I have noticed that my site dropped dramatically in the last week or 2. At 1 point I had about 2900 pages listed. Today I have about 275.

I don't know what's happening, but I don't like it.

Same here... my site was doing very well in MSN. But from last week the SERP's have dropped badly...
Now trying to figure out...

My observation is that if your home page is not the first one when you do "site:your_url" you are in trouble. MSN just like google may not like dup pages i.e. www.yoursite.com and www.yoursite.com/index.htm See if you can find any.

when i do "site:mydomain.com" it shows only my directory , but it doesnt show all my real pages (they were there a week ago)

Same here. Homepage gone but the rest of site is indexed well.

I suggest all of you affected write to MSN from the contact form on their site. I wrote to them explaining my situation and received a personal reply that their engineers are checking it out.

I hope its not a new form of hijack!
