FAST Doing Deals

Gary Price has a brief roundup of some recent Fast Search & Transfer enterprise search deals. FAST has become the de facto enterprise search platform for top-tier IYPs, verticals and newspaper sites.

Of specific interest is the reported deal with Citysearch, once almost the only local game in town. Citysearch still has a very powerful local brand in the A&E space but has struggled to transform itself into a broader IYP.

Citysearch last year lost some traction and mind share to local offerings from search competitors. The ability to surface more content more dynamically and effectively may help boost the city guide as it confronts intensifying competition in 2006.
