33 Pages of one of my sites are indexed by Fast. When I search for the URL of the main page, ATW tells: 'no entries'. But on the other hand ATW tells, below: 'find all 33 pages indexed under [URL]'.
So the pages are indexed, but not findable. This is the case since approx. 4 months. Is there anybody who could resolve this mystery?
Just for my understanding. If you enter the URL (www.yourdomain.com), you can see a page with the Title, Url and a few lines lower:
Find all 33 web pages indexed under "www.yourdomain.com"
You click on the 'all 33 web pages indexed' and the next page says 'no entries'! Right?
Never seen something like that. Is the page clean of SEO tricks?
Takagi> No, when I type "mydomain.com" ATW says: no entries found, but below it says: "find all 33 webpages indexed under 'mydomain.com' "
When you click on this last link, you see all the pages.
So they ARE in the index, but ATW doesn't want to show them; they're not 'searchable' with keywords.
In the beginning of this site, 7 months ago, some pages showed up using keywords, but that ended quickly.
All The SITES had yet another phenomenon: a few times (in a day) they showed up, and on the other moments they didn't.
I'm not aware of any SEO-tricks, except maybe that some of the page titles are in CAPS and I heard some engines don't like that.
In Google, Inktomi, etc. the site is doing well.
BTW: it's not only about the 'well being' of this site - I'm just curious and try to understand the functioning of FAST.

Even though there are several (9) other sites linking to my home page as just www.widget.com, a larger number of links (all my pages) link to /index.html, which FAST can presumably tell is identical, content-wise.
I don't worry about it.
Just my 0.02.
I wonder how this could happen. I'll contact ATW, especially because the filter setting I had seem to be default.
