Anybody know anything about this MSN site is? I keep seeing it in my logs. I get hits from it, and my GoTo listings, if I am a top 3 for certain keywords, show there as "featured sites," sometimes my regular MSN listing also shows there. What's odd is that when I click back to that site from my logs, I get that MSN site and it shows in the search bar the keywords that sent the visitor to me -- but my site does not show on my clickback. Must be some kind of dynamic ranking being used? Also, I have not found a way to reach that site independently of clicking back on that URL from where it shows in my logs.
Also what was really interesting to me is that MSN uses 3 GoTo results at the top as featured listings on that spbasic.htm? site. It doesn't do that at its regular search function.
rencke: I think that referrer will be auto.search.msn.com/results.asp
spbasic hits come from the built in search function of MSIE (the frame on the left side when you hit the search button). The serp is titles only, and the descriptions are built into the title attribute of the anchor tag and show up as tool tips.
