MSN Directory Results.
I thought Looksmart & MSN were finished.

Sorry if this is a lame question but... when MSN return their "Web Directory Sites" results above the "Web Pages" sites I thought these were Looksmart listings. My question is where are these sites being listed under the "Web Directory Results" coming from and how do you get listed in the MSN directory because the MSN submit sites to web directory page just points you towards Overture and advertising.

It seems that the relationship has not yet totally severed. We have some big LookSmart campaigns that are still pulling tons of traffic from MSN, almost as much as before the two supposedly split.

Same here, but I was under the impression that the relationship was supposed to be over Mid-January, and indeed, Looksmart results disappeared for several days before making a return.

From my understanding, though the relationship is over, MSN can continue to use the Looksmart data for as long as they want.

MSN re-signs L$
This is news from today. Terms were not disclosed but L$ is firmly back in the MSN results.
My campaigns are still intact and I could not be happier.
Anyone else?

Additionally, LookSmart recently signed an agreement with Microsoft to continue providing LookSmart search results to MSN for periodic use at its discretion.
