I can get hardly any results out of MSN search at the moment. Maybe the data is being switched across here.

They already said they are only doing limited testing this week. I am not seeing it either. I think this is a false alarm.

I'm getting "Sorry, no results were found containing " for all searches I do from the msn.com homepage with IE, with the old search header and footer.

Firebox shows the beta results, with the new header and footer, so seems to be a cookie driven change - with bugs!

Same here; "no results found".

Closed out and came back and got the old Yahoo results. For guys with billions and billions, I sure wish they could just get to the point where they can throw the switch on this thing.

A true thrid engine is welcomed news.

Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest
Windows Updates.

I couldnt see the new MSN search until I did the update and rebooted.

Yesterday, I was seeing beta results appearing on the main msn search.

Now come on ... no results? ... that's not being fair on MSN ... they do have some results:

[search.msn.com...]

... pick a site - any site ... 2 results.

Does anybody have an educated guess about how much search traffic they would re-route from regular searches during beta testing? 1%? 50%?

The rumors are Feb. 1 will be the full roll out.

If bugs are fixed, we will see it full time this weekend. Only the announcement and press blitz will come on the first.

I can't wait. All my pages seem to rank well with them.

For those who like data:

I compared results from beta.search.msn.com, msn.com, and search.msn.com in IE, FireFox, and Opera at the following three different times; before installing updates, after installing updates and before rebooting, and after installing updates and after rebooting.

I'm in Raleigh, NC, and the beta results were completely unique in all browsers in all different times.

Essentially, at this time, nothing's going on on this end.

Brett, sounds like the little birds you've been listening to have been using Bill Gates' bird feeder...

Wbs_Stt:
I haven't been able to catch any beta results occuring at the regular site when *I* did the searching..and I've been trying a whole bunch of times (I'm in Alabama)...but they are definitely showing up in my log files for 50 pages we have that can hardly be found in regular MSN searches, but are #1 or #2 in beta.

This is great news. Based on what you just said, it sounds like their target is Feb 1 at the latest.

I'm seeing full beta results when searching staight off the .com homepage.

My results are staggering my 6 sites are all #1 for all their most important searches - no way it can last but great to see.
An site still sandboxed after 8 months is really performimg as well.

Shame nobody in my area uses msn.
I hope they are planning a worldwide advertising campaign

Took me a while to uncover any evidence in my logs, but got there eventually.

I assume there is no testing going on at msn.co.uk as I would have found stuff much quicker.

But yes, it does look good.

I hope the launching of new MSN Search would bring about a demise of the Google sandbox theory and everything goes back to normal at Google.

My .2 cents.

demise of the sandbox theory, or the sandbox itself?

Sorry, I meant the "Sandbox" deep freeze phenomenon.
