Microsoft bCentral Pay $50 or ignore though MSN bot is sending refferals 3Mice msg:1539338 2:06 pm on Mar 30, 2005 (gmt 0) Hi, I launched a new site two months ago and after exchanging links with a few sites i thought of paying the $50 in the near future to be included at microsoft bCentral directory.
I looked at my traffic logs the other day and suprisingly I the msn bot has crawled my site and started sending me visitors to my site.
My question is - should i go ahead and pay the fifty bucks to be included in the MSN directory though MSN bot is already sending me refferals or will it be a waste of money

I can't say for sure but I have seen bCentral entries in my logs after I signed up for $49 but I had a lot of MSN bot traffic before and after that date. I do know that most of my customers are now coming via MSN and not Google, so the bCentral investment may have paid off. tictoc msg:1539340 2:36 am on Apr 5, 2005 (gmt 0)
I haven't noticed any traffic from bCentral on several sites that I added to their directory.
