MSN results fluctuating
testing 2 different result sets?

I'm noticing that the index appears different for the same query depending on time of day/date that the query is done. Almost the way google looks when they serve results out of different datacenters. For a few of my terms I'm on the first page and then a day later or a few hours later I'm on page 2 and then back to page 1 later. It doesnt look like pure INK on the occasion where I go to page 2.

Just tried it again and now I get fluctuating results within seconds of each other. is anyone else seeing this?

I guess I had never noticed it (if this was occuring before) because LookSmart was always in the way for most of the keyword queries that I check.

I also had a nice cushion of Looksmart listings on most keywords until last week. Can anyone spot an "Inktomi Dance" when it starts? Maybe we're seeing the backlinks updated.
