Also: talking about Yahoo we should perhaps keep in mind they run a directory which relies almost exclusively on PFI.
I agree though - daily refreshing offers opportunities to tweaking, it should give some advantages to people hwo know what the are doing.
What would you think anyhow is the number of paid pages in FAST's db?
I'd be very surprised if FAST's 2 + Bill. index holds more than 0,1% or so of PFI pages. Very probably it's rather 0,01..
Nevertheless, Littleman has lately started a thread on PFI as business model somewhere here, which I can't see to find at the moment, in which some very good points are being made. It's far from being a perfect solution in my view.
If they hook up with Yahoo!, I'm sure the number of paid pages will increase just a little bit. ;)
I have to agree that emulating the INK business model may not be a very "swift" decision.
we've had members here on the board complaining about ranking poorly for their paid pages..
Teoma interests me much more than FAST.

While I am happy to diversify, and a monopoly is rarely a good thing, Google has treated us well as website owners, and as a business. I would only be dissappointed if inktomi got the deal.
#1 and #2 in FAST are almost exact dupes *and* are just doorway pages from some affiliate. Google has much better results.
Having said that I think FAST has the capacity to step up to the plate and it *will* be nice to have another major player.

It looks very good for Fast overall but I'm not convinced this pre-marital "testing-out" is monogamous and that Fast on this evidence is a shoe-in.. Hopefully Y! is using a c****m.
