We need more discussion on the MSN Bot!

Now that I'm painfully aware of this bot, I'm very interested in what's coming up. I hope that my 2.28 gg in on day are worth it in the upcoming months.

A question. Do people really go to MSN.com to search for stuff? Are MSN users the same type of consumers that AOL has, only business-wise. It sure seems like it.

I had 50 referrals from MSN yesterday, today is none.
Strange I am ranked grat one day and nowhere the next.

Pew Research found MSN topped the list in Seattle Metro area: [pewinternet.org...]

MSN is also popular in other regions.

Yes - MSN has a considerable percentage of the search market even though all its users are mainly finding sites generated by Yahoo owned businesses at this time (Inktomi and Overture). It is this dilemma that Microsoft are working hard to overcome. This is why MSN bot is so active just now (although the bandwidth problems do seem a little heavy from what I see).

When MSN launches their own results, you can bet this will be met with a worldwide advertising campaign to go with it - but until anyone starts seeing beta results and reporting them in here, the Microsoft Search forum remains a rumour mill.

It's going to be great to watch this unfold...

I'll add to this that msn is the default SE for many users ... just because they got it preinstalled or because they use the msn internet software for dial-up or broadband... also if they are using IE and the type an unknows domain it could defult to a search in msn.

just my two cents..

Carlos.
