Overview: FAST Search is one of the largest scale search engines that spiders the entire web extremely rapidly

Launched in 1999, FAST Search is a Norwegian company that took the web by surprise. FAST Search was the first search engine to break the 200 million pages indexed milestone and continues to spider and crawl the web at phenomenal rates keeping up with competing search engines in terms of volume of pages and freshness of data spidered. FAST Search also powers additional search results to Lycos.

Submission & Ranking Process

META Tags FAST Search supports the Robots META tag and uses your title to index your site. It does not appear that the Description or Keywords META Tags are currently supported.

Spidering FAST Search will spider or follow all links it finds on your website and index them into their database. You can control the degree of spidering through a standardized robots governing file or META tags [See Robots Generator]

No Spam/META Abuse FAST Search will not index websites that try to "Spam" their index with the same page over and over. In fact, FAST Search has the ability to filter out duplicate pages and may not index multiple versions.

Additional Information FAST Search recognizes upper and lower case as different characters. As well, FAST Search conducts full page archiving in that when it spiders your website, it will store all contents of your pages into its database.

Popularity Counts If lots of websites link to your site, then your site will be ranked higher in FAST Search's rankings.
