FAST Passes 2 Billion

FAST announced today that their major growth drive over the past few months has pushed their database at AlltheWeb over the 2 billion mark. Their number 2,095,568,809 is a bit higher than Google's advertised number of 2,073,418,204, but then Google's number includes their unindexed URLs as well. Some preliminary comparisons of actual search results show the two fairly even with the difference often found in the number and kind of duplicates in each.
