What am I doing wrong with fast? I did not specially optimise my sites for either engine, and I especially can't understand how I can get 274 hits from inktomi for site 3 and none from fast?

First, FAST and Inktomi rank sites very differently.
How do you rank on the two?
Does your site come up on FAST on the same keywords?
Secondly, Inktomi has a wider reach in the US with MSN being the most important one. FAST's reach is in Europe with Lycos portals being important.
FAST's strenght is in Europe hence a localized site with non-english language tend to do best.
Is your site in English?
I have a couple of fresh listings via PT targeting Germany and they are doing surprisingly well. Listings are so fresh anyhow that I don't have a report from PT at this time.
I have a nagging suspicion the new report feature from PartnerSite does not work at this time..Anybody getting reports?
All 5 from fast were in the first two days. Not one more click from fast over the month since then. Inktomi has been adding a few every day over the same period.
Our site is quite heavily visited by Europeans via other referrers, so I would have expected at least some action from there via fast.
Yes, the url search does show that ATW has us listed.
