Some strange happening at MSN search last few days. The uk search was redirecting to the us version yesterday, and today they have dropped the Overture results from the US version.
I don't know what the contracts say...but seems to me that MSN dislikes Yahoo, and Yahoo owns Inktomi. If they do go with Google, I bet Overture loses out to ad words. But then again, CNN mixes Google and Overture, so it can be done.
"MSN SEARCH RESULTS Due to a technical problem, some search listings are currently not appearing on MSN. We are working quickly to resolve this issue, and expect to resume serving search results to MSN very shortly. Thank you for your patience. "
