In its quarterly filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, LookSmart said MSN recently tested a new search results layout in the United Kingdom that eliminated the directory layer of listings provided by LookSmart. LookSmart said MSN plans a similar test for the United States in October.

Separately, Payne said MSN is sticking with paid-inclusion partner LookSmart, which allows website operators to pay to have more of their pages included in internet searches.

Has anyone noticed if the MSN crawler is using LookSmart directory listings as a feed to crawl through?
