Hey all,

I just noticed from my logs today I'm holding spot 10 on MSN.com's serps for my optimized keyword.

Before I do a little jig, just wondering, is that MSN's new search beta I'm listed for, or is that another robot MSN is using currently (ink or fast)?

Thanks.

I am not sure what is happening with MSN and am curious as well. Since signing up with Looksmart, we have maintained the #2 position for almost a year. Now in the last 30 days, MSN is displaying a different page from our site and it is ranking at #14. It is not the page we submitted to Looksmart.

Has MSN dropped Looksmart already?

They're using Ink right now, I think
which means when Y! starts using Ink, I'll be set ;)

Does anyone know how long it takes for msn/inktomi to spider all the pages? It has spidered the index page only and my site has been up for about six months now. Should I submit each page individually or should I just continue the link exchange campaign and the spiders will crawl the whole site eventually? Any comments appreciated, :)

MSN is showing "web directory sites" first again for me. It looks like looksmart/zeal.

Im getting looksmart listing again for the last two days. Is this just a server they have not updated, or
what. Its been two weeks, since they cancelled looksmart. Why can't MSN finally bury this one.
