Are they rolling or monthly/bi-monthly.

Lots of new pages listed for my sites.

Are ATW updates rolling or monthly - like the big G or when they feel like it?

Canary, ATW updates in chunks and slices. Frankly I have not been able to establish a pattern. Looking over the refresh dates on large and small sites I can't say I have found a way to force a refreshed listing yet.

We roll a new index every 7-8 days. This refreshes a little over a quarter of the index. We also have a daily update which refreshes 5-10 million pages.

Hey, Tim, thanks for the info!

The daily update, that's not the news crawling, I assume? (as those are respidered comtinuously)
What kind of sites do you refresh daily?

Hello Tim,

It's very good to have a Fast rep over here.
Hope you will participate and shed some light on some of our our questions.

Good Stuff - Thanks for all the replies.

Impressive to refresh quarter of the index over 7-8 days.

Getting some good referrals from some of ATW search partners at the moment too :)

Tim, thanks for clarifying that. Much apreciated.

>daily updates

Nice. I'd really like to know too, what you base the selection of sites that get updated on?

I guess Tim is talking about the PFI listings here.

Guess you're right heini.
Wasn't their a number of PFI pages in the db floating around somewhere? If I remember correctly it was in that ball park area. Not sure my memory serves me here though..

On the other hand I see some pages that I know are not PFI get respidered on a rather frequently basis.

We have a crawl of both PFI and free pages every 24-48 hours. The number I was referring to was free crawled pages not paid. Of course we have paid inclusion too.

Tim, thanks for clarifying. In any case I'd love to know which free pages get refreshed every 24-48 hours?

Canary

Yep, I wonder if we are talking about the same quarter of the index being refreshed - much like Altavista and Google do with their fresh dates or a different quarter so the whole index is update once every 28-32 days.

Hi,

Like said before, FAST does not spider the site at once. Last month I renamed a few pages and ATW lists both old and new file names. I think this will corrected once the spider tries to index old pages. I believe also that they don't do a massive update like Google. As they get new pages indexed they add it almost "live".

How often is FAST-Webcrawler deepcrawling sites?

using the URL Investigator I can read about "Last changed". (for my homepage 2003-06-09).
But this date is valid for the Homepage only, not for all other pages.

Last time FAST-Webcrawler visited parts of my site, was 2003-05-06.
After then FAST-Webcraler/3.7./Firstpage visited regularly (every 1-4 days) the homepage (index.shtml) only.

Tim,

Glad we finally got you to surface. Did you get a response to the BT email by the way?

today I have noticed the first deepcrawl since 2003-05-06 this means, they have a schedule for my site of about 1,5 months?

is this depending on the "importance" of a page?
or is 1,5 month today the regular behavior of fast?

time before I had a shorter cycle of deepcrawls.
