When I do a search for my site with HotBot using Fast I get the URL returned in the search results and no description as yet.
The weird part is that the results also return a date of December 31, 1969 and then the file size (1 byte). None of the files on my server have this date so it is a little strange.
Any of you Fast gurus know what this might be? ;)
December 31, 1969 is "time zero" for time-stamps on Web page files, so it is the default. Likewise, a byte count of 1 is probably a default.
This sounds similar to what happens in Google when the SE is aware of your page - having found (or in your case, having been told of) the link, but not having yet spidered the page. Therefore, no description is showing, and probably no page title, either.
Once Fast spiders your page(s), this weirdness will clear up.
