I think that at the moment the order of results on MSN is something like this;

1. Featured Sites
2. Sponsored Sites
3. Web Directory Sites (Looksmart)
4. Web Pages (Inktomi)

What do you think the order will be say a couple of months into 2004? Presumably they wont just leave a hole where Looksmart was.

Take a look at www.msn.co.uk to see the results of the blend.

Baseon on what's showing on msn.co.uk as well as the comments in their press release, I'd say that is exactly what they are going to do.

Top 3 = Overture
The Rest = Ink (Which will ultimately be replaced by content from MSNBot)

Has MSN gone to just OT and Ink? For days now the directory listings of LS have been gone. I thought MSN was going to wait until Jan 15th.

Looks like they've been testing it here and there. I was startled a few days ago (Northern California) when LS results had disappeared for me, but not elsewhere in the country.

The results are back for me again.

Looksmart stock is up 35% so far today. Any clues?

Once you hit bottom you can only go up.

The bottom was a little further down.

I guess some investors do not realize that this will be the last good earnings report.
