New MSN Algo Having Problems

Like many, 80% of my pages went from top 10 on MSN to page 3.
Like many I scrambled to see WHAT I WAS DOING WRONG.

Until I stopped looking for my pages and really started looking at the results I was getting for my keywords...NOT EVEN CLOSE. Little to No relevance.
Looking for blue widgets in North Shores Florida...getting used car lots in North Chicago, or pet grooming in North Carolina.

So, if you've lost pages or placement...relax (it's probably not your site) and wait for the bugs to get worked out.

Surely MSN is working on this...

If you are experiencing the same or have comments, please post.
I'd like to know it's not just me... :-) Fish

Yes, live.com is showing some promise for us .. and we too were slammed in the last google deployment. Mainly due to dupe content because they spidered us under SSL. I honestly think a competitor did something to make that happen, we have been struggling since March, but we are getting spidered again and 301's in place so it cannot happen again.

Goog appears to be running multiple algos and switching from hour to hour... maybe it's their way of giving some sites a chance... not really sure.

MSN has never really given us much traffic and we've been around since 1997.. but we are trying .. but without some sort of way to give MSN urls it's really out of our control.
