I have a couple of sites with over 100,000 pages, both of which are well indexed on Google. But MSN has stopped at just a few thousand pages for both sites.
Both sites have been live for over a year (one is 6 years old), and most of the pages have been indexed for at least 9 months. But for whatever reason, MSN just won't go any farther.
These are both profesional sites, full of rich content (no spam) and each of the pages are unique. I do use dynamic pages, but that hasn't stopped MSN from indexing a few thousand of them. So I don't think it's related to the dynamic pages, all of which are very simple and consistent (e.g. page.asp?param=12345).
Has any one else had problems getting large sites indexed in MSN? Any suggestions on what to do? Or is MSN just that bad?
I'm just curious if you know of any reason why they do not index entire sites? Using the site:www.domain.com function for MSN search, I realize that a large precentage of my site is not indexed, but am having trouble finding documentation that provides insight on this. Also, my site has a multiple language feature, which I have also noticed has a definitive effect on the results for my site lookup. For instance, when I type in site:www.domain.com in MSN, the majority of the pages that it shows are for non-english speaking results (especially as I move deeper into the results). Any thoughts or ideas on this? Or has anyone seen similar issues? Thanks ahead.
