FAST results aggregated - is this new?

And will Lycos etc follow suit with links?

My database-driven site has thousands of pages indexed by FAST. On searches such as "keyword town" where there were more than one entry per town I used to get a series of results - all genuinely distinct - in sequence. This has now changed so where for example I would have seen our site in slots 5-15 for "keyword town1" I now only get position 5, with a "more hits from" link.

While this is a shame for me, I can understand it from the user's pov.

However, when the same search is done on Lycos I just get a single entry at no 5, with no "more hits from" link, which seems a shame.

Does anyone know whether these aggregated results are new, just new to me and whether sites taking FAST results will be bringing in the "more hits from" functionality?

its usually a crawl - update issue, i've seen it on a few sites, where for a while it will list multiple pages, then default to the highest listing only. Which then relays to Lycos, and other Fast SERP partners.
