At the same time, I was visited by Fast-Alltheweb and finally my site shows up, but with a strange difference.
All the pages in my site appear without the Title and Description, except for the main index page and other 4 or 5 static pages.
This hurts my position, because my pages show up veeeeery late in the results.
To my knowledge, there's nothing fancy about the dynamic URLs (Google's got them just fine) that might impede a spider from getting the information of each page.
I've checked for validation from several tools and they all pass.
I apologize if I can't make myself clear.
If optimizing for Google, is similar to Alltheweb, then, what is going on?
Is it the way Alltheweb works with free indexing?
Or am I doing something wrong?
The fact that a FAST representative had to come to this board at all about this issue should tell any objective observer that it is a serious, widespread problem that they need to deal with and apparently are dealing with.

Some pages are still showing and the links show up for links:. Would you think it was just a server clitch, or can we have done a baddie thing, having said that google came though like a train** last time and we did well? But does atm have a different set of rules?
Yes, very much. FAST's raking criteria is somewhat different from Google's. For some pointers, check these threads:
BTW, welcome to WebmasterWorld newsparrot :)
Google had 45 pages.
FAST had 8 pages.
This seems consistent with our web logs. Not sure if the FAST URL inclusion just includes the paid ones or not. We had a bigger presence in FASTs index months ago when we didn't pay for their URL inclusion.
Definitely. PFI is pay per page.
When submitting you need to give the exact urls of the pages you want indexed. If you pay for one url and give them your index page than that's what gets spidered and refereshed each 24-48 hours for one year.
That's the deal.
