The [url=www.webmasterworld.com/forum6/669.htm]Breaking News post[/url] about Inktomi supplying search results for MSN could be big news in Asia, or so it seems. I know that [url=search.msn.co.jp]MSN Japan[/url] barely shows on anybody's radar screens here. In Japan MSN Search has an editor powered directory and web search results provided by AltaVista. There is no Add URL and it usually falls well below the big guys like Yahoo, Lycos, Infoseek, Excite, Goo and several of the LookSmart powered ISP/directory portals. This could only be good news for MSN Japan as far as I can see... It's a little early to tell what effect if any this will have on Goo, who is Inktomi's only partner in the Japanese SE market now. It will be interesting to see how things pan out.

How's this affect the rest of Asia?
