dmoz, Fast will show the Dmoz data in the SERPS.
Think they cluster the results somehow.

>caught up
Hmm I'm afraid they are still lagging behind a bit. Collecting what members in different threads have said doesn't make for a clear picture here. There have been updates, but apparently not to the degree we all have been hoping for.

Well they solved my problem, by dropping most of my pages.
Coincidence? I won't be complaining about them again, not here anyway!

OUCH
Glengara - sorry to hear that.

>complaining

We need to be cautious here. While only some weeks ago I would say this - meaning hand review - does not happen, today I'm not so sure anymore.

Since Google started their rat 'em, rat 'em campaign, things have started shifting.

I have anyhow never before heard anyone claiming they got dropped after posting an complaint.

But Fast has got an Spam policy out, discussed here some time ago. Sites related to SEO might be an easy target.
