I'm using Opera at work and something made me laugth. I saw an ATW banner ad (I'm getting work to pay) in my opera browser. The phrase used is:

Try the freshest search avaliable on the web.

Do they have anything to back up this claim? Sure Gigablast with it's realtime indexing could qualify. What do you guys and gals think?

FAST does refresh fairly often. Seems like they are on a two week cycle. I have had sites get listed in FAST in that period of time, while at the same time all the others took much longer.

Sometimes they do not seem to update, or only do very small updates for a couple of months. Also some sites submitted just seem to take a very long time to get in FAST and there seems to be no good reason.

When they are active they do seem to update quicker than the rest so I guess they have a reasonably valid claim.

I still think that their claim is valid. I refer back to my GigaBlast example (Realtime indexing, how can you beat that?)

seems this function has been "temporarily" disabled for a few weeks now. I hope it gets running again soon.

chris_f:

As you can see, they claim to have the freshest search on the web, not the freshest search results. Freshest search could mean 'The freshest search software' or 'The freshest search algo' or 'The freshest way of search for users' ar whatever ;-)
