Any comment on how to make it index my main page?

[edit reason] No specifics please - thanks! [/edit]
Now on to your question:
FAST has indexed all your pages, but you can't seem to find your index page, right?
It does sound a bit odd. Have you tried checking if the default file (index.html, home, dafault etc.) is there?
Sometimes when you just check domain.com, it doesn't show. It should be there as FAST has probably found your other pages from the index page and, as you say, you have links to the index page from all the others.
i had the same problem with our site. the only thing which helped was an email to fast. i believe they reinstated the page manually.
although i did not get a reason why it was dropped, the response was very quick. they have great customer service.
btw this was for a page using insite select - so must have been some sort of computer glitch.
I actually check the database by typing "url.all:http://www.alwiz.com" in the search and 26 results return but none is my index file. :( Any more idea which can help me? I have resubmit the main side again yesterdat.
I was thinking on submitting my side through side select. Questions :
1. Does side select crawl only one single URL or it will crawl anything below the domain?
2. 2nd URL is cheaper, must I submit them together with the 1st or I can submit them few months later?
It crawls all the pages you pay for. If you pay for only the index page, then only the index page will be crawled.
>2. 2nd URL is cheaper, must I submit them together
No, you can wait and add more pages later. You will get additional pages for the cheaper rates.
