Surely helps digging into a site doesn't it? For me personally it's great as I tend to forget all those syntaxes and it's so nice that you can see "who owns this site", historic info etc. I also like the FAST FACTS box on the right (language, last updated and doc size). What more can you ask for?
I agree, FAST has once again outdone themselves.
Immediate reactions were somewhat mixed feelings. This feature serves as a great reminder on what the SEs know and see about sites, web structures, and site owners.
Of course, there's hardly any magic in it. The informations have all been there for the taking before.
Nonetheless bundling this into a handy feature for the public is another step into making the web more transparent.
About the ownership feature, I'm suprised by now none of the many engines that show your whois data as the sites ownership don't cross reference that information with other sources to make it a more informative feature.
The storage requirements to hold so many copies of so many sites (graphics and all) over the years must be staggering
I think they don't store images, or at least they don't do it for my site. I think they load them directly from it, and because I've deleted almost all of them, I see only text for my old designs.
I had missed that
"Create a Search Button
By adding this "magic" bookmark to your bookmarks list or Links Toolbar, you can search AlltheWeb with a single click.
Make sure your Links Toolbar is being displayed by checking Links under Toolbar in the View menu.
Place your mouse pointer over the "Search AlltheWeb"...blar, blar, blar
But why haven't they got a Tool Bar al la Google? There cannot be many people visiting WWW who don't have it installed. It's a lovely (and quite useful)add on for those of us who are too lazy to go to favouraites or type in :)
for example, search a url out on google, then look at the back links. Then put the url with a prominent keyterm, that will insure that google is delivering everything connected to them terms, and then you will see a heck of a lot more incoming links to site's. Whether it is deliberate by google, or an oversight in the algo construction - it exists.
On the other hand - what ATW is offering is a multi-tier capture of all the links by url association or by key word / brand / url content mentioning - in a sense a authoritative hub - similar in essence to Teoma's expert links algo.
Furthermore, it's the page listings for a url, especially when their is a mismatch in numbers, which illustrates so much about ATW crawl cycle (db farm update's) and also the Spam detectors, that are in use, that are taking out pages with similar content.
All in all - this will definetly become part of my SEO toolbox. ATW shine by this move
I told you, grumble, no one listens to the programmer, grumble .... ;)
I'm a little confused though. How is it that ATW shows 10000's of links that link back to my site, and Google only shows a hundred or so? Does Google only index links that are presented in a certain way?

Trodda, Google has a threashold for showing links to a site. A page used to have aaound PR4 to show in backward links.
Maybe FAST is just really good at finding links? ;)
It looks to me very much like its ordered by the "importance" of the sites with links to the site in question. Not PR of course, but something maybe related to link popularity or "authority".
Not really looked very seriously at it, someone else may have?
