Washingtonpost.com, a long-standing citysearch partner, has long purchased citysearch software to power their city guide and, in fact, a Citysearch search with geography “Washington DC” still redirects users to the washington post site.
Well, it looks like the washingtonpost has selected FAST to power their local search/city guide (yes, they are tied…the city guide portion provides the list and editorial content while the local search provides the ability to search geospatially, etc). FAST has been getting a lot of business with their geospatial feature they added a while back. It will also be interesting to see how Citysearch responds and if they choose to stay with their engine or with FAST as well.
